*We require a credit card to be kept on file for all online services.

**Providers may have availability to offer a "sliding scale" fee, meaning a reduced rate for clients with financial need. A select number of these slots are available.

At this time, only some of our providers participate with insurance companies. This includes:

  • Aetna (Jesse Matthews and Brian Hickman)

  • Cigna (Jesse Matthews only)

  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield (Jesse Matthews, Erin Matthews, and Brian Hickman)

    • (WE DO NOT ACCEPT Independence Blue Cross (IBX) plans, including Personal Choice or Keystone Health Plan East)

  • Imagine Healthcare (Jesse Matthews only)

  • Medicare (Jesse Matthews only)

  • Quest Behavioral Health (Jesse Matthews only)

*Matthews Counseling, LLC makes no guarantees that your insurance will be accepted or will cover services, whether this includes clients using insurance or those claiming through out-of-network benefits. It is your responsibility to know your insurance benefits and to pay for any charges that insurance does not. This includes notifying your provider in a timely manner if insurance changes or is terminated.

**Before scheduling an appointment, your provider will discuss all of this with you and answer any questions.
