Fees, payment, insurance, etc.

  • How much does a session cost?  

Our standard fee for a therapy session is 140€. Most people have weekly sessions, but less regular sessions are also possible, and just as effective in the long run. Session length is 50 minutes.​

  • What about neuropsychological assessment? ​

The fee for neuropsychological assessment depends on the complexity of the assessment and the report required. The price range for assessment is generally between 500€-1000€. For instance, a WISC assessment is 600€. 

 

  • How do we pay for sessions?  ​

We accept payment by credit card or cash at the end of each in-person session. For online payments, a link will be sent to pay via credit card after the session. Direct deposit via bank transfer is also possible. We do not accept cheque.  

  • Will my insurance cover the sessions? ​

Many of our patients have their sessions reimbursed with private insurance (mutuelle). The level of reimbursement depends on your specific contract. So if you have an insurer, it might be worth getting in touch with them to see what you’re entitled to. All our psychologists are fully registered to work with insurance, and we are happy to provide any documentation you might need to facilitate this process. Some the insurers we currently work with include:

 

 

  • Is it covered with a carte vitale? ​

Unfortunately, psychology sessions are not covered under the government health (carte vitale) system in France. We're hoping the French government introduces legislation to recognise the importance of psychological services, in line with the practices of many other developed nations.
