Policies and FAQ

How do I contact you?

Please complete this contact form to reach me. We can schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation to discuss your needs and whether we should proceed with scheduling an initial visit.

What is the CBT-I treatment process?

If based on the phone consultation we have agreed to move forward, we will schedule an initial, 90-minute session. I will provide you with some questionnaires to complete via the patient portal prior to the appointment, to help determine your needs. The purpose of the initial assessment session is to evaluate what sort of problems you are experiencing with your sleep and to discuss treatment options. The assessment is quite important, as there are many sleep disorders that can be hidden and may in fact be the underlying problem. Following the initial session, treatment consists of 50-minute sessions. Typically, CBT-I lasts for 6-8 sessions, including the initial 90-minute session.

What are your rates?

The fee for the initial, 90-minute session is $300. Following this, 50-minute sessions are $200. Payment is due at the time of service, and you may pay with a credit card via the patient portal. Keep in mind that CBT-I is a specialized treatment, and that it normally lasts for only 6-8 sessions, including the initial 90-minute assessment.

Do you accept insurance?

I do not accept insurance, and am considered an out-of-network provider. However, I am happy to provide you with a "superbill" that you can submit to your insurance plan for reimbursement. I encourage you to contact your insurance plan to ask whether they will reimburse you for out-of-network mental health treatment.

You will need the following billing codes to provide to your insurance company if you are requesting reimbursement:

- 90791 (95): Initial psychiatric diagnostic evaluation via video. This only applies to the first session.
- 90834 (95): 45-minute video session.
- 90832 (95): 30-minute video session. (It is rare that we would meet for only 30 minutes.)

Questions to ask your insurance company

1. Does my plan cover mental health services with an out-of-network provider?
2. If so, what is the rate of reimbursement?
3. Is there a deductible, and has it been met?
4. Does my plan cover telehealth services?

What if I have Medicare?

Unfortunately, due to certain regulations I am unable to accept clients who have Medicare at this time, even if you do not plan to use your Medicare for the services.
