Good Faith Estimate
Beginning January 1, 2022, federal laws regulating client care have been updated to include the “No Surprises” Act. This Act requires health care practitioners to provide current and potential clients a “Good Faith Estimate” (GFE) on the cost of treatment. This new regulation is designed to provide transparency to patients regarding their expected medical expenses and to protect them from surprises when they receive their medical bills. It allows patients to understand how much their health care will cost before they receive services.
Therapy is an extremely personal experience tailored to the needs of the client and the presenting concerns. Due to the nature of this unpredictability and my commitment to meeting and catering to the needs of every client individually, determining duration of treatment is ethically impossible.
You and I will continue to review progress and make personalized decisions regarding both the frequency and duration of treatment periodically. Additional or lower frequency of services that may be recommended based on your developing situation and progress. This estimate of your costs is only an estimate, and your actual charges may differ.
This estimate of costs is not a contract and does not obligate you to obtain clinical services from me. You have the right decide at any time to terminate services. No advanced payment is expected or required.
I have provided here my current session fees, projected for a 12 month period with differing levels of sessions scheduled. These fees do not include the reimbursement you may receive from your healthcare insurance under the out-of-network benefits.
Single session fees $150
Weekly sessions between 38 to 52 weeks : Estimate cost $5,700-$7,800
Bi-weekly sessions between 38 to 52 weeks : Estimate cost $2.850-$3,900
Monthly sessions between 38(about 6 months) to 52 weeks(12 months) : Estimate cost $900-$1,800
The above examples are provided to give an idea of the financial expectations for a calendar year. The frequency and duration is dependent on your individual needs and goals. I look forward to talking with you and answering any questions you may have about the “No Surprises” Act and Good Faith Estimates.
