Behavioral Health Insurance & Billing

Payment for Adult and Child/Adolescent Behavioral Health Treatment

Serenity BHS serves all individuals who are eligible for treatment. Individuals are required to pay a co-payment or fee toward the deductible, at the time of service, based on their insurance plan. If the individual is uninsured, he/she may qualify for the State Assistance Program; individuals will be asked to pay an amount determined on a sliding fee scale, based on income.

If the treatment procedure is not covered 100% by insurance, Medicaid or Medicare, then SBHS will ask for co-payment or deposit to be paid when the individual check-in in for the appointment. A representative from SBHS may contact you prior to the appointment date to make sure all of your information is correct.
