The experienced and caring team at Alpha Behavioral Counseling Center is here to help you find a solution to whatever you are facing. During your search for a therapist, your focus should be on finding someone who can help you discover the root of your problem and strategize a plan for working toward a resolution. One common concern for those seeking counseling services is cost. Some practices accept counseling insurance, while others only take direct payment. At Alpha Behavioral Counseling Center, the goal is to make sure you get the help you need while providing complete transparency regarding fees and insurance options. Payment difficulties should not be the determining factor for seeking help.

Our Fees

At Alpha Behavioral Counseling Center, worrying about costs should not be a roadblock to treatment. That's why all counseling fees and insurance requirements are always transparent. When scheduling a visit, speak to the staff directly if you have any questions about the fee schedule or insurance for therapy sessions. Information is always accessible to both current and potential clients.

Pricing Information

The therapy fees at Alpha Behavioral Counseling Center are very competitive with other mental health practices in the Fresno area. The practice strives to provide counseling services to individuals in a variety of financial situations. To remain transparent, any potential client can contact the office directly for a direct service quote and explanation behind the rate. Sliding scale rates based on income are available to eligible individuals to make counseling services affordable and accessible to more clients.

Reduced Rate

With the goal of making sure the ability to pay does not exclude potential clients from seeking counseling services, Alpha Behavioral Counseling Center provides reduced rate options in some cases. These rates are based on a sliding scale and are available for specific time slots. If you have been avoiding counseling services due to lack of sufficient income, insurance, or another financial roadblock, contact the office to determine if you are eligible for a sliding scale reduced rate. The practice is happy to provide details about reduced rate criteria and other details to provide full cost transparency. Available sliding scale slots may be limited.

Pricing Details

On average, clients can expect to pay between $70 and $115 per counseling session at Alpha Behavioral Counseling Center. The sliding scale is based on income and fully disclosed before your visit, so you know what to expect. The practice may ask for specific information to determine if you qualify for a reduced rate and, if so, where you fall on the sliding scale. Lack of insurance coverage does not exclude clients from counseling services, and you are able to pay completely out of pocket for the fee if preferred.

Payment For Services

Alpha Behavioral Counseling Center offers flexible payment options for maximum accessibility. In addition to cash and check payments, the center also accepts Visa and Mastercard credit card payments. For clients with insurance coverage, the center works with the majority of major insurance companies to cover part of the cost of treatment, including Medi-Cal, CalViva, and Anthem Cross Medical at no charge. Some clients choose to self-pay rather than file insurance, and the center's staff can run cost estimates for you to help you determine the best course of action.

Accepted Insurance Plans

Although many clients choose to self-pay for counseling services, you may prefer to file with your company if you have one of the accepted counseling insurance plans. The out-of-pocket cost per session varies depending on the insurance coverage, and the office can help you navigate the process. A team member can help you understand common insurance terms, such as deductible, co-insurance, co-payment, and eligibility as they apply to your specific plan.

Alpha Behavioral Counseling Center may be considered in-network or out-of-network for your insurance. If the practice is out-of-network, the fee may still be covered partially or in full. Alpha Behavioral Counseling Center accepts the following insurance plans in-network:

  • Anthem Blue Cross — Medi-Cal

  • Cal-Viva
