Free Consultation, Costs, Insurance Info for Therapy in Reno
At ERHA, we provide a no-cost, confidential initial phone consultation with a therapist in Reno. This consultation provides you an opportunity to openly share your current concerns and learn how we'll approach therapy in your case. We will also discuss the cost of therapy over the entire course of treatment.
INVESTING IN THERAPY: OUR FEES
In our effort to make our cost of therapy in Reno, NV accessible, we offer several options for couples, individuals, and families who find the standard therapy costs challenging. Specifically, we grant sliding fee reductions based on individual circumstances and needs. Session fees range from $140 to $210. We understand therapy is a considerable, albeit very wise investment in your and/or your family's well being and future. We will make sure you understand total treatment costs before you start therapy.
Effective January 1, 2022 under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, a ruling went into effect called the “No Surprises Act” which requires practitioners to provide a “Good Faith Estimate” about out-of-network care. At ERHA, we work from a place of transparency regarding the cost of therapy sessions and the therapist and client collaborate together on length of treatment and overall care.
We are contracted with a select number of insurance providers, including the Hometown Health Plan. Many insurance companies limit coverage for couples and the licensure of the therapist for reimbursement so make sure to verify your specific insurance plan for details. We do accept HSA or FSA (health or flex savings account) payment.
Insurance plans often exhibit variations in reimbursement rates, distinguishing between “in-network” and “out-of-network” providers. If we categorize as out-of-network providers, we will compile a comprehensive service record ("superbill") for you, smoothing the path for your reimbursement process. Furthermore, we encourage you to reach out to your plan administrator, generally accessible via the number on your insurance card, to obtain details regarding your mental healthcare reimbursement policies.
Below, we have outlined a series of questions to assist you in talking about coverage with your carrier:
- Do I qualify for mental health insurance benefits?
- Does my plan cover services for relationship/marriage issues?
- Have I met my deductible?
- How many sessions per year does my health insurance allow?
- What coverage does my plan offer per therapy session, and what will be my out-of-pocket expense?
- Does my primary care physician need to approve the therapy sessions?
We can discuss this with you during the free consultation call with one of our therapists in Reno.
We accommodate a range of payment methods for your convenience, including cash, check, Zelle, debit, and major credit cards. Please be aware that payment is due at the time of service unless you have arranged a different agreement.
Your scheduled time is reserved exclusively for you. In the event of cancellation we need adequate time to offer the spot to clients on our waiting list. We respectfully require a minimum of 48 hours' notice if you intend to cancel a session for any reason. This policy exists to enable us to manage our schedule effectively, ensuring that we can accommodate all clients. If a session is missed without adequate notice, we will charge the full cost of the session. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
