Cost of Services:

Our goal is to provide services to all students regardless of insurance status. Services are provided at no-cost to families whether or not a student has insurance. Insurance is billed whenever possible to help cover the cost of care. We may send a bill for mental health service co-pays if a student has private insurance.
