We will assist in all matters with insurance.
We wish we could offer therapy for free. The reality is that our staff is highly trained and dedicated. Fortunately, insurance companies are paying attention to the value therapists provide, and we have found a few ways to help you make the best of your benefits.
Why We are Out of Network:
We are one of the only group practices in New Jersey that focuses on Eating Disorder Recovery. Due to the complexity of these disorders, more investment is required for effective treatment.
We strive to make sure you receive highly trained, ethical, and research-based support as you make progress toward your goal each week. We take pride in our work. Insurance, however, can stop us from being our best. They would require us to focus primarily on their opinion about your mental health, without even knowing what’s going on in your life! This causes privacy issues and concerns about outside opinions interfering with our professional ethics. With expertise and advanced certifications in relationships with food, as well as co-occurring experiences such as anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and depression, we’re committed to quality care without interruption or interference.
What are your fees?
Please understand that all fees are commensurate with the expertise and required dedication towards our specialties, including our level of commitment and education (PhD, LCSW, CEDS, etc.). As specialists, our fees are in line with the current trends in cost throughout the tri-state area. .
There are multiple ways to reduce the cost!
As out-of-network providers, we aim to make therapy affordable. There are multiple ways you can use your health insurance benefits without compromising the quality of your care. We bill to your out-of-network benefits, which allows for proper treatment as we are able to focus on you. This also prevents long calls with insurance provider representatives that include judgement from someone who doesn’t know you, your privacy concerns, or the type of care that aligns with your needs.
