Why should I choose your practice?
We know you have many choices to make when it comes to your mental health. Merit Psychology Group therapists believe in taking an integrative, holistic, and data-driven approach to the care and treatment they provide to get the best possible outcomes for each person they see. They also believe in whole person care which means we look at you as a sum of your experiences not as a list of symptoms or diagnoses. We work with you to gain skills to live your best life, not to change who you are or stigmatize you.
How does payment work at your practice?
We work with Spring Health and Lyra Health plans. Your services will be fully covered under those plans if you have a job that sponsors them. We are "out of network" with all other insurances. All clinicians have a set private pay rate of $250/session. We are happy to submit claims on your behalf directly to your insurance company but we also provide super bills for service so that you can also do this at your leisure. We can also help you understand your benefits during a brief consultation phone call. If these rates are a restriction we do ask that you speak with us directly as we do have limited spaces for sliding scale.
