Therapy sessions are 50 minutes long and my fee is $120.00.  

I accept Beacon Partnership insurance. 

Please make sure to notify me of any changes to your insurance coverage as soon as possible to avoid out of pocket expenses.  When possible, I will provide assistance in verifying insurance information, and obtaining information from your insurance provider.Before deciding to use your health insurance benefits for therapy, you should be aware of the following:

In order for me to bill insurance, some of your personal information must be shared with the insurance company to facilitate payment. This information includes your dates of treatment and behavioral health diagnosis. In rare instances, treatment summaries may be requested by your insurance company. Depending on your circumstances, you may not want this type of information disclosed to an outside party, therefore you should give this decision careful consideration.

Should you decide to use your health insurance benefits,  please check your coverage carefully before your first session by asking  the following questions:  

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
  • What is my deductible per year and has it been met yet?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?  Is there a limit?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Will I need to pay a co-pay for my office visits?

Payment is expected at the time of your appointment.   If you are not using Beacon insurance (co-pay is 0), forms of payment accepted are:  cash, check*, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Venmo, and PayPal**.   Checks should be made out to Ruth Fankushen, LMFT.

*Please note: There is a $10 fee for all returned checks.
