Most therapists at the Key Therapy office accept insurance. Please call for more information. For out of network services a receipt can be provided once the session is paid in full. In some cases, with out-of-network services the difference between the out of pocket expense and the reimbursement rate is similar to the expense of a co-pay and will still apply toward your deductible.
Clients are responsible for understanding their policies.
In the event that your insurance doesn't cover the cost of a session, you would be responsible for the full amount. Payment plans can be arranged if needed.
Sessions and consultations are by appointment only. Our therapists make every effort to accommodate your schedule and be available when you need. From time to time clients may experience unforeseen obstacles, sudden illness or other events that can make getting to your appointment difficult.
If you need to cancel or reschedule we request
prior to your scheduled appointment.
To cancel call, text or email your therapist directly.
Help Us Help You
At Key Therapy we want therapy to be accessible. Not only do we take most insurances, we offer lower-cost options and sliding scales.
We do our best to understand what your policy covers and share what we've learned after contacting your insurance company, however, as a policyholder you will always have access to more information about your plan than we do. Because of this, clients are responsible for understanding their own benefits, including what their policy covers, when their insurance re-sets, and what their co-pays are.
For people who have gotten behind or need an alternative way of covering their therapy costs, we even offer payment plans. In return, we ask our clients to communicate changes and update us regularly if there are any payment issues. Work with us and we will work with you.
Low Cost Therapy Options
Don't let finances keep you from getting the help you need.
High insurance deductibles and lack of coverage for specialists is a problem for many people, especially when it comes to mental health care. It seems more private health insurance companies are not covering mental health, more clinicians are not taking insurance and even when policies do include therapy and you're able to find someone in your network, you may have to pay thousands of dollars to meet a deductible before you see any insurance benefit.
At Key Therapy you don't have to make a choice between paying for therapy or buying groceries. We have options!
Advanced Graduate Students (AGS)
An AGS is in the latter part of their education; has been trained in the art of therapy including assessments, treatment planning, therapeutic interventions and cultural and ethical considerations.
AGSs are highly supervised, have advanced training, are often enthusiastic in their practice, eager to help and to learn. AGSs can be mature adults who have had a variety of life experiences, previous related experience and/or a passion for the field or they can sometimes be younger individuals who are highly relatable to children and teens as well as young adults.
Cost per 60m Session: $40.
Marriage & Family Therapy Associate (MFTA)
If you are unsure about working with an AGS or feel you might need someone with a little more training, consider an MFTA.
An MFTA is a resident therapist under supervision that has graduated from their program and is working to complete their hours required for licensure in the state of Connecticut. An MFTA has a Master's degree, has already completed over 500 hours of therapy and over 100 hours of supervision as part of their graduate program. MFTAs are available at Key for a discounted rate, only slightly higher than our AGS, and at a significantly lower rate than a fully licensed clinician.
Cost per 60m Session: $65.
Coaching is not the same as therapy, but if you find you are struggling with normative life transitions; decision making, goal setting, career choices, failure to launch, communication, or even relationship issues, coaching might be an excellent option for you. Non-pathologizing, strengths-based and to the point. Coaching is also available at a lower per-session rate with discounts for packages and multiple sessions.
Cost per 60m Session: $90.
