Psychotherapy Fees and Insurance

We accept insurance plans from most of the major providers, and try to be as accommodating as possible when it comes to providing services. Self-pay is available for those patients with plans on which we are considered out-of-network. Call us today and we’ll do our best to accommodate to your situation.

Dr. Chabaud:
Self Pay: $150/ 55 min session
Health Plans: BCBS, Tricare, Aetna, Humana, Medicare, ComPsych, WEBTPA/LSUFirst

Dr. Kershenstine:
Self Pay: $125/ 55 min session

Discounted rates available on an as needed basis. Ask your provider directly if they have a sliding scale or discounted rate.

We prefer payment by cash or check.

We also accept debit, credit (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and Diners Club), health savings accounts (HSA), and flexible spending accounts (FSA). For credit card processing, we use Ivy Pay, which was developed for therapists as a way to protect patient privacy under HIPAA. You will never give OCDIGNO your credit card information, but instead enter that information directly into Ivy Pay's secure site. Your credit card statement won't indicate that you made a payment to a therapist, but instead will show charges as paid to I V Y Labs, Inc. This way, our therapeutic relationship is kept confidential.
