Psychotherapy is an important investment in your health and wellness. Navigating insurance can be challenging that’s why we offer a complimentary phone call to discuss your needs, goals for therapy, your preferences, and your insurance coverage questions. We accept checks, debit and credit cards, including flexible spending accounts (FSA) and health savings accounts (HSA).
Do you accept insurance?
All of our therapists are in-network with:
All Aetna plans
Aetna Student Health (Columbia University, Pace University, Fordham University, Fashion Institute of Technology)
United Healthcare Student Resources (New School Students Only)
What if I don’t have Aetna or not a New School Student?
If you have a different insurance plan we can help you figure out if you have out-of-network coverage and help you file with your insurance company for reimbursement. We are out-of-network providers for most other insurance plans including and can provide you with all the documentation you need to seek reimbursement from your insurance company. Please call us with any questions about payment and fees.
Here is a list of questions to ask your insurance about out-of-network coverage and benefits:
Calling your insurance plan about out-of-network plan questions.
You can find out what your insurance plan covers by reaching out to your insurance provider by calling the number on the back of your insurance card. Here are some questions to ask:
Do I have out-of-network benefits for mental health/behavioral health services?
Do I have a deductible for out-of-network mental health/behavioral health services? How much is it? What’s the remainder on my deductible?
What is the reimbursement rate for mental health/behavioral health services? (The usual rate of reimbursement is 50%-80% e.g. if the insurance says 80% it means they cover 80% and you are responsible for 20% of the cost after any deductible is met).
If your insurance plan does not have out-of-network coverage, then it won’t cover your visits.
You can also use your flexible spending account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA) to pay for visits as well.
Good Faith Estimate Notice
Notice to clients and prospective clients:
Under the law, health care providers need to give clients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.
You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service, or at any time during treatment.
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.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, or how to dispute a bill, see your Estimate, or visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
