Investment

I want to openly acknowledge the investment you make by starting therapy. You are making a big investment of your time, money, and energy by engaging in therapy. It is also essential to balance the costs of therapy with the benefits or what you stand to gain from your investment: a healthier mind, body, relationships, and overall life. Creating positive changes takes a big investment and your engagement in therapy can make it worthwhile. The number of sessions, length of time, and amount of energy that is invested depends on your motivation, goals, preferences, and unique situation. I will work with you to determine the best plan for your therapy.

Payment

I am an ‘In Network’ provider with United Healthcare/Optum, BCBS, and BCBS SHP. 

If I am an ‘Out of Network’ provider for your insurance, it means that I cannot file claims with your insurance company to receive direct payment and therefore clients are responsible for the full payment at the day and time of your session. All major credit and debit cards or cash is accepted. Making online payments is available. 

For ‘Out of Network’ insurance, if you want or need to use insurance coverage for services, you can submit claims to receive reimbursement. To assist with this process, I provide a superbill* to clients who want or need to file a claim with their insurance company. If you would like to use this option, you will pay for services directly to Dr. Erin Sesemann at the time of service and then seek reimbursement from your insurance company based on your coverage plan. 

*A superbill is an itemized or detailed invoice that outlines what services were received by the client. The superbill will also include information that insurance companies frequently require for reimbursement, such as clients’ diagnoses and provider information. 

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
