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 we will get a chance to strategize how to move you forward! If I don’t answer, please leave a message, as I’m often in session. Also, you can send the form below including a couple of good times I can reach you by phone. I will typically return your call within 48 business hours, and I see clients Monday-Thursday 10:00am-5:00pm. Don’t forget to include your best phone number!
Fees and Insurance Accepted (Caveat: You must check if telehealth is covered!)
- Blue Cross Blue Shield (I do NOT accept Blue Value.)
Your first appointment is $175.00, and lasts an hour. Follow up sessions are $125/per 50-55 minutes. Accepted payment is cash or most major credit cards at the start of 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. Please note that insurance companies do not typically cover couples counseling, as they do not consider it medically necessary. The fee for this service is $160/50 minute session. Extended session charged on half hour basis. The prices stated here comply with the “No Surprises Act” passed in 2021 to insure clients are aware of the costs of services prior to receiving them.
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 AND/OR coinsurance will be for an outpatient mental health visit.” Ask if it covers telehealth. 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.
If you leave contact information on this form, I will not share it. Once a client is under my care, their personal health information is kept private, in accordance with HIPAA standards. Page Rutledge is the privacy officer for this site.
