Policies

  • Session Rates:

Session rates range from $40- $350, depending on a variety of factors including your provider, insurance plan etc. Please call us for an estimate of your cost.

    • Wellness Plan- We designed a membership plan that allows you to supplement insurance or make the variety of services that we offer more affordable to others by offering a discount for each service.
    • Often patients would benefit by coming in 1x a week to 2x monthly for treatments that help support the mind and body's vitality/ ability to heal itself.   
    • Ask us about our welness plan options and how they  can benefit you.
  • Missed Appointments and/or Cancellations

    Our policy is as follows:

    Out of respect for our practitioners and other clients, all appointments require 24-hours notice for cancellation. .
    • Cancellations provided with less than 24-hours business hours notice will be subject to a fee.
    • Cancellation calls are taken between 9 AM and 5 PM Monday through Thursday, excluding New Years Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day
    • Monday appointments must be canceled before 5 PM on the previous Thursday.

  • Insurance
    • Please contact us to see if we accept your insurance. Please be aware that each provider with In Touch Counseling Services may be networked with different insurance plans.
    • All we are able to do with insurances is verify that you have insurance, tell you about a copay or about possible deductible.  If you would like more specific information, you can contact your insurance provider directly.
    • It is a client’s responsibility to understand the limitations of their mental health insurance benefits. Not all services are covered and clients may have a deductible to reach, prior to receiving coverage for services. Not all diagnoses are covered by every insurance plan. If a client’s insurance provider fails to pay for services rendered, the balance of unpaid session fees becomes the client’s responsibility. We encourage you to check your policy yourself to find out all of the information you need to know about your potential costs.
    • At this time we are not currently contracted with any State and/or Federal insurance programs, such as Apple Health, Medicare/Medicaid, etc.

    • Most insurance companies do not pay for traditional couples counseling where the relationships is the intended focus or client.  
    • If you would prefer to use your insurance for marriage counseling/couples counseling, one partner must be the identified patient and recieve a diagnosis.  This diagnosis and the impact on the relationship is the focus of treatment, not the relationship.
