At Pinellas Psychology Associates, we design our services for people who choose not to rely on the limitations of services dictated by insurance companies. In exchange for the luxury of having services available in a way that best meets your needs, we do not have contracts with insurance companies. We find that we are able to better accommodate your personal needs and have more scheduling flexibility without limitations imposed by insurance.
Our practice philosophy is that we truly value your privacy and confidentiality. When mental health providers bill insurance companies, they are required to list a diagnosis as a reason for your visit. We want you to have the ability to choose whether or not you want to share this type of information with your insurance company. Often insurance companies dictate the length and type of treatment that fits into your health benefit package, which is not always what is best for our clients. As a fee-for-service practice, we prefer to dedicate our time and attention to our clients rather than spending time and resources negotiating with insurance companies.
We are happy to provide you with receipts and documentation to submit to your insurance carrier for reimbursement if you choose. Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. We encourage you to review your coverage carefully, and consult with your own insurance provider for more information. If you are interested in using your insurance benefits directly, we recommend that you seek in-network services with your insurance company.
How much will counseling cost?
For counseling to be effective, it does require a commitment of both time and finances. In general, session fees tend to range from $150-$225 per 55-minute session is based on therapist education, specialty level and years of experience. We also offer the opportunity for longer 90-minute sessions when needed, or more frequent visits as requested during times of stress or crisis.
Our goal is to provide services to you in a manner that best meets your needs. We offer flexibility to best accommodate you when you need support. Our practice model is that we offer a well-rounded approach to help you meet your goals.
We certainly understand that there are many things to consider when choosing a practice to help you achieve your goals. If you have questions about how we can help, connect with us using our contact form or call us today at 727-379-1982 to see how we can be of service to you.
