Bergen Alliance Counseling
Fees & Insurance
Fees: At Bergen Alliance we do our best to meet the financial needs of each and every
individual or family we see. Once your first appointment is scheduled, you will give us or email
your insurance information. We then will call the insurance company for you to find out what
your coverage is for mental health services. We then will call you and go over your coverage with you.
Then we can schedule your first appointment the same week, or within a week in most cases.
INSURANCES WE ACCEPT: We accept all out of network insurance coverage. If you have out
of network coverage we will accept what the insurance pays for an out of network provider. If
there is a co-payment or co-insurance we will work something out on an individual basis.
Whenever there is a high deductible, we will do our best to help you.
IN-NETWORK COVERAGE: Currently we are only an in-network provider with CIGNA. We are
in the process of becoming in-network for other insurance companies. Again, call even if
we are out of network and see what we will cost you coming to our office.
No Insurance: If you or your family have no insurance coverage we offer a sliding scale, that is
affordable to you or your family. We never turn anyone away seeking service. We will
work with you and hopefully find a way.
Please be aware that sometimes your in-network co-payment can be quite high depending on
your insurance coverage. We have clients who pay us directly not using their insurance and pay
less then their actual co-payment amount. Many families simply cannot afford their co-
payments on a weekly basis, we can offer you a fee that is affordable so that you or your family
can come weekly. Quite often people cancel appointments with other providers because they
do not have the money on a particular week; that will never occur at Bergen Alliance Counseling
Services because we are here for you and for us it is more about providing the service, than the fee.
As an out of network provider we can offer special rates to our clients because some companies
pay our full fee, and as a result we can lower our fees for others in need. If you are not sure,
call us, give us your information, and we will get back to you within a day regarding your fee.
FEE: $250.00 per session
Sliding Scale: $60-$100.00 per session
