    Although the vast majority of patients elect to private pay for services, IHT is paneled with and accepts some health insurances (Blue Cross Blue Shield. Blue Care Network)

    Wait, Why Do Most Patients Private Pay?

    Many of our patients have experienced medical trauma and discrimination/devaluation by the medical community. They feel empowered by private paying and avoiding the system that has, in many cases, caused them harm. When patients elect to private pay for services, IHT is able to provide more complete privacy and confidentiality. This allows the patient to control how their personal information is shared. 

    Insurance companies require any healthcare provider to assign a diagnosis code justifying any service provided. When a therapist provides a mental health diagnosis (ex. Depression, Anxiety Disorder, Substance Use Disorder, etc.) in order to seek reimbursement, that diagnosis becomes part of the medical history records. This can have unintended effects later on if this information is shared, either intentionally (medical history review for employment, insurance, etc.) or unintentionally (HIPPA violations, insurance database hacking, etc.). This is avoided by private paying for services.


    We accept cash, check, PayPal, and all major credit cards as forms of payment. We also accept payment directly via this website and in your client portal. Payment is due at the time of service and is collected at the start of session.

    Cancellation Policy

    To avoid a $100 no show or late cancellation fee, if you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand.
