Counseling sessions are 50-55 minutes in length. The first session, for history and assessment, is billed at $175. All subsequent sessons are billed at $160 per hour. Fees that are not billed to insurance companies, or copayments, are collected at the time of the session. Clients are expected to let me know with 24 hours notice if they are not able to make an appointment.
I am covered by most major insurance carriers including, but not limited to:
Regence Blue Shield
Premera Blue Cross
United Behavioral Health and United Healthcare
Federal Employee Program
First Choice Health Plans
Healthcare Management Administrators
To find out if I am covered, contact your insurance company and ask if David Dickman, MSW is on their preferred panel. Sometimes there are special circumstances such as pre-authorization requirements, copayment amount, or Annual Deductible to be met. It is the client’s responsibility to find out if there are any special circumstances.
