Billing, Payment & Insurance
Psychotherapy and psychological consultation are investments in you and your family's health and well-being. Getting answers to your billing questions is an important part of that process. To facilitate your research, I have included a list of services I provide, my typical fees, and the insurances I can accept.
(Please note that when insurance is used, the insurance company sets the fee, which may be substantially different from my private pay fees. I do not control the fees set by the insurance companies, which include the amount of your co-pay.)
You can now pay your bills online with a credit card. No need to fill out a paper payment form, find a stamp, or hand address a letter. Faster and more efficient!

Insurances accepted by Dr. Goldner
I am "in network" for each of the companies on the list below. Remember to check with your insurance provider before beginning treatment to confirm that you have "outpatient mental health benefits" or you may find your claims rejected by them when my biller submits them. Paying any claims not covered by your insurance company will become the client's sole responsibility to pay.

The phrase Private Pay refers to fees for service paid privately out of pocket by a client. Private pay clients do not use insurance to pay for their sessions.
The Co-pay is the amount of money an insurer requires you to pay per visit. The insurance payment and the client’s co-payment together pay the total fee for each session.
An Intake Session is what the first therapy session is called. During the intake, you tell me why you have come, complete necessary paperwork, receive a diagnosis and create the goals for your treatment plan. Typical intake sessions last 60-90 minutes.
A Regular Session is what every session after the intake is called. Regular sessions are shorter than an intake session, usually 45-60 minutes. Some regular sessions may exceed 60 minutes if necessary.
A Family Session (with or without the client present) is a session where the focus is still on the client but family members are involved in helping support client's treatment. All rules of client privacy and confidentiality are followed.
