At this time, Monarch Counseling Service is undergoing the credentialing and contracting for all major insurance providers as well as Minnesota Health Care Programs. A list of our insurance partners is below.
We also have a fee-for-service payment expected at the beginning of our appointment. First-time office visits are longer (90 minutes) due to assessment, treatment planning or diagnostic evaluations at a minimum fee of $100. Follow-up appointments are generally 45-50 minutes in length with a minimum fee of $75. We do provide a sliding fee scale for those who are limited in their ability to pay this amount.
Despite the best efforts of the client and therapist, it is possible that there may be regression upon implementation of treatment before progress is made. We will be discussing possible risks associated with treatment (increase in negative behaviors, family/marital discord, suicidal ideation, mitigating circumstances in extended family systems that may lead to violent behavior, etc). Also, the recommendations and their effects are intertwined and difficult to predict (effect of medication on mood or behaviors, effect of family/parental mental or medical issues, client attrition, amount of effort of compliance). Limits of confidentiality will be reviewed at initial session.
