Aurora Mental Health Center Sliding Scale and Standard Rates for the Top 15 Billing Codes

AuMHC accepts most major commercial insurance. We do not discriminate in the provision of services based on ability to pay, whether payment for those services would be made under Medicare, Medicaid, or CHP. No one is denied access to services due to their inability to pay.

If you do not have insurance, we offer sliding scale rates to individuals who qualify based on Federal Poverty Guidelines of family size and income. The Sliding Fee Scale** (also referred to as the Fee Schedule) is applied uniformly, consistently, and without prejudice. The AuMHC Standard Rates for the top 15 services provided at AuMHC, as well as the Sliding Fee Scale, are posted below. Final determination of sliding fee scale is through AuMHC and the below is for approximate fees only.

How to find your fee: Find your annual household income in the first table below on the row with your number of household members. (Keep in mind that when we say “household”, we mean anyone that you would file taxes with, even if you don’t typically file taxes. This could include a spouse, parent, child, or any dependent.) This identifies your Self-Pay Level. Then, find your fees in the second chart below based on your Self-Pay Level.
