Therapist's note

A Good Place Therapy providers are out-of-network for all insurance carriers except Lyra Health; some providers are also in-network with NYU student health insurance (CHP).

Prospective clients also have the option of seeing of the many excellent LMSWs who take NYU CHP insurance; they also offer fees starting at $100/session if clients meet income eligibility.

Clinicians will file out-of-network benefits directly on behalf of clients, so that clients only need to pay the deductible or the copay up front. Many people have excellent OON benefits and after their deductibles are met, they pay only 20-50% of the fee. A Good Place also commonly reduces what clients pay until they reach their deductible.
