How Much Do Mental Health Services & Testing Cost?

Costs can vary depending on your specific healthcare plan’s mental health coverage and personalized treatment needs. The following are average costs for therapy, though they may vary by location and other variables. Therefore, they may not reflect the actual cost of treatment or what you may pay.

For example, In the United States, the typical cost of psychotherapy ranges from $100 to $2003 a session, dependent upon the state and the length of the session. In addition, you’ll most likely have a co-pay with health insurance, which can range from a few dollars to $50 or more every session.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) sessions are typically 45+ minutes long and cost between $100 and $200 per session, while Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) usually consists of a weekly individual therapy session, a weekly group therapy session, and weekly phone conversations. DBT costs vary depending on the type of services rendered.

Such factors, like whether the therapist is in-network or out of network, can influence your out-of-pocket cost.

Even with insurance, you will normally have to pay some or all of your medical expenditures until your total medical expenses reach the deductible. Then, depending on your plan, you may be required to pay a co-pay or coinsurance for each treatment.

Some therapists will work with patients on a sliding scale for those who do not present insurance. If you find a therapist who offers a sliding scale payment plan, they will most likely base the cost of your sessions on your income. This sliding scale can also vary from therapist to therapist.
