Rates $150 per 50-minute session
Longer sessions may be recommended by Mr. Nagel or requested by an individual client or a couple. For example, 100-minute sessions for couples therapy are sometimes recommended. The rates for these extended sessions will be based on the usual therapeutic session rate. Mr. Nagel's fees are based on his 35+ years as an experienced psychotherapist who is dedicated to providing high quality services and his enduring commitment to actively participate in ongoing advanced clinical skills training. Therapy for individuals or couples is an investment in your important relationships and personal well-being.
I operate on a fee-for-service model, meaning that you pay me directly for services at the time that they are rendered. I am willing to give you a monthly invoice with all of the information that you need to present to your insurance company to be directly reimbursed by them. Since I have not signed an agreement with any insurance companies, I am considered an out-of-network (OON) provider and your insurance company may reimburse you at their OON rate.
Insurance companies consider their reimbursement rates a "trade secret" meaning that they will not disclose how much you will receive from them per session. Some plans will reimburse 100% of my charge and others will pay a percentage of the "usual, customary and reasonable" rate as determined by them. You should also be aware that your contract with your insurance company requires that I provide it with information relevant to the services that I provide to you. I am required to provide a clinical diagnosis of a mental illness disorder in order for your insurance to pay for these services.
Cash or check is expected for payment at the beginning of each session. If paying by personal check, you may be asked to present valid picture ID for identification & identity theft purposes.
If you do not show up for your scheduled appointment, and you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full $150. rate of the therapeutic session as booked.
