As Ms. Krystal Rothlander is a practicum student, it is unlikely that any extended health coverage that you have will cover sessions with her. She is, however, offering a session fees on a sliding scale between $75 and $125 per session. We ask that you operate with integrity in seeking this particular offset so that we may reserve it for people most in need. This is for people with income limitations and financial constraints that are a barrier for treatment.We are unable to provide direct billing services for Ms. Rothlander and you will be fully responsible for payment of her fee at the time your appointment occurs. If you are eligible for reimbursement under your insurance plan for sessions with a student, you are responsible for submitting any receipts directly to your insurance coverage and any payment will be issued to you per your individual plan benefits.
