|Initial Visit/Intake:||50 minutes||$60.00|
|Individual or Couples’ session:||50 minutes||$40.00|
This includes calls between therapist and clients as well as calls to other professionals involved in the treatment (i.e., psychiatrist, guardian, etc.). The fees are based upon the length of the conversation. If a conversation lasts longer than 15 minutes, it will be charged as a full counseling session (pricing based upon clinician’s rates).
Methods of Payment Accepted
Payment may be made by cash, check, or credit card. Visa, MasterCard, Discover and Amex cards are accepted. Flexible Spending/Health Savings accounts are also accepted. Payment is expected at the time of your session. There is a $35.00 fee for returned checks.
The Fine Print:
It is understandable that appointments need to be canceled and rescheduled on occasion. We ask that you give at least 24 hours advance notice to your therapist when canceling or changing your appointment time. If cancellations or changes are made with less than 24 hours notice, you will be charged a fee of $50.
Documentation and Reports
Requests for the creation of reports, assessments, treatment summaries, letters, or other materials are billed based upon clinician’s hourly rates. In some cases, we are not able to honor every request for documentation or reports.
It is not the mission of Social House Wellness Center to speak on behalf of our clients in current or potential court proceedings. Though if subpoenaed there is a $1500 retainer fee and hourly fee (billed based upon clinician’s rates) for time spent preparing for court and/or time in court, along with fees for copies. See Counseling Agreement for details.
Benefits of Private Pay
Private paying clients choose not to involve insurance companies in their mental health care. Their counseling is not limited by a diagnosis, treatment plan, or session limits that health insurance companies mandate. Often, insurance companies limit the number of sessions and even the type of therapy they will cover.
In order to obtain reimbursement from your insurance company, a mental health diagnosis must be made. This becomes a part of your permanent health care record and the insurance company can review all of your records at their discretion.
By paying privately or out of pocket, we can assure private pay clients the highest degree of privacy, flexibility and control of their mental health and records that is allowed by Texas state law. We will work collaboratively to decide how often you would like to attend therapy and you decide what you want to focus on. You have control over your mental health care.
Insurance for Mental Health
Social House Wellness Center accepts most insurance plans through Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and United Healthcare. We will typically contact insurance companies to make sure we are in-network. However, you are ultimately responsible for checking with your insurance about coverage.
How much you will pay depends on your insurance plan, most of the time you will pay your co-pay. However, if you haven’t met your deductible you will owe a contracted rate (which is cheaper than the out-of-pocket rate). We can not check ahead of time to see if you have met your deductible. You are the only one allowed to ask your insurance if you have met your deductible.
Unfortunately, insurance companies will not recognize services provided by LPC-Associates and LPC masters-level counseling interns, however these services are offered at a discounted rate.
