fees & insurance
Fees are based on the services provided and are often determined by a pre-negotiated rate with your insurance provider. It is our goal to make counseling services available to all who need them. We accept in and out of network insurance plans, self-pay, and sliding scale. We are currently in network with:
- Beacon Health Options

We are also in partnership with Open Path Collective to provide services on a sliding fee scale.

**Please note that insurance REQUIRES a diagnosis and this diagnosis becomes a part of your permanent medical record. By providing your insurance policy, you are consenting to using your health insurance and providing diagnostic information to your insurance company. If you would like to know about receiving services without using insurance, please contact our offices.**
Good Faith Estimate
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
- Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
