Sliding scale means that you may negotiate the rate of your session. If you have financial limitations and cannot afford the full price, take a look at your budget and let us know how much you are able to afford and we can come to an agreed upon rate that you are comfortable with. We have never once turned away a client due to finances so rest assure that you two will be able to work something out.
Lapde’s full price fee is $200, LPCAs charge $100 but everyone works on a sliding scale. For those with financial limitations, interns may be a good option as they work at a hugely discounted rate of $25 due to the fact that they are not licensed yet. Interns are always closely supervised by Lapde.
Some of the clinicians accept most major insurances such as Anthem BlueCross BlueShield, CIGNA, Medicaid Husky, and United Healthcare. To verify your insurance benefits, please fill out the insurance verification form found here. To read more about insurances that we accept, click here.
