Fees

Below you will find current fees for each provider.

At this time only Dr. Matthews is able to accept health insurance. Our other providers use a fee-for-service model, which requires payment of fees at the time the service is provided. 

*As of August 2021 Dr. Matthews is participating with Advekit, a service which helps make therapy more affordable by simplifying the process of using out-of-network benefits. If you are interested in meeting with Dr. Matthews, but he is out-of-network with your insurance, you can check here to see if you could use out-of-network benefits to do so. If so, you do not pay the full fee, nor do you have to submit claims or wait for reimbursement.

If you are not using health insurance, a monthly statement may be provided for you to seek out-of-network reimbursement. Many plans offer out-of-network benefits, which could help you to be reimbursed for some of your costs. Contact your insurance company prior to receiving services to verify.

All fees, including copays or co-insurance, are due at the time of service. Matthews Counseling accepts a number of different payment methods for convenience. Your provider will discuss this with you prior to your first visit.

Providers may have some ability to offer a reduced fee in the event of financial need (for clients not using insurance benefits). Please ask your provider about availability.
