Mental Health Access Program
We believe everyone should have access to the mental health care they need, regardless of their ability to pay full fee. To that end, SamaraCare established the Mental Health Access Progam (MHAP) that provides fee subsidy mental health counseling assistance, on a sliding scale pay basis, to individuals who are unemployed, lower income or otherwise not able to afford services they need and deserve (due to circumstances such as divorce, abuse, abandonment, death of a spouse). No one will be denied mental health services because of a lack of ability to pay. This does not mean that services are free. Rather, fees are discounted in a manner to make counseling more affordable. This arrangement also provides an opportunity for the client to be responsible for some payment that is esteeming to them. In FY 18, SamaraCare provide fee subsidies to 396 qualifying clients which amounted to $438,573 or the equivalent of 7.6 visits per client at no charge.
