Updated Fees 2021
As of 06/2021, for folks who do not have insurance, my fee schedule will operate on a tier system. I believe in creating space where folks who cannot afford to pay are not penalized or unable to access therapy. In order for me to hold space for some folks who cannot pay or who need to be drastically reduced fees (I keep 5 such spots at any given time), the following is the tier system.
1: Ability to Give Back and Redistribute Funds
This tier is for folks who have financial means and can afford to buffer the costs for those in financial hardship. Payment at full tier means that I can sustain this work and offer deep discounts when people are in financial straits.
Intake: $150 Each 50-Min Session after: $125
2. Tier 2
This tier is for folks who can afford moderate pricing for therapy services and may or may not have insurance that they aren’t using.
Intake: $125 Each 50-Min Session After: $100
3. Tier 3
This tier is for folks who are employed, ideally making a living wage, and can afford to pay for services out of pocket but cannot afford either of the above options.
Intake: $90 Each 50- Session: $75
I am currently in-network with the following insurance companies. As of 6/11/2021, Please be aware I am no longer planning to accept BC/BS or Bluecare. My Bluecare contract terminates 01/01/2022.
- Behavioral Health Systems
- American Behavioral
- Optum/United Healthcare
Please note, being in-network with an insurance company does not mean they will reimburse session fees as required for payment. Any deductibles and benefits to be paid are the responsibility of the patient.
If I am not currently credentialed with your network, please contact me at Christina@ChristinaRPerkinsLCSW.com so that we can discuss filing an out of network claim or so that I can consider applying for that network. You can choose NOT to use your insurance benefits UNLESS you have Bluecare or any other state funded medicaid (Amerigroup or UHC-Community Plan), then you must file an insurance benefit.
Forms of Payment
Cash, Check, Credit/Debit cards (via Square), FSA, HSA
