Good Faith Estimate
Beginning on January 1, 2022, the No Surprises Act (H.R. 133) went into effect. This requires health care providers (therapists) to provide clients a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) based on information known at that time, detailing expected costs for services.
While it is not possible for a psychotherapist to know, in advance, how many sessions may be necessary or appropriate for you, the chart below provides a general estimate. Your total cost of services will depend upon the number of sessions you attend, your individual circumstances, and the type and amount of services that are provided to you. This estimate is NOT a contract or obligation to participate in treatment.
Some clients are happy to end treatment when they feel better, whereas others feel more comfortable titrating down from weekly to bi-monthly sessions. Despite a GFE and timelines being discussed, the client can end therapy at any time.
I will provide you with a GFE verbally during your free consultation, in writing prior to your first appointment, and upon request at any time during treatment.
Good Faith Estimate Example for Individual Clients
1 Week of Service = $180
13 Weeks of Service (Approx. 3 Months) = $2340
26 Weeks of Service (Approx. 6 Months) = $4680
39 Weeks of Service (Approx. 9 Months) = $7020
52 Weeks of Service (Approx. 12 Months) = $9360
This example provides a general snapshot of expected financial costs for 12 months. However, the duration and frequency of treatment will vary on an individual basis. I am happy to discuss this further if you have any questions at all.
