Fees & Policies
Dr. Hashioka currently accepts all new clients as out of network. The fee for individual therapy is $150/50 minute session, Individual therapy $200/90 minute session. If you would like to utilize your insurance plan please call your insurance carrier to ask about out of network coverage as amount of sessions covered per year and reimbursement amount varies with different insurance carriers. It is highly recommended that before you start therapy to understand your coverage you ask and review questions below with your insurance carrier. If you have any questions about this please contact Dr. Hashioka to reduce any confusion.
At the end of the month if requested Dr. Hashioka can provide an invoice for services rendered, which will allow you to independently submit claims to your insurance provider. Please note that the majority of insurance plans will offer you a reimbursement of some of your out-of-pocket expense per session. Dr. Hashioka advises that you check with your insurance provider to determine what level of reimbursement they will offer you for out-of-network service.
A sliding scale option may also be available, if you are seeking a reduced fee due to financial hardship. This can be discussed confidentially with Dr. Hashioka.
