Paying for Treatment
Our services are reasonably priced. We accept cash, check, and most forms of insurance. Usually, insurance only pays for a portion of the services received, but we will bill them for you, and help to develop a payment plan you can live with.
Afford the treatment you want with financing options from Columbia Treatment Services. Along with competitive prices, we have flexible payment schedules, a sliding fee scale program, and discounts for those who pay for the program in full. We also contract with numerous insurance companies to help cover costs.

QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR BILL
What billing or insurance information will I receive?
We will contact your insurance company to determine the amount they will pay. We will develop a financial contract with you for the remainder.
How long will it take to get things settled with the insurance company?
Generally, it takes from 30 to 45 days to obtain payment from an insurance carrier. Sometimes it may take longer if appeals are ncessary. This happens "behind the scenes" so as long as you maintain your agreed payments, insurance payments will not have an impact on your payemnt status.
How much does insurance pay?
Altough insurance plans vary, most of them pay between 50 and 80 % of the cost of treatment. The remaining costs
are divided into "easy to manage" payments.
I received a notice that my insurance company has paid on my bill -- but I can't understand how they calculated their payment amount. Do you know?
We have an insurance specialist on staff who can look into individual cases and help you understand the explanation of benefits from your insurance company.
I dont have insurance. How much will treatment cost me?
Although the cost varies depending on the particular program, most payments range from $165 to $228 per month. In some cases, people may qualify for a sliding fee scale program with payments as little as $100 per month (SFS based on financial need).
