Online Psychiatric Care
Because the best couch is at home
For insurance patients: our physicians are in-network with Aetna, Cigna, Oscar, Oxford and United/Optum plans. However, we are not in-network with medicaid managed plans. Our therapist is in-network with all these plans and Medicare. However, we are not in-network with Medicaid or Medicaid managed plans. To get started, schedule a new appointment and choose the "Insurance" option. Next, enter your insurance information as directed. We will verify your benefits prior to your appointment.
If you're not using insurance: new appointments are $450 and follow up appointments are $250. Our therapists Patricia Sage-McLean LCSW-R charges $200 per session, Michele Hochberg LMHC charges $215 per session.
*Additional costs: Prior authorizations are charged $50. Any detailed forms that patients request that the doctor fill out are charged $200. Simple notes or letters confirming a diagnosis or treatment are free of charge. Doctors will not fill out disability paperwork unless treatment has been established for at least 2 months, and it is still at the discretion of the doctor.
*Cancellation/No Show fees: At Skypiatrist, your appointment time is guaranteed. We never double-book patients. Unfortunately, late cancelations cause holes in the schedule for which we have to charge. For new appointments, there is a $100 charge for canceling within 24 hours of the appointment time, or a $150 charge for missing the appointment without notice. For follow up appointments, there is a $50 charge for canceling within 12 hours of the appointment time, or a $75 charge for missing the appointment without notice.
