We accept several major health insurance carriers and bill them according to your plan. Please check with your insurance company for any out-of-pocket costs you may be responsible for, and for any other limitations related to your mental health benefits. We check your mental health benefits for you during the onboarding process, and provide as much information regarding your benefits as we can, but we highly recommend you check on your mental health insurance benefits yourself as well. Self-pay is also available if you do not have or do not want to use health insurance. Please contact us for self-pay pricing or any questions you may have related to your health insurance. We are happy to help!
