Do the counselors at Insight Counseling take medical insurance?

Yes, all the counselors take medical insurance. However, we cannot not accept Medicaid, nor the medical card issued by the state of Illinois.

Each counselor is covered by a variety of different plans. The easiest way to find out which counselor is covered by your insurance is to go to the website listed on the back of your insurance card and find the names of network providers. You can also call the phone number for customer service on the back of your insurance card.  Please note that often there is a separate phone number for behavioral health or substance abuse issues.
Do the counselors at Insight Counseling ever offer a sliding fee scale or reduced fees?

Yes, on a case by case basis all of the counselors offer reduced fees. Please discuss this with your counselor while making your first appointment.

How much does all of this cost?

Due to varying levels of education, experience and specialty, each provider sets their own rates. In general, a session of therapy can cost between $90 to $180 per hour. However, in most cases, the vast majority of these fees are covered by medical insurance.
