Fees & Insurance


Our non-insurance fees are based on therapist experience and licensing status. The non-insurance fee for group therapy is $175/month, which covers all scheduled sessions in a month.


All therapists at Chicago Counseling Services are in-network with  Cigna, Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO & Blue Choice.  

Nearly all of our therapists are in network with USHIP, OPTUM/United, Aetna & Aetna UCHP (University of Chicago Health Plan)

Therapists are out-of-network with all other insurance plans at this time. We abide by the negotiated rates for insurance plans that we are in network with. For clients with BCBS, Aetna, Optum/United, and Cigna, the portion of the fee that is covered by the insurance is determined by their specific plan. For clients with USHIP, there is a $10 fee per session and for clients with UCHP, there is a $25 fee per session.*


Payment Methods

At the time of booking your first appointment we will request your email address to send you paperwork through our secure server. Part of the paperwork includes keeping a credit card on file with us. At the end of each month, we will process your card for any fees due, including session fees, co-pays, and charges for missed appointments or late cancellations. For clients using Flexible Spending Accounts or Health Savings Accounts (FSA/HSA), an itemized receipt will be provided after payment is received if needed. We can make special accommodations for payment if necessary - just ask us!

*There are additional fees for late cancellation or missed appointments. We cannot bill insurance under these circumstances. Specific details on these policies are provided upon request.
