Professional Fees

Basset Psychological Services’ goal is to provide a cost-effective resource to the community while at the same time providing the highest quality psychological evaluation and intervention services to our clients.  All fees are due at the time of the appointment. You can pay by cash, check, or credit card.

**If you become involved in legal proceedings that require Basset's participation, you will be expected to pay for the professional's time even if a therapist is called to testify by another party. These fees must be received in advance of any document preparation or court appearances. This charge also applies to any documentation prepared for the court including letters and treatment summaries. Please note that your therapist will not go to court voluntarily.

Basset does not accept Medicare, Medicaid, or insurance payment for several reasons.  Accepting insurance means insurance companies are able to access your private medical history, including diagnosis and treatment records.  We believe that your mental health history should not be anyone’s business but your own.  Additionally, insurance companies can dictate how often, for how long, and what types of treatment you may receive.  We believe that decision is best made by the client and psychologist working together.      

Just because we do not accept insurance does not mean you cannot use your coverage.  For individuals who would like to use their mental health insurance, we can provide you with a Superbill at the end of the month.  To find out what your insurance company will reimburse, ask them about your "Out-of-Network Mental Health Benefits.”
