COVID 19 (Corona Virus) Update

As an Essential Service (healthcare) we continue to remain open during the COVID 19 situation.

If you do not have COVID 19 symptoms you have the option of coming to see your therapist or provider in person.

If you have symptoms, have been placed on quarantine, or prefer not to come into the office, you can still have your appointment through video (telehealth) on your computer, phone, or tablet.  Most insurances will also allow you to have your appointment by phone.  Please call our office at (518) 825-1555 if you have any questions.

Self Pay Rates

For those who do not have active insurance and need to self pay for your appointments we have developed the following fee schedule:

  • Psychiatrist:
    • $300 for an initial assessment
    • $150 for follow up (up to 30 minutes in length)

No-Show and Late Cancel Fees

If you have private insurance or Medicare (i.e. not Medicaid) you will be charged $50 for a missed follow up and $100 for a missed initial assessment that is cancelled late or you do not show up for.

In the case of Medicaid, including managed Medicaid plans, we have a separate policy which patients sign.  We do not charge this group of patients any fees.  However, if too many appointments are cancelled late or are no shows, you will be moved to same day appointments or your file will be closed.

Please note, if a patient with Medicaid is a No-Show or Late Cancels their initial appointment it is our policy to close their file with our clinic.
