Professional Fees and Policies

 

 

Professional Fees

  • Fees for our services fall within the usual, reasonable, and customary charges for mental health providers in northern New Jersey.  The fees vary depending on the type of service that is being requested (in-office or telehealth), as well as the therapist that you are looking to meet with.  Please feel free to call us to discuss these fees in more detail.
    • Please note that Hemisha only takes adult clients and does not provide services to children and/or adolescents. John only takes adolescent and adult clients and does not provide services to children.
  • We accept cash, check and all major credit cards as forms of payment. Payment is due on the day that services are rendered. There is an additional $35 fee for checks that are returned for any reason.
  • Payments for Hemisha and John can be taken care of in the office, or you can pay directly from this website, using the “Pay” tab located at the top of the page.  Just be mindful to click the corresponding tab for your particular individual therapist.

Insurance

Please note that we are out-of-network providers.  In other words, we currently do not accept insurance plans, which means clients cover the initial costs of their therapy sessions. 

Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, however, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.

 We recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:

  1. Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
  2. Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
  3. Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
  4. Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?

To assist with seeking reimbursement from your insurance provider, we will provide you with an itemized receipt, which outlines how much you paid for the session and your clinical diagnosis.  The latter information is needed by the insurance companies for reimbursement purposes.   In addition, we will be more than happy to provide you with any additional information that your insurance provider may ask of you with regard to your therapy sessions.

Cancellation Policy

If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure to cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you will be charged for the full rate of the session.  Also, please be advised that, if a client fails to attend two or more appointments with no prior notice, we reserve the right to terminate services.

Any Other Questions

Please contact us for any additional questions you may have. We look forward to hearing from you! ~ Hemisha Patel Urgola, PsyD & John Urgola, MA, LPC
