A Good Faith Estimate (GFE) is the estimated cost of services provided. At this time, GFEs are required for clients who either don't have insurance or don't plan to submit for insurance reimbursement. Actual charges may differ based on changes in the frequency or duration of treatment or modalities utilized. The client has the right to initiate the patient-provider dispute resolution process if the actual bill substantially exceeds the GFE. The GFE is not a contract and does not obligate the client to obtain the services from the provider identified in the estimate.
All clients can plan to attend one 60-minute intake session at a cost of $240.
Depending on the service you seek, you can expect to pay:
$200 for each 45-50-minute session. At a frequency of once a week or every other week for 52 weeks, your total will be $10,400-per-year for weekly sessions or $5,200-per-year for every other week sessions.
$250 for each 60-minute session. At a frequency of once a week or every other week for 52 weeks, your total will be $13,000-per-year for weekly sessions or $6,500-per-year for every other week sessions.
