Our Sevices: Fees & Insurance


Fees vary by the type of service requested, whether you have insurance coverage, and your ability to pay. We typically provide an initial introductory session to learn how we can help, and determine your insurance coverage and fees. If we are not the right provider for your needs, we do not charge for this session and will offer you a referral.


As a courtesy to our patients, we take care of insurance billing and collection. This allows us to reduce patients’ out-of-pocket fees, and maintain confidentiality as we use secure, HIPAA compliant electronic billing. It also allows us to work with the payers’ Case Managers and Medical Directors to assure our patients receive all necessary services.

Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance. We are contracted with most of the major insurance companies including:

  • Medicare
  • Beacon Options / Value Options, includes Kaiser members
  • Magellan
  • HealthNet HMO / MHN

... and we are able to get payment from or make special arrangements with:

  • Anthem / Blue Cross of CA
  • Aetna
  • United Healthcare / Optum / UBH (United Behavioral Health)
  • and other insurance carriers

If you request services from us, we will check your insurance coverage:

  • Do you have mental health insurance benefits?
  • What is your deductible?
  • What portion of your deductible has not yet been met?
  • Are there any limits to the number of sessions per year your health insurance allows?
  • What is the coverage amount and out-of-pocket payment amount per session?
  • Is approval required from your primary care physician or the payer's case manager?
  • Does your plan cover individual therapy and psychiatric medication management at the same time?
  • Will your plan cover out-of-network group therapy and medication management at the same time as in-network individual therapy (for DBT treatment)?

All major credit cards, cash, check, and PayPal are accepted for payment.
