Fee Schedule – Hourly rates and Fees

Session Fees

Fees for service range from $175.00-$200.00 per hour. Specific pricing is based on the services provided. In addition to the fee schedule listed, we will consider accepting other fee agreements on a case by case basis.

Individual therapy and consultation sessions are 50 minutes and sessions are scheduled at your convenience.  Each patient begins with a thorough assessment with Dr Dohrenwend which allows her to understand your history and why you have decided to participate in psychological treatment. A unique treatment plan is created and regularly reviewed with you to ensure your progress. 

Testing and assessment sessions can range from 3 to 5 hours, depending on the referral question and needs of each client. Please contact us to discuss an assessment or evaluation quote based on your specific needs.

Forensic Psychological Evaluations are typically complicated and labor intensive. The entire evaluation process may include record review, forensic psychological testing, test scoring and interpretation, forensic interviews, and preparing and providing reports, affidavits, and testimony.  This may take a minimum of 12 to 15 hours.  Every case varies in terms of the volume of discovery or records required for review.  Moreover, each examinee differs in the time needed to complete interviewing and testing.  In addition to the fee schedule listed above, Dr. Dohrenwend may accept other fee agreements that are required or customary for a particular agency, law firm or a specific court. This will all be discussed at the onset of the case in which you are retaining forensic consultation or assessment.

Payment

We accept Cash, Check, Visa, Master Card, American Express, DiscoverHSA (Health Savings Account) and FSA (Flexible Spending Account). Psychology 360 does not accept insurance although some insurance providers consider us an “out of network” provider, and you may opt to receive reimbursement.  We feel that there are benefits to paying privately, including confidentiality and the ability to work without the restrictions that most insurance providers require.

Insurance reimbursement

Although we do not accept insurance, some insurance providers consider us an “out of network” provider, and will reimburse you for a portion of the fees paid.

Out-of-network providers are paid directly by the client who then submits for reimbursement to the insurance company. However, it’s important to first call your plan and inquire about reimbursement because sometimes these companies will not fully reimburse for forensic psychological evaluations if they are not deemed “medically necessary.

We can assist with pre-authorization forms and will provide a billing statement as needed to file with your insurance company.  The following list of suggested questions may be helpful when contacting your insurance provider to determine coverage.

Questions to ask your insurance provider:

  • Is there a deductible? Has it been met?
  • What portion of my care or evaluation will be reimbursed?
  • Is a referral needed?
  • Is pre-authorization required?
  • Is the cost of individual psychotherapy testing covered?
  • Is the cost of psychological testing covered?
