Our Fees

Fees for therapy at CPC are similar to other providers in the San Francisco Bay Area with comparable levels of training. Our therapists are “out-of-network” providers for insurance plans outside of several Aetna plans.

Some insurance plans offer coverage (usually a percentage of the fee) for mental health services.

We encourage anyone interested in working with us to check with their insurance provider about your coverage for an “out-of-network” psychologist.

We also suggest clarifying whether telehealth sessions are eligible for reimbursement, as policies can differ across insurance providers. Upon request, we will provide a statement for services (a “superbill”) that can be submitted to an insurance company. ​

What to Ask

You may wish to ask your Insurance Provider:

  • Does my plan have any out-of-network coverage for mental health services? (be sure to specify billing codes)
  • Is there an out-of-network deductible, and if so, what is it?
  • How many mental health sessions does my plan cover per year?
  • What information/forms do I need to submit in order to receive out-of-network reimbursement?
  • Where do I submit reimbursement claims?
  • Are there any time limitations for filing claims?
