What happens next when you decide to start therapy? We can begin to figure that out in one free 20 minute phone call. Reach out to me. I will answer insurance and cost questions, and you will get a chance to see if you think we are a good fit. If I don’t answer, please leave a message, as I’m often in session. Also, you can send the form below, and include a couple of good times to reach you by phone. I will typically return your call within 48 business hours. Don’t forget to include your phone number!
Fees and Insurance Accepted
- Blue Cross Blue Shield (most plans–there are many)
Your first appointment is $150.00, and lasts an hour. Follow up sessions are $100/per 50 minutes. Payment is cash or most major credit cards at the appointment. You may also submit out-of-network claims directly to your insurance company for potential reimbursement. I will provide a statement once a month for this purpose if requested.
It is your responsibility to know your copay and what your individual policy covers. Coverage varies even within the same company or provider, and I cannot guarantee that your insurer will provide coverage. You need to call and ask them. Here’s how:
“Please tell me what my copay OR coinsurance will be for an outpatient mental health visit.” Find out if you have a deductible to meet. Ask them whether or not I am in network when you call. When you ask them to check, say to look for Jerry Rutledge, because that is how insurance companies have me listed (Jerry is my first name). That will help them give you a more accurate answer.
