The Oaks Life Center has a fee structure for everyone. As a training agency, we can also offer a wide range of fees without compromising client care. Licensed professionals and interns work together to provide the best possible care for each client.
We offer reduced fee counseling starting at $60.00/hour – around the same amount of a typical copay for mental health services. Fees are based on the experience level of the clinician. Rates for senior clinicians start at $90.00/session. We also offer groups and classes that are another cost-efficient way to get the help you are looking for.
It is your responsibility to verify with your insurance carrier that our group is In Network. If you decide to use your insurance, our billing office will submit a claim to your insurance carrier. When the claim is processed, your insurance company will send you an Explanation of Benefits (EOB). Please note that the name of the provider on the EOB will be The Oaks Life Center. For covered services, you will be responsible for anything that is considered patient responsibility, including deductible, co-insurance, etc. If you have any questions about your benefits, please contact your insurance provider.
When you privately pay for your mental health care, no diagnosis is required and your confidentiality is assured. Cost for care ranges from $90 to $125 per session. We also have LCSW and LPC interns who can accept patients at a reduced fee of $60 to $75.00. Weekly sessions are often preferred, but meeting less frequently can be economical and ultimately as beneficial. When you call The Oaks Life Center for an appointment, we will help you find the therapist at an appropriate rate for your situation.
Out-of-Network means we are one of these two things:
1.NOT contracted with your insurance company and do not accept your insurance plan. If you are “Out-Of-Network” we are happy to provide you with a “Superbill” receipt to give to your insurance company for reimbursement. Many insurance companies will reimburse 50-80% for out of network providers. You are required to pay the session fee up front in full.
2. We are providers, just not with your particular plan. You will have a deductible to meet before your insurance plan will pay us. We will still accept the insurance company’s discounted provider rate. This allows you to still access quality services with the counselor of your choice. Please contact your insurance company for details as each carrier’s amount of reimbursement may vary by plan.
Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. We are able to provide services using the following insurance plans, however within each Insurance company are a variety of plans with special provider lists.
Reduced fee services are available on a limited, case-by case basis. You will be charged the same amount as everyone else, but the fees may then be discounted according to need.
You will be responsible for ALL co-pays, deductibles and non-covered services. We accept all major credit cards and cash. We do request we keep a credit card on file and, with your permission, will use it to pay what the insurance doesn’t cover.
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session. Your insurance will not reimburse you for missed appointments.
