Sliding Scale Fee Discount Program

From the beginning, the mission of Complete Wellness has been to provide the highest quality services to those struggling with issues related to mental illness regardless of ability to pay. To provide some organization and structure to this aspect of our mission, we have adopted the Sliding Scale Fee Discount Program

The Sliding Scale Fee Discount Program was created to ensure that comprehensive mental health services are available and accessible to uninsured and underinsursed patients by providing an affordable fee structure that is in accordance with federal regulations.


Eligibility for the Sliding Scale Fee Discount

Any individual may apply for the Sliding Scale Fee Discount; however, eligibility in the program is based on the household annual income and family size. Only individuals living in households with income below 450% of the Federal Poverty Level may qualify for a Sliding Scale Fee discount. 

The Sliding Scale Fee Discount is only available to individuals and families who are uninsured or under-insured.

As part of the intake process, if an individual is uninsured, the individual will be informed of the availability of the Sliding Scale Fee Discount and explain the paperwork needed to complete the application.
