Rates

Our full fee rates for therapy services range from $165 to $205 an hour, depending on the credential of the therapist. Intake Sessions, the first one to three sessions, are $195-$235. We typically have two intake sessions.

Reduced Fee and Sliding Scale Rates

CTC offers a $50 rate with our therapists- in- training. We also offer additional sliding rate options with staff clinicians on a time-limited and as-needed basis. If you need a sliding fee, please discuss this during your initial phone consultation.

Payment will be collected at the beginning of each session and can be made in the form of cash, check, debit card or credit card.

In Network

CTC is “In Network” with Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO/Blue Choice of Illinois and United. If you chose to use your insurance to pay for your sessions, CTC will submit claims to BCBS / United. You are responsible for amounts not covered by your insurance such as deductible, copay or coinsurance or if your insurance is declined/inactive. We strongly advise new clients to call their insurance to determine their mental health office visit coverage for both in person and telehealth so you know your benefits prior to scheduling.

  • Therapists in network with United are Erynn Besser, Tracy Bischoff, Laura Brownstone and Veronica Miller

Out of Network

If you have another form of insurance, your insurance may cover services for out-of- network providers. It is your responsibility to contact your insurance company to access information regarding your mental health benefits and to obtain any/all authorizations. If your health insurance agrees to reimburse you for your sessions, you will pay for services directly to CTC and we will provide you with a monthly superbill that you can submit to your insurance provider with your claim.

Call the Member Services number on the back of your insurance card and:

  • Follow the automated prompts for:
    • Eligibility and Benefits
    • Mental Health or Behavioral Health
  • Ask to speak to a representative about your benefit details (deductible, copay or coinsurance) for an office visit.
  • Ask the representative if your insurance will cover a telehealth session?   (Please note – CTC does not use the BCBS MDLive platform for telehealth)
