SLIDING FEE SCALE
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Sliding Fee Scale?
InnerSourced Solutions, LLC offers affordable counseling / therapy and other programs and services through the use of the sliding fee discount program to uninsured and under insured qualified individuals and families. Eligibility is based on family size and family income. The Sliding Fee Discount Program Scale is based on the annual definition of federal poverty provided by the Department of Health and Human Services, and is divided into four categories: A, B, C, D, and E.
This program works in part, in accordance with the Federal Poverty Guidelines, which can be found here.
