Fees & Insurance

Helping Hands Psychotherapy has a fee structure that aims to make care accessible, while still allowing us to provide high quality care.


Several of our providers are in-network with Northwell Direct and Compsych.  If you choose a provider who is not in network we will let you know.

We  are out of network for all other insurance plans.  If you have out of network benefits, we may be able to work directly with your insurance plan to cover part/all of the fee.

  • Initial Assessment (90791) $275

  • 45 minute session (90834) (38-52 minutes) $200

  • 60 minute session /EMDR (90837) (53+ minutes) $225

  • 30 minute session (90832) (16-37 minutes)  $175

  • Group psychotherapy (90853)  $60

  • Multifamily Group Therapy (90849) $100

  • Family psychotherapy (90847) (with patient present)  $225

Sliding Scale Available


We are happy to offer a sliding scale for those in need. 


The sliding scale ranges from $40-$225 for individual sessions, and $25-$60 for group sessions.  We also have some "pay what you can afford" spots available with our clinical interns. Our clinical interns are students enrolled in a graduate program. They are able to provide low cost services under the supervision of a licensed clinician.

There is an $80 cancellation/no show fee for appointments canceled with less than 24 hours notice.

Good Faith Estimate

If you do not have insurance, or are choosing not to use your insurance, beginning January 1st, 2022 you have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.  This "Good Faith Estimate" will be provided verbally and in writing upon scheduling services or upon request.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between “in-network” and “out of network”? 

In-network providers (sometimes referred to as “participating providers”) have signed a contract with your insurance company agreeing to follow their rules and accept a predetermined payment.  Providers who are in-network get the benefit of being added to the insurance company's directory and receive referrals directly.  Out of network providers (sometimes referred to as “non-participating providers'') do not have a contract with your insurance company.  They will not be automatically paid by the insurance company and do not get referrals from the insurance company.  If you have out of network benefits your insurance company may cover/reimburse you a part of your bill.  Every insurance plan is different and this may be a set dollar amount or a percentage of your bill.  You may be "balance billed" for the difference between our fee and what is covered though your out of network benefit.

If I want to contact my insurance to see what is covered out of network what do I ask?


You should ask the following questions:

  • Do I have out of network coverage?

  • Is telehealth covered (if choosing to use telehealth)

  • Is there a deductible?  If so, has any of it been already met this year?

  • Once the deductible is met, what is the copay or co-insurance for out of network providers?

  • Is there an out of pocket maximum for out of network providers?

  • Is prior approval required?  

  • Do you send payment to the provider or directly to the member?

  • Ask for a name and call reference number.
