Frequently Asked Questions

What insurance does Skylight accept?

We are in network for Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO plans. As many individual plans are different and with varying benefits for mental health coverage, we strongly encourage all potential clients to contact their insurance company and confirm benefits before meeting with one of our counselors.


If you have a different insurance plan you are able to pay the full cost of each visit out of pocket and we can provide regular statements so you may submit for any out of network benefits you may have.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost per session varies from $130-$200 depending on the experience level of the therapist. You can ask the therapist what their out of pocket rate is.


Additionally, if you plan to pay out of pocket you will be given an estimate for cost of service verbally and in writing from your therapist. For full information regarding estimates please see our page regarding the No Surprises Act.


If you plan to use insurance you would be responsible for your deductible and any copay or co-insurance you may have. Each insurance plan is different so it is best to contact your insurance company to better assess what you may owe per visit before getting started.

Does Skylight have a sliding scale option?

Yes, we have interns who are able to meet for $20 or less on a first come first serve basis.


Does Skylight offer in-person therapy?

Currently, almost all of our sessions are being conducted via telehealth. We only have a limited amount of availability for in person meetings in our Evanston and Loop locations.


We are only able to offer telehealth visits to clients who are in Illinois due to current licensure laws.
