Currently, the Houston OCD Program is an out-of-network provider, which means while we are not contracted with any insurance panels, you can see if your insurance company will reimburse from your out-of-network insurance benefits. Most insurance plans do provide the opportunity to apply for reimbursement for therapy services received from out-of-network providers. In instances of insurance reimbursement, we ask each individual to pay for services and accept reimbursement from the insurance. You will be provided with a billing statement for the services rendered and fees paid to submit to your insurance. Please call your insurance company prior to your first appointment and ask the following questions:
Does my insurance plan have out-of-network mental health benefits?
What is my annual deductible and has it been met for this year?
When does my calendar year start?
How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
Is an authorization required? If yes, how do I obtain it?
Am I eligible for reimbursement for out-of network outpatient therapy provided by the Houston OCD Program, National Provider Identification Number: 1942535273
What % is reimbursed per visit for an out-of-network provider?
What is the dollar amount recognized per visit (usual and customary rate or UCR)?
What forms do I need to submit for reimbursement? (Note: most insurance companies require that you submit a Monthly Billing Statement and a Treatment Plan from your therapist together with a standard HCFA 1500 claim form completed by you. Find out if there are any other forms required and how to obtain them).
What address should I mail my claims to?
Are there any time limitations on filing my claims for reimbursement?
How much do you charge for your outpatient services?
For our PhD-level therapists, the first initial evaluation is $295 with $195 for following additional sessions. Initial evaluation with one of our Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC) is $265 with $175 for additional sessions.
Do you offer a sliding scale or a reduced fee?
We offer outpatient services at a reduced fee. These services are provided by psychology graduate students who are supervised by a licensed clinical psychologist.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Cash, Check, or Credit Card is appreciated at the time of service. Clients are responsible for all fees.
What is your cancellation policy?
Please call 24 hours in advance if you cannot keep your appointment.
The Houston OCD Program was of great benefit to me in that I was able to take large strides in reclaiming part of my life that before was lost due to OCD. I had suffered with severe OCD for over a year with contamination fears and rituals taking a large part of my time. Through seven weeks of hard work and with the leadership of expert staff who make up The Houston OCD Program, I was able to make drastic improvement in the severity of my OCD symptoms. There is still some work to do but I am very capable now, using the tools that I learned from the program, to get my life back and make it even better. I appreciate the entire staff at the Houston OCD Program for helping me through a difficult illness, so to them I say thanks.
