Fees Over the past 20 years Dr Bob has gotten off all insurance panels, and he provides documentation for you to file if your policy has Outside-Of-Network benefits. He accepts both Outside of Network and Health Savings Account benefits. Please check to be sure of your policy’s OON benefits and what the Deductible is. He accepts only checks, cash, or Venmo, no credit or debit cards. Individual sessions are 45 minutes, and first-session fee is nearly always $125, paid when you see him. A fee for subsequent sessions is agreed upon during the second session, usually $125, which is about half of what he charged in his previous, corporate psychology setting. Group fee is usually $65-$75 a week, also sliding down when necessary/appropriate, paid monthly at the beginning of the month.
His Sliding Fee Scale goes both up and down. If the client has one or more well established streams of professional-level income &/or realty or other significant funds or investments, we will negotiate and agree on a somewhat higher fee. If the client is the proverbial starving grad student with 3 kids, and if Dr Bob is the “right” therapist for the job, the fee can be very small, perhaps $25.- $45.
