There is no charge for initial phone consultation. Additional considerations of reduced fees will be made for clients who qualify for 30 minute sessions or who are willing and able to come to counseling with a 24 hour notification.

Fees are due at the time of service by cash, check (made out to Joelle L. Drader) or debit/credit card.


Insurance & Billing:
I currently accept McLaren and Meridian Health Plan insurances. If you are a private pay client, payment (cash, check-payable to Joelle Drader, or debit/credit card) is due at the time of service. When there is no insurance billing, no information is shared with the Medical Insurance Bureau (MIB) or with any third party without expressed and written permission from the client. Additionally, some mental health services qualify for the tax advantage of using your Health Savings Account (HSA) or your Flexible Spending Account (FSA). Clients should consult their plan manager or accountant for specific covered services. A receipt for services provided will be made available should a client choose to seek reimbursement on his/her own. If I am ordered by the court to appear to testify regarding your care, a fee of $200/hour will be billed for preparation and court time, in addition to travel expenses.
