SamaraCare wants everyone to have affordable access to the high-quality mental health counseling and psychiatric services they need regardless of their insurance status or financial circumstances. For that reason, we created the Mental Health Access Program (“MHAP”), which provides reduced cost care to individuals, couples and families who are uninsured, underinsured or experiencing financial hardship. The reduced client fee per visit is determined using a sliding fee scale which is based largely on the applicant’s household income and size. Other extenuating circumstances are also considered. The MHAP does NOT cover the entire cost of mental health services; clients are still responsible for paying a portion of their bill.
Those with insurance may utilize the MHAP and submit an application but only after they have exhausted any and all insurance benefits. Please note the MHAP cannot be used to pay for deductibles, co-pays, co-insurance, or spenddowns as these are contractual obligations with insurance companies. Also, the MHAP cannot be used to cover missed appointment charges.
To see if you qualify for reduced cost care, review the MHAP application and discuss this with your care provider and the business office staff at 630.357.2456 prior to your first appointment.
