Insurance and Sliding Scale

The actual amount your insurance company pays for the session and the amount the client pays are decided by the insurance company. If the client has a co-pay when seeing a medical doctor, that co-pay is more than likely the same amount for therapy. If a percentage of the allowable is to be paid, that amount can be calculated IF the client calls the insurance company to find out what the specific benefits are to aid collection of the appropriate co-pay or % paid for the service AT EACH SESSION. Preference is to not wait until billing is responded to by insurance. The client must make preparations to pay towards the deductible and copay at every session.

 

If you don't have any insurance coverage then the charges are based on the sliding scale listed below  

Most clients pay less than the billed amount because insurance sets a cap on the amount to be charge as an in-network or out-of-network provider, or the client and the provider negotiate a sliding scale fee, if the client qualifies.

Reduced Fee
Community Oriented Reduced fee services are available on a limited basis.

To provide the best possible services for all clients, regardless of their income, Miller Counseling Services operates on a sliding fee scale.  This means that the lower your income, the lower your fee.  All clients are asked to bring proof of income to verify where you are on this sliding fee scale.  Proof of income includes pay stubs, child support stubs, governmental aid stubs, social security statements, or income tax summaries.  Annual household income is used.  Typically payment is expected at each session.  If this does not work for you, please let us know and we can make alternative arrangements, for example, paying once a month if that is how you are paid from your job.  Exceptions may be made at the sole discretion of the staff for extreme circumstances such as unusually large medical bills with proper documentation of such bills. 

Clients with an annual (household) income would pay the following per session
