Do you contract with insurance companies?

We are committed to your child's privacy, their confidentiality, and want you to have complete control over their health records. Submitting a mental health invoice for reimbursement carries a certain amount of risk to your child's confidentiality, privacy and future capacity to obtain health or life insurance or even a job. That is why we do not directly bill your insurance.

We can, upon request, provide you with receipts and a coded visit bill (called “super bills”) which you may submit to your insurance company for out-of-network reimbursement if you choose. We encourage you to check with your insurance regarding the specifics of your policy.

If you'd like to know your insurance coverage use our step-by-step guide in our Kid Matters FAQ - V2 - Updated 5/11/2022

What about a reduced fee scale?

We do offer a reduced fee based on family income and circumstances, which we will be happy to talk to you about when you give us a call.

Do you work with teenagers?

While our clinicians specialize in working with children 2-12 years old, we do have clinicians who are also trained in working with teenagers. Just mention that you have a teenager in the intake form and we'll get you paired up with the right clinician! 

We help anxious kids and frustrated parents. We serve Hinsdale & the Western Suburbs of Chicago.
