Fees & Payment
Explore What’s Next is a fee-for-service practice. EWN therapists do not take insurance directly. We are not participating providers on any insurance panels.* Even so, your health insurance contract may have what is called “Out of Network” benefits. The Out of Network benefit is especially designed to provide some form of reimbursement when a member wishes to see a professional who is not a participating provider. It allows the member to receive reimbursement for the cost of treatment from 30-100% after the deductible. What exactly the reimbursement amount will be is dependent of the insurance company, individual contracts and riders.
If you would like to investigate using your insurance in this way, our office will take care of all the inquiries to determine your out of network benefit. Then we will make all claim submissions for you. Please ask about this service when you call or during your initial consultation.
Fees range from $135.00 to $300.00 per session (50-60 minutes) depending on the service provided. There is no sliding scale. Payments are due at the time of your appointment.
Payment options are cash, paper check, MasterCard, Visa and Discover.
If it is not possible to pay for services at the time of your appointment, please discuss the situation with your therapist prior to your next scheduled appointment.
Declined checks or charges. There is a surcharge of $50.00 on any check, debit card or credit card declined or returned for insufficient funds.
