What my insurance pays - not bad!

I just called Blue Cross/Blue Shield and found out from the horse's mouth, so to speak, that BC/BS pays $194.70 per 50 minute visit with PhD, along with my $10 copay, that comes to a grand total of $204.70 per 50 minute visit, which the hospital takes in.

Of course, they pay the PhD a salary, not per patient fee, so I have no idea what she really makes! I asked her about private therapy and she said she's about to close her practice; has no openings. Don't know what to think!

> Whoa!! My therapist's practice charges $150 a session, but like others, they have a deal with the insurance company so she does get only about $68. Sometimes I think that's ridiculously low--and sometimes I think she's overpaid.
