Rates and Insurance

Jordan DeJong, LPC and Jeffrey Plankeel, LCSW both have the same counseling rates for self-pay therapy.  We may differ at times in terms of which insurance plans we are accepting either in or out of network.  Both counselors will submit electronic billing on your behalf to your insurance companies even if we are out of network.  In network, your therapy will often be free to you or will involve a copay - typically between $10-60 per session.  At times, you may have a deductible, which means you will be responsible for payment until the deductible amount is met.  Please contact your insurance company if you have questions about this.  Out of network, often you will be reimbursed by your insurance company at 50-65% of your session fee after paying your provider - assuming your deductible has already been met.   This is often true of clients seeing Jeffrey Plankeel, LCSW with Blue Cross / Blue Shield and United HealthCare.  After paying the session fee, we will submit your claim and often you will get partial reimbursement by your insurance company via a check in the mail.  At times, we may opt to close to certain insurances due to either low reimbursement rates or to problems working administratively with a particular company.  Often, this is the case with VA Choice, Tricare for couples therapy (not individual therapy), ChampVA, and both Cigna and Aetna EAP.

All Providers at Plankeel Counseling, LLC have the same counseling rates for self-pay therapy. We may differ at times in terms of which insurance plans we are accepting either in or out of network. All counselors will submit electronic billing on your behalf to your insurance companies even if we are out of network (courtesy billing so that your payments are either applied to your deductible or you get a partial reimbursement from your insurance company). In network, your therapy will often be free to you or will involve a copay - typically between $10-60 per session. At times, you may have a deductible, which means you will be responsible for payment at your insurance's contract rate until the deductible amount is met. Please contact your insurance company if you have questions about this. Out of network, often you will be reimbursed by your insurance company at 50-65% of your session fee after paying your provider - assuming your deductible has already been met. At times, we may opt to close to certain insurances due to either low reimbursement rates or to problems working administratively with a particular company.  You are responsible for any fees that your insurance company does not pay.
