Fees and Insurance

1. Do you accept insurance?

Yes, therapists at Bedford Family Therapy are in-network for a select number of insurance companies. Each provider within Bedford Family Therapy is contracted with different insurance companies so be sure to check with your specific plan before beginning services. Some insurance companies we work with include Anthem BCBS, Harvard Pilgrim, United Healthcare, United Behavioral Health, Tufts, and Cigna.

Although Bedford Family Therapy works with various insurance companies, using third party payers carries a certain amount of risk in regards to confidentiality. Additionally, utilizing health benefits, versus private pay, may limit the length of appointments and overall services due to managed care restrictions.

If you have an insurance plan that is not listed, please call your insurance carrier to find out about out- of- network benefits that may be available to you.

2.  What are your fees?

Services are billed at a rate of $150.00 per hour (effective Oct. 1, 2019).  Payment (including co-payment and co-insurance) is expected at the time of service and is accepted in the form of cash, personal check, or credit card.

Once your appointment time is scheduled and reserved, we request 48 hours advanced notice for a cancellation. Failure to provide 48 hours notice will result in a client charge of a $100 missed session fee.

In the event you request or require your or your child’s therapist to attend or prepare for court, you agree to provide compensation at the rate of $250 per hour. The fee will need to be paid in advance for a minimum of four hours to account for the rescheduling of client sessions.

3. Do you have a reduced fee or sliding fee scale? 

We do not want to turn anyone away due to a financial situation. If you cannot afford the full hourly fee, please introduce this when you call or discuss the matter with your therapist. You may be eligible for a reduced fee which is based, in part, on family income.
