Fees, Insurance & Financial Assistance

Committed to affordable, accessible care.

At The Brookline Center, our doors are open. We are committed to keeping care accessible and affordable. At any point during your care at The Brookline Center, you are always welcome to speak with our intake coordinator and registration and billing departments, who will who will help you understand what fees and insurance coverage are applicable.

Fees

For Brookline residents, we keep fees as low as possible so that cost won’t be a barrier to care. For those living outside Brookline, we may offer some fee reductions for particular services. The intake coordinator can explain the fees associated with your care.

Insurance & Financial Assistance

Many of our services—including individual and group therapy—are covered by insurance, including MassHealth and Medicare. Other services may be free or offered on a sliding scale. Services that are not covered by insurance are considered “fee-for-service” and are paid directly by clients or client families.

As a new client, if you do not have insurance or adequate coverage, our registration and billing office staff can help you understand payment options and apply for financial assistance at the time of your first appointment. Once you are a client, if you need to access financial assistance, please speak with your therapist.

Payment

If you have health insurance, please bring your insurance card with you to your first appointment. The Brookline Center will submit your coverage claim on your behalf. You may be responsible for co-pays or deductibles, depending on your insurance plan. For co-pays and other service payments, we accept cash, check, and major credit cards.
