What is a sliding scale fee schedule?
At GPS Psychology & Anxiety Clinic, we believe money should never stand in the way
of quality treatment. It is our passion and policy to provide essential mental health
services regardless of the patient’s financial circumstances. As such, we utilize a
sliding scale fee, which is a variable price schedule for mental health services,
dependent upon the patient’s ability to pay. For patients who do not have adequate or
pre-approved insurance or who wish to choose self-pay options, discounts may be
offered based upon household income and family size. Office staff will determine the
best payment options to meet each individual’s needs.
GPS Psychology & Anxiety Clinic is a clinical training site. As such, we can offer
treatment provided by highly qualified and trained mental health interns, under the
direct supervision of Dr. Gibson and his team.
Our talented graduate and doctorate-level students provide evidence-based
treatments to patients on a sliding scale fee basis (fee is based on your income, see
chart below). The cost is affordable and you don’t have to worry about the
constraints and controls of your insurance dictating the amount and type of
treatment you receive.
Dr. Gibson and his team will be involved in your treatment by ensuring that your
treatment plan is tailored to your needs and addresses your specific symptoms.
They will meet with your graduate student treatment provider weekly to review your
case and discuss how best to address each presenting problem. They also offer
daily feedback to the students and are here for any crises.
Additionally, if you need any biofeedback, neurofeedback, or psychological testing,
those services can be billed through your insurance. All graduate-level students
under Dr. Gibson's supervision have been nationally certified in biofeedback therapy.
Biofeedback is an evidence-based treatment that can be utilized for many symptom
presentations (Anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, etc). Biofeedback helps patients learn how to
control their stress and anxiety response. In conjunction with biofeedback therapy,
patients are taught cognitive restructuring techniques, which includes
psychoeducation and cognitive behavioral therapy.
In the far left column find the number of persons in your household. Then, go across the
row to find the income range that includes your annual gross income. Then, go down that
column to the bottom row to see your expected hourly rate for therapy based on the
education level of the provider.
*Dr. Gibson and his team of licensed providers do accept a limited number of sliding scale patients on their
personal caseloads. In the chart above, the rate for “Psychologist” is for treatment by Dr. Gibson or another
non-student, licensed member of his team.
