Insurance Company

* Before Ellie Family Services can begin providing services to any client, we MUST have the insurance carrier, member ID # and group number as it appears on their member ID card. For example, if a client has PMAP coverage, we will need the specific PMAP plan information (insurance provider name, member ID and group #), before we can schedule an intake. If a client has straight Medical Assistance, we will just need their MA/PMI #

As soon as we receive a referral, Ellie staff will begin processing and verifying insurance coverage. If a client has "inactive" insurance, we will not be able to schedule an intake until we have confirmed that insurance is active. If a client has a PMAP plan, and we do not have the plan name, member ID and group numbers, we will not be able to schedule an intake. We will work with you, the referral source, to work on ensuring that coverage is in place. Thank you for working with us. We appreciate the support and assistance in coordination.

Rates & Insurance

Ellie Family Services is in network with many major insurance companies. Please call our office to see what insurance benefits are covered for your specific needs. Traditionally most therapy sessions are covered. There are benefits to not billing your insurances. Insurance companies require a diagnosis which is recorded into your permanent medical record. While this is not a huge concern for most, it is important to understand how this can impact you and your future coverages of insurance. One of our providers can help you navigate through using insurance or paying for services on your own.

Our rates vary between $80-$175 an hour for most services and we also offer a sliding fee scale for clients who meet specific income guidelines. If you are interested in learning more about the cost of our services, please call us today at 651.313.8080.
