The standard private practice fee is $150 for a 55 minute session. Initial intake sessions are $175.00. A portion of this fee may be covered by your health insurance. In addition to weekly appointments, this $150 may be charged, or a pro-rated portion thereof, for other professional services to include report writing, telephone conversations lasting longer than 10 minutes, consulting with other professionals - with your permission, and the preparation of records or treatment summaries.
There is a $40 return check fee, regardless of reason.
Missed appointments will be charged at a rate of $150 if notice has not been provided a minimum of 24 hours in advance. Please note that this and other charges you may incur are not reimbursable by your insurance.
PHI may be shared for the purposes of treatment payment and a third party biller is used to engage with insurance companies on behalf of Shawn Patrick McNulty, LPC and OutKind Counseling. PHI may also be shared with administrative staff who are strictly bound by confidentiality guidelines as directed by HIPAA.
Unfortunately, this is sometimes is necessary. If, for some reason, you should become involved in legal proceedings which may require our participation, it is expected that you will pay for our professional time which will include preparation and transportation costs, even should it be that our involvement was due to court demands made by another party with whom you are connected. These involvements are time consuming and typically interrupt normal scheduling for the practice and, for this reason, a charge $165 per hour is assessed for preparation and attendance at any legal proceeding.
LETTERS IN SUPPORT FOR MEDICALIZATION FOR CLIENTS WHO IDENTIFY AS TRANS* OR GNC:
There are no charges for medical (hormone or surgery) referral letters. If you are not a regular therapy client, it is important to note that both having the opportunity to get to know you and to determine that you possess informed consent for treatment are necessary. Letters require, at the minimum, a single session with a therapist for assessment and the completion of all requested documentation. Please let us know at the time of scheduling your appointment if this is your primary reason for coming to OutKind Counseling.
