frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Why do different therapists have different prices?

Your price per session depends on which therapist you choose to work with. Our most recently Licensed Therapists and limited Licensed Therapists are at the beginning of the price range and our more experienced and credentialed Licensed Therapists are at the higher end of the price range.

 

Can I use my insurance to pay for therapy?

The therapists at Catalyss Counseling are considered out-of-network providers. This means that we can provide you with a verification form called a “superbill” that you can then submit to your insurance company for partial to full reimbursement, depending on your out-of-network benefits. Payment is due at the time of service. We are not in-network with any insurance companies.

 

Why don’t you accept insurance?​​

Many of our clients have expressed concerns about going through their insurance companies for therapy, in part because of the requirement to provide them with a diagnosis that goes on your medical record. In addition, insurance companies often limit the number of therapy sessions that you are eligible for, based on your diagnosis, and all counseling must be considered "medically necessary". Because of these concerns, we have elected to stay a private-pay counseling service.

 

Do I get a free consultation?

Yes! We offer a FREE 20-minute phone consultation so you understand the process to get started, know what to expect in your counseling sessions, and find the right therapist to meet your needs. Schedule your free phone consultation now!

 

What does therapy cost in Denver?

Our prices are right in the middle of the average cost of therapy in the Denver area, which is between $120-$180/hour. You can find some therapists who are more expensive, who tend to be more highly specialized in one specific treatment area. We strive to increase access to care to everyone, and that is why we have an Affordable Counseling Program.

 

Can I use my HSA to pay for therapy?

Absolutely! Your HSA, or Health Savings Account, definitely covers the cost of therapy, usually through a debit card. We accept HSA cards.

 

Do you offer evening and weekend appointments?

For sure. It is very important that we continually offer convenient appointment times for busy professionals and parents, and we understand that you need to fit counseling into your already packed schedule.

 

Why should I pay for therapy out of pocket versus using my insurance?

We do not keep a wait list at Catalyss Counseling. If you choose to pay out of pocket for individual or group therapy with us, we can usually get you an appointment within a week. Most therapists who accept insurance are full or have extensive wait lists. We can provide you personalized and professional service from inquiry to intake, and then from your intake and beyond.

 

If you pay out of pocket, you will also have more freedom in deciding how often and how long to continue your therapy. Finally, your counseling will be 100% confidential within Catalyss Counseling. We are not allowed to release your therapy information (including diagnosis) to your insurance company or medical providers without your written consent. These are some of the many benefits of paying out of pocket for counseling services.

Good Faith Estimate

You have a right to receive a "Good Faith Estimate" explaining how much your medical care will cost.

Under law, health care providers need to give patients who don't have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

For questions or information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call the Colorado Division of Insurance at 303-894-7490 or 1-800-930-3745.
