Trauma-based & Family Psychotherapy For Angry, Anxious, Depressed, and Frustrated Families

Understanding the Affordable Care Act’s Marketplace Insurance

Are you currently confused by the recent Marketplace insurance policies, rules, and regulations? If so, you are certainly not alone. Join the millions of everyday citizens, medical doctors, and mental health professionals (such as myself) who feel a bit overwhelmed by the change, policies, and rules. Multiple families have contacted me to ask for clarification regarding the new policies and the differences between the Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Catastrophic plans. There are 2 things that are important to keep in mind about these policies:

  1. You must apply (if you do not currently have insurance) before the end of the enrollment period
  2. You must apply before January 1, 2014 or be responsible for a tax cut of about $95 for an adult per household or $47 per child.

In the coming days, I will explain how the Affordable Care Act will affect mental health and autism spectrum disorders specifically. In the meantime, visit my sister site at PsychCentral/caregivers to learn about your options and some basics.


Stay informed!




As always, I wish you well

*CORONA VIRUS UPDATE1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

States across the nation are passing laws, reducing restrictions, and enacting new regulations to help support the transition from stay-at-home orders to the normal flow of life again.

To keep everyone at Anchored Child & Family Counseling safe, I will only be opening the office for in-person sessions 1 day of the week. The other days of the week will consist of teletherapy sessions until the mask wearing restrictions are reduced or eliminated and corona virus cases have gone down.

My office assistant and I will be monitoring insurance policies for any changes to corona-related cost share, copayment, and coinsurance policies. I will be checking and rechecking insurance policies to ensure you will be covered for teletherapy. At this time, all major insurance companies (UPMC, Highmark, Aetna, Optum/United, and Cigna) are continuing to provide coverage for teletherapy into September 2020.

Please continue to stay safe!
