Fees and Insurance

In most cases, after an initial consultation, we apply for health insurance coverage of your therapy.

Each session lasts 50 minutes and typically takes place once a week.

The rate per session is derived from the current „Gebührenordnung für Psychotherapeuten“ (GOP), which is 92.50€/session.

Private health Insurance

 

Private health insurance companies usually cover the cost of therapy. This also applies if you work as an official in the public service sector.

 

Please make sure to look up your insurance’s conditions for coverage. You might find application forms online and information about how many sessions are covered in accordance with your respective contract.

 

Public health Insurance

Because we are a private practice, it is not possible for us to bill your health insurance directly.

 

Publicly insured patients can, however, apply for the,

„Kostenerstattungsverfahren“ (§13 Abs. 3 SGB V), through which a reimbursement may be made possible.

 

Your payment may be reimbursed if the following conditions apply: 

 

  • there is an immediate need for psychotherapy

  • you cannot find a placement in the foreseeable future with a therapist holding a public health insurance „seat.“

 

Please keep in mind that public health insurance companies are currently asking for a wide array of forms and verifications before granting a reimbursement for therapeutic treatment.

 

Contact us for more information or click here for further explanation in German.

Self payment

 

If, for reasons personal or otherwise, you decide to pay for your treatment out-of-pocket, therapy can begin right away, without any further delays or formalities.

 

Treatment costs that are not covered by your health insurance are deductible from your taxes (in a German tax declaration) if they exceed a certain amount.

Couples counselling

 

Currently, no health insurance companies cover the costs of couples counselling. Therefore, sessions can begin immediately.
