Coverage will depend on provider, services received, and insurance plan specifics. We will provide you with whatever assistance is required in helping you receive the benefits to which you are entitled; however, you (not your insurance company) are responsible for full payment of fees. 

Clients are encouraged to call their insurance carrier to verify benefits, network coverage, and to receive an authorization. We encourage clients to ask the following:

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?

  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?

  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?

  • What is my deductible and has it been met?

  • Do I have to pay a copay or coinsurance rate?

Please bring your insurance card and a photo ID to your first appointment and notify us of any changes to your insurance coverage in the future.

Insurance, cash, check, and all major credit cards are accepted for payment.


You will be expected to pay for each session at the time it is held unless you have insurance coverage that requires another arrangement. 

Clients receive monthly statements in the mail with their outstanding balance. Clients can make payments as follows:

  • In Person: You may pay via check, cash, or credit card at the front desk prior to your appointment.

  • By Telephone: Our support staff is available to take credit card payments over the phone M-F between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.

  • By Mail: You may send cash and check payments to our Northfield Office. Please address checks to Secure Base Counseling Center, LLC, 570 Professional Drive, Northfield, MN 55057.


We also accept private pay/out-of-pocket payments and payment from Healthcare Savings Accounts (HSA's). 


If you have any questions about insurance coverage, payments, or billing, please contact our office at (507) 301-3412 and ask to speak with our billing department. We are more than happy to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
