Counseling and Assessment services are offered at a flat rate. In some circumstances we offer sliding scales based on necessity. Currently Dr. Sakuma accepts the following insurance plans:
- Regence Blue Cross/Blue Shield
- Premera Blue Cross/ Blue Shield
- Out of network (please call your company to check your coverage)
- Initial Consultation (1.5-2 hours) $200
- 50 minute therapy session $150
- Assessment- Cost based on clinical question and tests used (time will vary). $95/hour (interviewing/administering tests/scoring tests/interpreting tests/writing report).
- Some types of Psychological assessment are typically not covered by insurance unless the question is deemed ‘medically necessary.’ The medical necessity qualification is sometimes attainable, through a referral from your physician but can take pre-approval from the insurance company and some waiting period while approval is sought.
