Pricing and Insurance Information

Our normal substance use disorder (SUD) counseling fee scale


Can I use my HSA or FSA?

You can use Health Savings Accounts or Flexible Spending Accounts. This can be a way to pay for the services we provide at Gem City Counseling Center, LLC. For your HSA, simply pay with your check or debit card. We can provide you with a receipt so you can make a claim if you use your FSA.

Benefits of Self-Pay

Clients who pay directly for their counseling needs gain the following benefits:
- You gain confidentiality and privacy. If you use insurance, your insurance company has the right to review your clinical records.
- You get to choose the right counselor for your personal concerns.
- You do not need to worry about whether further sessions will be approved (you are in charge, not the insurance company).
- You will likely feel more responsible and invested in the counseling process and might even see results quicker due to increased motivation.

Canceling or Rescheduling

Appointments are reserved specifically for you. As a courtesy to your counselor and others who might want your appointment time let us know if you are unable to keep your appointment. If you do not notify by phone 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time, you agree to pay a cancellation fee. The cancellation fee is $115. We suggest scheduling your appointment when responsibilities (work, children, etc.) will not interfere, or be willing to pay the cancellation fee. If you miss your appointment without notification or develop a pattern of canceling you may be asked to pre-pay future sessions or service may not be provided.


Payment Responsibility

Payment for services at Gem City Counseling Center is required at the time of services. Payment for theses services can be made by cash, check/money order or by credit/debit card. Gem City Counseling Center does not keep cash on hand to make change. There is a $50 fee for returned checks.
