Fees & Financial Policies

We recognize that psychological services often involve a serious financial investment for most people. We also believe that these services are a crucial investment in more fully becoming the person you were created to be. What else is that important?

Our Fees
At RWPS, the first appointment is a 90-minute interview aimed at building a relationship with you, clarifying the nature of your struggles, and exploring how we might work together to assist you. Subsequent sessions are 50 minutes in length, unless alternate arrangements are made. Our fees for these appointments are as follows (the fees quoted here are subject to change):

Doctoral-level providers:
Initial appointment (90 minutes): $320
Subsequent sessions (50 minutes): $160

Pre-doctoral providers (externs or interns):
Initial appointment (90 minutes): $200
Subsequent sessions (50 minutes): $100

Group therapy sessions are 90 minutes and the fee is $100 for all providers.

In some cases, we may recommend conducting sessions of different duration than those quoted here. Fees for these sessions will be discussed at that time.

Fees for psychological assessments depend on the nature of the assessment and how much time will be required to complete it. Please contact us so that we can provide a quote regarding your psychological assessment needs.

Since we regard time as a precious gift from God and our sessions with you as a joint commitment to our work, we do reserve the right to charge a $70 fee for No Shows or appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours notice (except in emergency situations).

Insurance
RWPS does not participate in insurance plans or insurance panels. We believe that remaining outside of this system will help us to safeguard your privacy, enable us to focus more solely on providing the best services we can, and keep our administrative expenses down.

Payment Options
There are four main options for paying for our services: Self-Pay, Self-Claim, Sponsorship, and the RWPS Charitable Grant Program.

Self-Pay
We accept cash, checks, and credit cards at the time of service. Our practice management software also allows you to make payments online through the Patient Portal.

Self-Claim
Even though we do not directly participate in insurance plans, some patients elect to submit their own claims to their health insurance company for our services as an "out-of-network" provider. We can provide limited assistance in this process. We can provide a statement (sometimes called a “Superbill”) that lists all of the information your insurance company would need to process a claim. You can then mail this statement to the claims department of your insurance company for processing. Please note that these statements become available a few days after services were rendered. Regardless of whether your insurance company will reimburse you, the fees are still your responsibility and are due at the time of service.

Sponsorship
Some of our patients have been successful at finding others to help pay for their psychological services. In some cases family members, friends, business, or church-related organizations pay part or all of their fees. We encourage you to discern whether there may be sources of financial help that could partner with you and us in helping you become your best self.

RWPS Charitable Grant
For those who cannot afford our services even after pursuing all of the above options, we are pleased to offer a Charitable Grant Program. These monetary Grants are given to a portion of qualifying RWPS patients per session to offset the standard fees. Interested individuals must complete an application and provide verification of current income (e.g., the first page of your most recent federal tax return). The amount of the Grant will vary depending on the needs of the individual and the availability of funds and is subject to approval. The remaining fee is still the responsibility of the patient and is due at the time of service. Please contact us for more information.
