MAKING A DIFFERENCE - COUNSELING SERVICES
Each person receives services suited to his or her condition in a professional treatment environment regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, language, age, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, religion, spiritual beliefs, degree of disability or handicapping condition, or income level/ability to pay.
Making a Difference, Inc. relies on fee-for-service payments to provide professional counseling services. Several options for payment of services are available: Medicaid, Medicare, private insurance, and adjusted fee assistance.
Medicaid-insured children under 21 are completely covered by Medicaid payments.
Medicaid-insured adults are charged a $3.00 copayment for each service.
Insurance allowable fees and client responsibility for payments vary by insurance plan and will be discussed during the admission process.
Availability to bill Medicare is limited by available providers and usually covers 80% of the cost of services.
The agency accepts several insurance plans, but not all. Before starting services it is important to make sure we accept your insurance plan. We can assist you in finding an approved provider if we do not accept your insurance or if other options would be more appropriate for your situation.
We attempt to reduce barriers that may limit access to services.
Barriers may include financial, physical, transportation, location of service, culture, religion, language, intellectual abilities, stigma, and discrimination.
Please inform any agency staff if you have special considerations that may hinder your access to services. We will make reasonable efforts to accommodate any special needs you may have. You can ask about our Sliding Fee Discount Program if you are in need of financial assistance in order to receive services.
