Fees & Insurance Issues

Fees

Dr. Jim Walkup’s fee is usually $225 per 45 minutes and $75 for each additional 15 minutes.

Phone calls that last more than 15 minutes will be charged at $75 for each 15 minute period with Dr. Walkup

For a  fee in the range of $60 to $120, consider working Ms. Carrie Babe M.S. who has completed a master’s degree program in psychotherapy and marriage counseling and is licensed to do therapy under the supervision of Dr. Walkup before becoming fully licensed. In some cases she will be doing co-therapy with Dr. Walkup and sometimes you will be seen by the Associate alone. These interns will be under his close supervision.

Insurance coverage: Dr. Walkup is covered by any insurance plan that covers a licensed marrige and family therapist in the state of New York. Dr. Walkup is not on any networks but will give each client a monthly bill with required information for insurance if needed. Some policies do not see marriage counseling as a medical expense and do not offer coverage. To find out if you are covered for marriage counseling, call your insurance provider.  For the Associate Therapists, Dr. Walkup will contact your insurance carrier to see if your policy cover pre-licensed therapists.
