Donations of any size help SCA reach more of them
Self pay allows a greater degree of privacy than do managed care plans that require the therapist to submit a diagnosis for their approval, often along with a treatment plan and scheduled progress reports. Self pay clients also have more freedom to see a therapist of their choosing for as many sessions as they see fit.
SCA sets fees to adequately compensate quality therapists while making their services accessible to as wide a segment of our society as possible. Self pay clients often schedule two or more weeks between sessions to make them more affordable.
In some cases, clients receive financial assistance from concerned individuals or organizations. While SCA has no formal sliding scale, therapists can, at their discretion, ask the clinical directors to adjust a client's fee because of a demonstrated financial challenge.
