COVID 19 Statement: Because the health and safety of our clients, staff, and community is our top priority, if you are in a high risk category or regularly come into contact with a high risk individual, we ask that you strongly consider Skype, Facetime, or a phone session. If you are feeling ill, we expect you to reschedule or ask for a Skype, Facetime, or phone session.
We invite you to call our office at 419-238-1000 to schedule an appointment with any of our trusted counselors. Services are provided on an appointment basis. If you call our office and no one is available to take your call, we encourage you to leave a voice message and one of our staff will return your call as soon as possible.
All counselor fees are based on a $120.00 per hour rate and billed in 15-minute increments. Fees cover one hour of clinical service, which consists of 50 minutes of direct service to the client and 10 minutes of record keeping and review. Payment for service is required at the time of service. For your convenience, we accept cash, checks and major credit cards. Any checks returned for non-sufficient funds will incur an additional $30.00 charge. We expect payment for the full amount at the end of each session.
Indirect services provided to coordinate your care – such as email correspondence, meetings and letters to other professionals or institutions – will be billed at the rate of $25.00 for each 15-minutes spent.
In many instances, insurance benefits may be available for reimbursing a portion of the client’s fees for counseling services. As a client, you are responsible for filing any claim with your respective insurance company for applicable reimbursement. Van Wert Counseling Services will provide clients with all necessary information in order to file for reimbursement. You will also be responsible for any notification or preauthorization requirements that may be applicable to receive benefits. We suggest you contact your insurance carrier before your appointment regarding your coverage. Your carrier will need to know that we are an out-of-network outpatient mental health counselor.
