Terms to be familiar with

  • Sliding Scale Therapy: Priced by each person’s income and dependents.
  • Out-of-Network Provider: Out of Network implies that the therapist is not “in-network” with your insurance company. Based on your specific plan, or how much you have spent on healthcare expenses otherwise, the insurance company will pay you money back after your sessions to help your work with your therapist become more affordable for you.
  • In-Network Provider: The therapist is in your insurance company’s database, or they have applied and been “approved” by your insurance company. You will owe a “co-pay” at the time of your session. This can range between $15-85 (sometimes even more or even less). Your insurance company will pay your therapist the rest of what the insurance company deems a reasonable rate for the service provided.
