Learn more from the group leader, Dr. Margaret Areizaga:
Intake: An abbreviated intake is required for families that are new to MPG who plan to submit for out-of-network reimbursement. The fee for the abbreviated intake for patients new to MPG is $150. It is a brief session with the parent(s), and may include an observation of the child at the clinician’s discretion. The purpose of the intake is to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the behaviors of the child, identify the challenges and goals of the parent(s) for the group, and assess the parent-child relationship. The intake can provide a diagnosis for qualified parents to use for out-of-network reimbursement from insurance for the group fee.

Cancellation policy: There are no refunds or makeup dates for the group.
Group fees, including the intake fee, are to be paid for the entire series upfront. You cannot pay after the group is over or week to week. Since this is a closed group with only a limited number of parents per group, there are no make-ups, refunds or cancellations. We can provide a receipt for parents to submit for out-of-network reimbursement. The CPT code for group parent training is 90849-95. The parent attending the group must be the identified patient with a diagnosis for the receipt, which can be covered further during intake; we cannot use a child’s diagnosis. Reimbursement is only available for parents residing in NY, NJ, CT, PA, and FL where our psychologists are licensed.
