INSURANCE
& FEES

Dr. Cooper charges $165 for the initial intake session, and $150 for subsequent sessions.
This office accepts cash, check and credit/debit cards. There is a convenience fee for using a credit/debit card.

FEES FOR “NO-SHOWS” AND LATE CANCELLATIONS

Dr. Cooper sees nine clients per day and has a waiting list. A missed appointment is a missed opportunity for someone else who may be in need. Please be courteous and provide a 24 notice if you will not be able to make your appointment on the scheduled date and time.

Cancellations less than 24 hours prior to the appointment will incur a $70 fee. This fee must be paid prior to scheduling any further appointments. Insurance companies do not reimburse this office for missed appointments, therefore, you will be responsible for the fee.

If you miss a scheduled appointment, any future appointments that you have scheduled may be canceled. To prevent your future appointments from being canceled, please call us as soon as possible. Frequent “no-shows” will result in not being scheduled for future appointments.”

ADMINISTRATIVE, COURT & TESTING FEES

Time spent by Dr. Cooper in any administrative services including correspondence to or consultation with attorneys, physicians, or other mental health professionals, and any requested reports will be billed at a rate of $100 per hour, with a 15 minute minimum charge.

These fees cannot be filed on insurance and must be paid at the time of service, in addition to your appointment fee or co-pay. This administrative fee does not apply for correspondence to your primary care physician regarding your/your child’s T.O.V.A. results. 

Under certain circumstances Dr. Cooper will testify or appear in court. Should you need Dr. Cooper for court, a $1500 retainer fee is required no later than one week prior to the scheduled court date. Time spent for court appearances, providing court testimony, court preparation time, or records will be billed at $200 per hour. Travel time will be billed at the same rate. Any additional time not covered by the retainer fee will be billed and is the responsibility of the client or the client’s legal guardian. 

Dr. Cooper provides intelligence testing and personality testing under certain circumstances. Testing is billed at a rate of $150 per hour, including the time for interpreting results and report writing. Depending on the type of testing needed, this could range from 10 to 20 hours of billable time.
