Sessions rates are typically based on 50 minute sessions. Fees vary based on personal circumstances. Please discuss with Dr. Gietzen if you need to have your personal financial circumstances considered in setting your fee. Though Dr. Gietzen is not obligated to provide reduced-fee therapy, she typically makes exceptions for situations such as being a full-time student, or seeking therapy to satisfy educational or institutional requirements. Dr. Gietzen is not affiliated with any insurance panels. If you have an HMO, services would not be covered. If you have a PPO, it is up to you to find out what your insurance provides you for out-of-network behavioral health services. Dr. Gietzen collects fees at time of service and then can bill on your behalf for PPO insurance reimbursement if you are eligible. Typical fee is $175 per clinical hour and is due at time of services. Cash, check, and credit cards are accepted.

Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health benefits?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
  • How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network provider?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?
  • Are there future risks for using health insurance for mental health care?

Cash, checks and credit cards are accepted in the office at the time of visit. All major credit cards accepted for payment through the use of PayPal online or able to be kept on file with Square payment system. Payment is expected within one week after sessions have occurred unless other arrangements have been made. If a balance of more than two sessions remains, therapy will be postponed until the balance is paid. If a different payment portal becomes available in Dr. Gietzen's practice you will be notified of additional ways to submit payment virtually.
