Fees and Policies

We are very aware of the need for affordable mental health treatment in New York City and have developed a model that offers affordable choices.

The cost of an evaluation by Dr. Fader or Dr. Dulchin represents our standard fee. However, the fee for our other excellent clinicians can be considerably less depending on his or her expertise and experience. All of our clinicians are supervised by either Dr. Dulchin or Dr. Fader and are selected for their talent, training and expertise.

Though we do not participate in any insurance plans, we have a supportive and friendly office staff who works with most of our clients to help obtain reimbursement wherever possible.

Please contact us so we can describe in detail the options available.

Submitting to Insurance:

We are happy to provide all of the documentation you need to allow you to submit to your insurance company so you can be reimbursed if you have “out of network” coverage.

It is often helpful to call your insurance company and ask them what your out-of-network coverage is. The codes we tend to bill include 90792 for the initial evaluation, 99212 + 90836 for psychotherapy, and 99213 + 90833 for psychopharmacology if your practitioner is an MD or Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. If your clinician is a PhD, PsyD or MSW then the codes used are 90791 for the initial evaluation and 90832, 90834, or 90837 for psychotherapy.

We will discuss our fees with you on our brief evaluation over the phone, which we do free of charge. When you come in for an office visit, payment is expected at the time of visit and we expect that all payment is done via credit card. You will be given a receipt with all of the information that will allow for submission to your insurance company.

Cancellation Policies:

We understand that you have a life with its own commitments and that everyone has unexpected changes to their schedule. With more than 24 hours notice, we are happy to try to accommodate your schedule to the best of our ability.

However, if you need to cancel or reschedule with less than 24 hours notice, your credit card will be billed for half of the session fee for the missed appointment. We are happy to try to reschedule your session as quickly as possible (that appointment will be billed at the regular fee). It is important to realize that “no show” sessions cannot be submitted to insurance for reimbursement.
