My fee for an initial intake appointment of approximately 70 minutes is $350. My fee for a standard session of approximately 55 minutes is $225. I reserve a few spaces in my practice for patients who cannot afford my full fee.

I am a preferred (in-network) provider for Premera Blue Cross, Regence Blue Shield, Aetna, Lifewise Health Plan of Washington, First Choice Health, and Medicare.

If you have a different insurance plan, you will be responsible for payment of my full fee at the time of service; however, I can submit insurance claims on your behalf. You may be partially reimbursed for my services. Here are questions that I recommend you ask your insurance provider before coming to see me for your first visit:

  • Do I have coverage for “outpatient mental or behavioral health”?
  • Does my coverage require pre-approval or a referral from my primary care physician?
  • What is my deductible and co-pay?
  • What percentage of my psychotherapy fees are covered?
  • Do my benefits cover only in-network providers, or do I also have out-of-network benefits?
  • Are services provided by Scott Renschler, Psy.D. (or whomever you are interested in seeing) covered by my plan? (Your insurance carrier may ask you for the therapist’s credentials. I am a licensed psychologist.)
