Welcome, to TelepsyOnline.com and Dr. Robert A. Marselle. 

Here contains important information about this office's professional services and business policies. Please read it carefully and write down any questions you might have so that we can discuss them. 

The cost for an online confidential video psychotherapy session is $150. 

A comprehensive psychological evaluation with psychometric testing is determined on a case by case basis and is only done in the Valencia office testing room. The cost is determined by the measurement instruments required, what type of report is generated, and is calculated on the amount of time required to complete our agreement. My fees are reasonable and lower than average for the State of California. 

If your case requires an affidavit or report or if I need to consult with an attorney or guardian ad litem, I will charge for the time necessary to complete the task. A charge will be made based on the amount of time needed for this service. Payment is expected at the end of each session or before a letter, court appearances or psychometrics testing start.

The considerations used in determining value are influenced by the type of evaluation, Medicare Fee for Service amounts, and complexity of test instruments required. There are significant time differences included with each procedure because of scoring and interpretation of each test and how the big picture is affected by the procedures. Dr. Marselle chooses tests for self-referred patients. A self-referred evaluation requires a pretest interview that determines the referral question(s). A referral question is a reason for testing. A pretest interview will either eliminate the need for testing or determine the measurement instruments necessary to answer specific issues and nuances. If your case requires an affidavit or letter(s) or if I need to consult with an attorney or guardian ad litem, I will charge for the time necessary to complete the task. A charge will be made based on the amount of time needed for this service. Payment is expected at the end of each session.  


I do not accept insurance as payment for services. Insurance companies are not dependable for timely payment for mental health services. Some are organized and professional while others are inconsistent. The reimbursement for services by all of the third party payers is based on a system that is incompatible with the realities of economics, diagnosing and healing. I do have provider numbers for both Medicare and Medi-Cal. I have been in these networks for years. The criteria for psychometric testing approval for those with Medicare is unrealistic and dated. The Medi-Cal system does not pay for services approved sporadically. You should also be aware that most insurance companies require you to authorize your physician provider to provide them with a clinical diagnosis. Sometimes your provider has to provide additional clinical information such as a copy of the psychological report (in rare cases). This information will become part of the insurance company files and will probably be stored in a computer. Though all insurance companies claim to keep such information confidential, I have no control over what they do with it once it is in their hands. In some cases, they may share the information with a national medical information databank. 

As a professional, I furthered my education to include many hours of study on the legal, ethical, and technical aspects of Telehealth to become a Certified Provider of these services. I use a vast knowledge base and skills to help you. This includes the following ideals and ethical standards of the American Psychological Association (APA). In your best interests, the APA puts limits on a relationship between a Psychologist and a client. I abide by these rules. Here are some of these limitations, so you will not think they are personal responses to you. First, I am a licensed clinical psychologist and a registered nurse, practicing professional psychological services including but not limited to psychotherapy, psychometrics, and reports. I do not practice law, medicine, or any other profession other than Psychology & Nursing. This consent is not for nursing services although it is impossible to remove the influence of years of experience as an RN in determining human needs and compassionate care. Therefore, I am not particularly trained to give you advice from these other professional viewpoints. Second, state laws and the rules of the APA require your evaluator to keep your discussions confidential (that is, private). I will not tell anyone else what you discuss, except in certain limited 

For services to begin an informed consent must be signed by you. The consent and other required documents are available for digital signature when you register online.
