There are several options available to help you cover the cost of your counseling or psychotherapy. Payment of the full fee, or the relevant copay, is expected at the time of each session. However, the counselors at Bethel Center want to work with you on this matter so feel free to discuss it with your therapist.
Here are a few suggestions, one of which may work for you.
Health InsuranceThe therapists at Bethel Center accept a number of insurances. If your policy includes coverage for mental/behavioral health, this may be the most convenient option for you.Many people also use their Medical Savings or Flex accounts to supplement their insurance.
Bethel Center also accepts Medicare.
Credit CardBethel Center accepts Master Card, Visa, Discover Card, and American Express if you wish to use your credit card to cover your deductible or copay.
Creative Scheduling Normally appointments are scheduled weekly. For some conditions this is necessary for appropriate treatment.
However, depending on your diagnosis and the indicated treatment, sometimes appointments can be scheduled at intervals that allow for easier budgeting of your payments.
Sometimes appointments may be shortened from the usual 45 minutes to 30 minutes.
Depending on a person's particular treatment needs, group therapy may be an option. This is weekly but has a lower fee than individual therapy.
Your health and helping you recover are the main considerations. Not all options are suitable for every situation and your therapist will consider your health to be the most important consideration.
