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 or call the Colorado Division of Insurance at 303-894-7490 or 1-800-930-3745.

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?

Some of the therapists at Catalyss Counseling are in-network only with Aetna insurance (a few are not in-network with Aetna). For all other insurance companies, we are considered out-of-network providers, which 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.


Why don’t you accept all insurances?​​

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 mostly 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 offer more expensive therapy, who tend to be more highly specialized in one specific treatment area, and less expensive therapy, provided by likely younger and more inexperienced therapists.


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.


Should I pay for therapy out of pocket or use my insurance?

You can choose either route depending on your needs. If you pay out of pocket, you’ll have more freedom in deciding how often and how long to continue your therapy, and your counseling will be 100% confidential within Catalyss Counseling. If you choose to use your insurance (that we accept), we will need to provide a diagnosis to your insurance company and adhere by their guidelines for only providing “medically necessary” treatment based on your diagnosis.
