Reid Psychology Group and its clinicians are in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield and Harvard Pilgrim health insurance. If you have health insurance with a company other than Blue Cross Blue Shield or Harvard Pilgrim, please contact your insurance provider to determine out of network benefits. For those with no out-of-network benefits or who choose not to use their mental health insurance benefits, a private self-pay arrangement can be made. Reduced fee services are available on a limited basis. Please call to further discuss these options.
If you would like to use your insurance, whether BCBS, HP, or out-of-network, we are happy to verify your benefits with insurance ahead of time. While we suggest that you also contact your insurance company to get information about your benefits, we understand that the process can be overwhelming and confusing and provide this service regardless of your decision to continue working with a Reid Psychology Group therapist.
If we are not in-network with your insurance, we will assist you with the necessary out-of-network billing paperwork to submit to your insurer for reimbursement.
- Initial intake session - $250
- Individual therapy - $200
- Couples therapy - $225
Payments for co-pays, deductibles, and full session fees are expected at time of service and can be made in cash or check.
Once an appointment has been scheduled you will be expected to pay for it unless you provide 24-hours advance notice of cancellation. It is important to note that your insurance will not provide coverage for late cancellations and that you will be responsible for the full amount. A missed appointment is a loss for everyone and may impact the effectiveness of your therapy.
What about confidentiality?
Psychology services are confidential, which means that most information you share with us will be kept private. Information can be released with your written permission (or parent's permission for children under 18) to another doctor, teachers, family members, or other people you designate. There are a few situations in which therapists are required by law to break confidentiality in order to protect people. If a therapist learns that someone is planning to seriously injure himself/herself or someone else, or gains information about possible child or elder abuse that is currently happening, the therapist has to tell authorities to keep people safe. Only information about these risky situations needs to be disclosed, and we will not share unnecessary information with outside parties. If you are discussing something that might require a therapist to talk to other authorities (i.e. hospital or safety services), then the therapist will discuss this with you. Therapists will go over the parameters of confidentiality in the first session, and this information will also be provided in written format.
