Good question! Along with our employee benefit, Samata Health offers a version of our platform that’s open to everyone, where users can book sessions with our therapists at discounted rates.
Once you complete your last employer-sponsored therapy session, your account will automatically switch over to our public-facing interface. There, you can continue scheduling sessions with your therapist on the platform as usual. However, for each session, you will be responsible for paying your therapist’s discounted rate listed in their profile. You can pay using a credit card, debit card or your FSA card!
Therapy sessions scheduled on our platform are currently self-pay only, so you won’t be able to use your insurance. However, our therapists all agree to treat Samata Health clients for less than half the average cost per therapy session in New York City. The average rate on our platform is $119 per therapy session, vs. the NYC average rate of $250 per session. Many therapists will also offer sliding-scale (i.e., further discounted) rates, especially for existing clients.
