Sometimes life circumstances can lead to tight financial resources and difficulty paying bills. If you have concerns or are having difficulty paying for your treatment please speak with a member of our staff or your clinician about options that may be available to you. There are several methods that may assist you in managing and/or reducing the cost of your mental health treatment. The following section includes solutions that may be available to you as well as recommendations to help you reduce your out-of-pocket expenses.
Sliding Fee Scale
The sliding fee scale is available to income-eligible clients and eligibility is determined based on the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Income verification documents are required to apply and if approved applications are updated quarterly. If you'd like to apply to see if you are eligible for a reduced rate please contact our office by phone or email.
Reduced length/frequency sessions
We offer reduced-length sessions, 30-minutes instead of 45-minutes, and these sessions are billed at a prorated fee ($99.90 / 30-min or $150 / 45-min). Reduced-length sessions are available for individual, family, and couples therapy sessions however, we do not offer reduced-length intake or group therapy sessions.
We can also decrease the frequency of sessions, for example meeting every other week instead of weekly.
**These options may not be best suited for all clients as reducing frequency, or meeting time, may not be clinically recommended.
Flexible payment plans
If you are unable to pay at the time of service we offer payment plans to any client. Payment plans are flexible to meet your needs. You are able to specify the frequency of payments and payment amount deducted. Balances will incur a $25 interest fee (or 5% of the balance, whichever is greater) every 30 days the balance remains. Scheduling additional services will be put on hold for individuals with balances of $1,000 or greater.
Payment plans require a credit/debit card or bank account number to be kept on file and a plan to be set up that includes automatically debiting an agreed upon amount on a specific date(s) as determined by the patient.
Flexible spending and health savings accounts
If you have access to a flexible spending account (FSA) or a health savings account (HSA) we do accept these forms of payment. These accounts typically allow you to deduct a specified amount of money out of your paychecks prior to taxes being deducted to cover the cost of health (including mental health) related expenses. This will allow you to save the amount of money you typically would pay to taxes which means you pay less money out-of-pocket.
