Treatment Fees

Affiliated outpatient services are billed to the patient's insurance plan. This includes the initial intake assessment, individual and family therapy sessions, and medication consultations and ongoing visits. Patients/families will be financially responsible for all applicable co-payments based on their insurance plans. Many insurance plans are accepted by the North Shore-LIJ Health System. If insurance is not available, fees for evaluation and treatment are offered on a sliding scale, based upon documented income.                

Outreach & Education for Professionals

In addition, the RAP Program staff provide educational trainings to mental health and education professionals in the Queens/Long Island area (subject to availability).  If you or your professional group are interested in scheduling a training, please contact Dr. Andrea Auther at
