Is paying a therapist the difference between their rate and what insurance covers reasonable?

I see a therapist on a regular basis. I have health insurance with a small copay for these visits. Some time ago, my therapist asked that I pay the difference between the fee they bill for (their full rate) and the negotiated rate that my health insurance pays to them. This increases my out-of-pocket costs dramatically. Is there something odd about this arrangement?

My doctor’s office is becoming a medial boutique!

Our doctor is dropping all insurance and Medicare participation but isn’t telling his patients until they show up at his office, or if they just happen to read his web site. Should we do anything about it? [more inside]
