Fees

To keep my fees as low as possible, I do not have office staff to schedule appointments, file insurance claims or follow up with billing.  Payment in full is due at the end of each session unless insurance reimbursement has been verified prior to the session (see below).  I cannot guarantee payment in part or in full by any insurance company or other third party, and therefore you are ultimately responsible for any and all charges you incur.  I accept cash, local checks (payable to Alice Hoag), credit cards, debit cards (including FSA/HRA/HSA), and Online Member Payments.  Counseling fees are considered tax-deductible medical expenses.

 

Services eligible for insurance reimbursement (see "Insurance" page):

Individual, couples or family therapy:

  • Initial Diagnostic Interview for first-time clients @ $135/session, payable in full at time of booking

  • 60-minute session for an established client @ $135/session

You will need to check with your insurance company to determine your co-pay or co-insurance amount.  Your first session is payable in full so I can file your claim and determine what they will actually cover.
