Frequently Asked Questions

How much does counseling cost?

Our standard fees for a 50 minute counseling session are $180 - $200 for a therapist with a Master's or Doctoral degree.

Does Cornerstone accept insurance?

Counseling sessions are often covered by insurance. Cornerstone is in-network for Blue Cross Blue Shield and AETNA PPO policies and Magellan.

Insurance Accepted:



Most other insurance providers offer some out-of-network benefits, though the coverage is usually less than it would be for an in-network provider. For any HMO policy, a client would need to obtain a referral from their Primary Care Physician, and CCCOC is happy to assist with that process.

Please note that at this time, Cornerstone does not accept any type of public aid, including Medicare or Medicaid




What if I don’t have insurance that covers mental health care?

If a client does not have insurance and or demonstrates financial need, he or she may be eligible for our CAPS program. If interested in learning more about our CAPS program, please contact our main office and request for more information. Our CAPS program is based on a sliding fee scale and an application must be completed to be considered for the program.
