Fees & Policies
Contact us at 866-825-7420 or email us at admissions@betterliving to ask questions. Level of treatment needed is generally determined by a recent assessment, current provider recommendations, and assessment as you begin treatment.
For many, Day Treatment is a large but important investment in the rest of their lives. The cost of Day Treatment is approximately $3,600 a week. We offer a limited number of Treatment Scholarships to qualified individuals. Treatment Scholarship recommendation must come from your current outpatient or one of our staff once you have entered treatment. Treatment Scholarships may substantially reduce the cost of treatment for you or your loved one.
Many individuals come from out of town when they are seeking Day Treatment (IOP Intensive) level care. We can help arrange discounts at local hotels for you during your treatment period. Please note that while many individuals believe that they can go to a residential or inpatient unit in order to have their housing covered during treatment – this is not the case. The level of care that you are provided, from a reputable facility, is dependent upon the level of care needed. You will not be able to have your insurance cover costs for residential treatment if residential treatment is not the appropriate level of care for you. Additionally, inpatient units are typically only for stabilization of immediate psychiatric crises – they most often do not provide specialized types of care nor will they house an individual who is not in need of inpatient level care.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Treatment
Intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) is approximately $1800 per week. We offer a limited number of Treatment Scholarships to qualified individuals. Treatment Scholarship recommendation must come from your current outpatient or one of our staff once you have entered treatment. Treatment Scholarships may substantially reduce the cost of treatment for you or your loved one.
Individual Therapy Sessions
If we have available spots for outpatient treatment with our therapists, our rate per hour is $150.
Out-of-Network Provider & Insurance Reimbursement
We are considered an out-of-network provider with all insurance companies currently. Many providers will accept and reimburse out-of-network services. We will work with you to file forms with your insurance to establish the necessity of your recommended level of treatment. We also provide Superbills to help you obtain reimbursement from your insurance company. All costs are expected to be paid prior to the upcoming week of treatment, installment plans prior to treatment may be made available. You are responsible for the costs of treatment, and all reimbursement is between you and your insurance company. All clients are required to keep a credit card and release for charge on file for services, charges are run at least a week prior to the upcoming treatment week. This allows our clinicians time to prepare any applications for scholarships or otherwise needed plans to assist you in completing your treatment goals.
Though treatment at the Day and IOP levels varies significantly based on the individual, their ability to progress independently, and other diagnoses you may have along with an anxiety disorder – we provide a general guideline that most Day Treatment stays are less than a month and most intensive outpatient (IOP) level treatment is in the range of four to six weeks. We do occasionally have clients who progress much more quickly through treatment. Treatment progress is determined by assessment, therapist observation, and recommendations provided for further treatment and outpatient treatment based on these factors. If you would like to know more about the types of changes our clients typically see following treatment, please see our Treatment Outcomes page.
For those who may be coming from a distance for Day Treatment or intensive outpatient (IOP) level treatment, please let us know and we will work with you to arrange discounted rates for stays at local hotels for your treatment period. Cost of lodging is not included in treatment costs.
24-Hour Cancellation Policy
If you are unable to attend a scheduled session, please provide at least 24 hours notice prior to your session. If you provide more than 24 hours notice before a reschedule/cancel your fee will be fully refunded. If you provide less than 24 hours notice prior to a reschedule/cancel you will be charged at full price for your session. This is also the policy for Day Treatment and intensive outpatient (IOP) levels of treatment.
