Fees and Insurance


All of our therapists have established fee schedules based on annual household income.  We take into account special circumstances that impact the finances of an individual, couple or family.

Our fee scale ranges from $100-$190 per session. The range for group therapy is $25-$85 per session.

Our postgraduate therapists are able to offer a lower fee range of $25-$70 per session.

No Surprises Act

Your therapist will provide you with information on the No Surprises Act and a Good Faith Estimate at the time of your first appointment.  Additional estimates are available upon request.

Some Womencare therapists are paneled with BlueCross BlueShield of Illinois PPO and/or Northwestern University’s student health insurance, Aetna.  If your therapist is in-network with your insurance provider, Womencare will submit bills to your insurance company.  You will be responsible for paying your deductible, copay, or co-insurance, as determined by your insurance company.

For all other insurance companies our therapists are considered as out-of-network providers.  We suggest checking with your insurance provider about your out-of-network benefits.

We provide our clients with a monthly statement, which they can submit to their insurance company for out-of-network reimbursement based on their policies.

We also have a number of clients who use Flexible Healthcare Spending Accounts and debit cards to set aside pre-tax dollars to pay for their therapy.  Check with your plan about its rules and policies.

If you plan to use your insurance, please contact the member services number on your insurance card and ask about your mental health benefits.  Our providers are LCSWs, LCPCs, and LMFTs.  Be sure to ask about your in- or out-of-network: 

  • Deductible
  • Timeline for reimbursement
  • Copay or co-insurance
  • Any limitation on the number of sessions
