Fees & Insurance
CRT is committed to serving all patients, regardless of their race, color, sex, national origin, disability, religion, or sexual orientation. Patients will be provided with services, regardless of their ability to pay. We offer a sliding scale fee for individuals who require financial assistance, as well as payment plans. Treatment services are also provided through various grants and foundations for those who qualify. The Request for Financial Assistance Form is available through our Intake Coordinator.
The fee for individual, dyadic, and family therapy sessions is $120/hour. Group therapy rates are $85/hour. Our therapists are also in network for BCBS PPO. We will work with you to submit claims to other health insurance providers, though we do not bill those therapy services directly. At the time of your intake, we will provide you with further information regarding out-of-network insurance billing. Additionally, CRT maintains contracts with the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). We provide therapy services for children while they are in the foster care system and after their adoption. For more information regarding the services provided through DCFS, please contact our Intake Coordinator.
Most evaluations conducted at CRT include psychological/developmental and medical components. We can directly bill BCBS and Medicaid for the physical examination, otherwise this is typically billed at $375. Psychological/developmental testing can be covered through our contracts with DCFS or paid for by families, at a rate of $200/hour. While we do not directly bill insurance for the psychological/developmental testing, we are happy to work with you if you decide to submit the claim directly to your insurance company.
CRT's pediatricians provide medication management services for children with ADHD, anxiety, depression, and other issues. The frequency of appointments is determined in consultation with Dr. Messer. Telephone consultation is available for established patients in appropriate circumstances. Medication management services can be billed directly to Medicaid and BCBS. Families with other insurance will be provided with a detailed bill to submit to their insurance company. A sliding scale program is available for those without insurance as well. Fees are determined based on the complexity of each visit — a detailed schedule of fees can be accessed by request.
The fee for Pre-Adoptive Consultation/Education, which includes a detailed review of prenatal drug/alcohol exposure, medical information, family history photos, and videos, is $375.
CRT staff is available for consultation via telephone, secure video conference, and for educational or other meetings. These services are provided at a rate of $200/hour.
