Reduced Fee Options
We understand that some individuals greatly desire counseling services however financial circumstances pose an obstacle. In order to alleviate financial barriers, Simplicity Psychotherapy offers several options for reduced fee services. These options include low cost services provided by interns and pre-licensed therapists and opportunities for fee reduction with fully licensed therapists.
Fully licensed therapists offer a predetermined number of reduced fee slots to assist those who are unable to afford the full rate for the most appropriate service.
Interns offer sliding scale services through our Counselor Intern Program. Follow the link to learn more about working with a counselor intern.
Please bear in mind that therapy is not only a process but an investment in your health and well being to be prioritized accordingly.
To limit the control that insurance companies have over your services, we have chosen not to join insurance panels. When receiving services from a fully licensed professional, you retain the option to submit Out of Network claims to your insurance company for reimbursement. You therapist can provide necessary documentation to submit claims upon request. Many clients have successfully submitted Superbills and obtain reimbursement from their insurance companies.
Please note: All services provided by Rayvene Whatley LPC may be eligible for reimbursement. Services provided by provisionally licensed therapist (LAPC) may be reimbursable dependent upon terms set by your insurance carrier and health plan. Services provided by counselor interns and pre-licensed therapists are not eligible for reimbursement.
Honestly, many clients come in expecting to use their insurance and then OPT NOT to use insurance by their personal choice. It is not, I repeat, it is NOT our position to discourage you from using your benefits. If you would like to use insurance, please verify your out of network benefits with your insurance company.
Services may be covered all or in part by your health insurance. The risks and benefits of filing insurance may be discussed during the initial consultation. Please check your coverage carefully to verify behavioral health coverage and associated benefits. Below are a few helpful questions:
Do I have behavioral health insurance benefits?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
What percentage will insurance pay for an out-of-network provider?
If you would like to use your insurance benefits and your insurance company DOES NOT allow use of out of network providers, we can assist you with locating another therapist who meets your clinical needs and accepts your insurance. Ultimately, the goal is to provide you with the services that you need in a manner that accommodates your lifestyle.
Note: Superbills are not provided for couples counseling or assessment services.
24 hour notice is required for all cancellations. Clients who fail to provide proper notice of cancellation will be required to pay the full fee of the missed session. New appointments may not be scheduled until a negative balance is resolved. Therapy consultations cancelled without proper notice incur a full session fee when rescheduled. All consultations are rescheduled at the discretion of the therapist.

You have the right
to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription medications, equipment, and hospital fees.
Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least one business day before your medical service or item.You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
