Cost of Marriage Counseling or Couples Counseling Using Insurance

Blue Cross/Blue Shield PPO

What is the cost of Marriage Counseling or Couples Counseling in Chicago? 

We are in network with Blue Cross/Blue Shield. We check insurance benefits and bill this insurance only.

If you have Blue Cross/Blue Shield PPO insurance, we bill your insurance directly. You are responsible for co-pays and deductibles.

Other Insurance

The longer you wait to invest in your relationship, the more expensive the repairs may be later on.

For all other insurance, we offer a complementary check of benefits and provide complementary out-of-network billing for clients who have another insurance plan. You will need to pay for our services first. You will be reimbursed by your insurance provider directly.

We can also provide you with a statement that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement through your out-of-network provider benefits or your flexible spending account. You will need to pay for our services first, and then submit the statement we give you to your insurance company for reimbursement.

Many of our clients decide not to use their insurance benefits.

A limited number of lower fee sessions are available. Call to inquire.

The fees for our services for marriage counseling, couples counseling, relationship counseling and education are:

$165 or $250 for the initial session, depending on length and associate.

Fees after the first session vary by associate.

$140/200 for a standard 50-minute session

$180/250 for a 75-minute session

$225/300 for a 90-minute session

Longer sessions are generally not covered by insurance.

Out-of-Pocket Extended Sessions

Extended or intensive couples sessions are also available for the convenience of couples who live or work out of town or who want to get more done in a shorter period of time. This option may also be a good choice for couples who can't schedule weekly sessions.

Please note: Insurance does not cover couples intensive sessions.

All Day Weekend intensives are also available.

How to Think About the Cost of Couples Counseling?

When you think about the cost of couples counseling, it is important to take into account that attending couples counseling is like making an investment in the future.

Paying attention to the relationship indicates that you are serious about nurturing it, preserving it or changing it.

A relationship needs maintenance in order to survive and thrive.  If you don't take care of a leaking roof, chances are the roof will collapse at a later date. If you forget to maintain your car along the way, the repairs will be more expensive down the road. Your relationship is the same: It is worth investing to maintain the relationship so it doesn't deteriorate.
