Fees & Insurance

FOLSOM COUNSELING FEES

I charge $200 per session for individual and couples therapy. How often we meet following our initial session will depend on your current needs and goals. Generally speaking, therapy is most effective when you make the commitment to weekly sessions. You may pay for your sessions by Venmo (my user name is @Dr-Jennifer-Ballerini) or PayPal.

If you choose to use Venmo, for your own privacy, please mark the transaction as "private," don't friend me on the app, and please don't identify it as "therapy" or "counseling" in the "What's it for" box (the date or a fun emoji are good options instead).

If you choose to use PayPal, for your own privacy, please mark the box for "friends and family" vs. "paying for an item"/purchase protection when paying. Please don't identify it as "therapy" or "counseling" in the note (the date or a fun emoji are good options instead).


INSURANCE & HSAs

Please know that I am not an in-network provider for any HMO health insurance. If you have insurance coverage through a PPO plan, you likely will be reimbursed for a percentage of the fees for our sessions together. I will be happy to prepare a monthly statement for you to submit to your PPO health insurance plan or Health Savings Account for reimbursement.

If you choose to use your insurance, I recommend that you ask your insurer the following questions about your benefits:

  • Am I covered for 50-minute psychotherapy sessions (CPT code 90834) for an out-of-network provider?
  • How many sessions per year does my plan cover?
  • What is my deductible and have I met it? Once I've met it, what percentage will my insurance cover of my sessions with my therapist?

CANCELLATION FEES

You will be charged for any sessions you miss with less than 24 hours notice. Insurance companies will not cover missed sessions/late cancellations.
