Fees

The fee for service is $150 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 $200 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 $150.00 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.

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 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:

Conjoin sessions that are conducted as part of individual therapy may be eligible for reimbursement.


The No Surprises Act 

The No Surprises Act, effective January 2022,  requires providers to inform their uninsured and private pay patients that they have a right to a “Good Faith Estimate” to help them estimate the expected charges they may be billed.

 

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.
