Policies

Fees and Collection

Receiving the appropriate treatment should not be a financial burden. We provide services at an affordable, reduced fee on a sliding scale basis. Additional fee reductions are considered for individuals in multiple treatments (for example, individual and group therapy) or whose treatment recommendations include attending sessions more than one time per week. 

The Clinic’s policy is for the treating clinician to provide the patient with a monthly bill at the end of each month. Payment is due to your treating clinician within two weeks via check or the exact amount in cash (we cannot provide change). We do not accept money orders or credit cards.

Fees are determined by income, and can be discussed with your treating therapist at any point during treatment. Late payments and payment plans are discussed individually with your treating clinician. Please see the attached policy for more information. After you have had an opportunity to review and understand this policy, you will be asked to sign a form indicating that you have been notified of this policy.

If mailing a payment, please include a copy of the bill with your submission. This will ensure that your payment is promptly processed and accurately credited. Please make all checks payable to:

The Center Clinic
1922 F Street NW, Suite 103
Washington, DC 20052

Sorry, we do not accept insurance. The fee per session provided by the Center Clinic is typically lower than many insurance co-pays. Some patents, however, may arrange to submit claims to their insurance providers in order to seek some reimbursement. As insurance providers vary in what they will provide coverage for, please contact your provider for more information.


Collecting Assessment Fees

Half of the total amount of the assessment is due to the evaluator at the time of the first testing session. The remaining fee will be paid upon completion of the assessment; assessments end with a session offering feedback of the results.


Attendance and Cancellations

The Center Clinic has a 24-hour cancellation policy. Payment will be required for cancellations not made 24 hours in advance. Rescheduled appointments can be made in advance for anticipated cancellations with no charge.
