The fee for service is $200.00 per individual/conjoint therapy session. Individual Sessions and conjoint (marital/family) sessions are approximately 50 minutes in length.
It is possible to schedule a longer session for EMDR. The fee for service is $300.00 for a 75 minute EMDR session.
I do not charge for short email correspondences or phone-calls that are up to 20 minutes long.
Additional services, such as writing letters on your behalf and participating in IEPs are charged for at the rate of $200.00 per hour.
Fees are payable by cash, check, credit/debit card , Zelle ( [email protected]) or PayPal (https://paypal.me/anatfein?locale.x=en_US), at the time the services are rendered. A monthly payment option is available upon request.
I do not work directly with insurance companies, nor am I contracted with any companies as part of their Employee Assistance Program (EAP). However, if you have a PPO insurance (Preferred Provider Organization), my monthly receipt will include all the codes necessary for reimbursement as an out of network provider. *
You can call your insurance company ahead of scheduling, to inquire about its reimbursement policies and rates. You may provide your insurance with the following information as needed:
Anat Fein, MA, LMFT CA License MFC 47240 NPI #: 1225157969 EIN # 27-028041
*Please note that family/couple’s therapy is usually not reimbursable, since its focus is non-clinical in nature. Conjoin sessions that are conducted as part of individual therapy may be eligible for reimbursement.
Beginning September 1st, 2022, I will pause services for any clients who owe two months’ worth of therapy (two unpaid consecutive monthly invoices).
Although payment is due upon receipt of each invoice, I will still allow a 30 day grace period from the invoice date. If payment has not been made by the time the next invoice is sent, I will not schedule additional sessions.
Once payments are made, I will be happy to resume sessions. However, I cannot promise the previous timeslot will remain available, as I have a waiting list of clients requesting to be seen.
I am always happy to work out a payment plan with those who have fallen behind, and provide monthly receipts for insurance reimbursement.
The No Surprises Act
Good Faith Estimate Notice
Under the law, patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance, have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services, explaining how much their medical and mental health care will cost.
You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
