For all other insurance plans we would be an “out-of-network” provider, but it is still possible to have our services covered. You can ask your insurance company if they reimburse for out-of-network providers; if so, we can provide you with receipts for your payments for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

For BCBS and Aetna subscribers, it is still in your best interest to contact your insurance company prior to your first session to verify that you have coverage. Every plan is different and it is important for you to get specific details regarding your coverage. Here are some helpful questions to ask your insurance company:

(1) Does my plan cover either “Mental Health Benefits” or “Behavioral Health Benefits?”

(2) Is there a limit on the number of outpatient therapy visits covered? If so, how many?

(3) Am I responsible for a co-pay or a certain share of the cost per session? If so, what is that amount?

(4) Is a pre-authorization required before I begin sessions? If so, how do I obtain that?

(5) Does my plan cover “telehealth” sessions? (online video sessions)



Current rates are $170 per 55-minute session; $190 per 70-minute session; $250 per 90-minute session (available on a limited basis)

Chicago Counseling Center accepts cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover for co-pays and other payments.

If you have additional questions related to insurance verification and coverage, please contact our Practice Manager, Christina Perez, at (773)932-9597 ext. 5 or at christina@chicagocounselingcenter.com

He was very patient, understanding, and non-judgmental, which allowed me to uncover problems that were essentially being pushed aside. I used to get uncomfortable and self-conscious about discussing certain things that happened when I was younger, but the environment that he creates is very welcoming and I felt at ease when memories came to mind. He also asked me…
