Rates

There are two options available to you should you start with therapy:

Option A

I am contracted to most medical aids and can send the claims directly to them for payment, at medical aid rates.  There is no cost to the client unless the medical aid should reject the claim for whatever reason, then it remains the client’s responsibility to settle the account balance.

During a medical aid claim submission, the therapist will have to include an ICD-10 code corresponding with a diagnosis, as per Health Regulations.  Should the client not want the diagnosis to be given, instructions are to be given to the Therapist in this regard.

Option B:

Should you choose not to use your medical aid, I charge R700 cash per session.

Responsibility rests on the patient to determine medical aid benefits available for psychology treatment and should the medical aid be depleted/refuse payment, the patient remains responsible for the payment of the account.

SHOULD THE MEDICAL AID NOT COVER PSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICES OR THE FUNDS ARE DEPLETED, OPTION B WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE IMPLEMENTED AND CLIENTS WILL BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACCOUNT.

Payment for each session is made at the time it is held, unless agreed otherwise. In circumstances of unusual financial hardship, I may be willing to negotiate a fee adjustment or payment installment plan.

If an account has not been paid upon three payment reminders, I have the option of using legal means to secure the payment. (If such legal action is necessary, its costs will be included in the claim).
