PCC of MA Sliding Fee Scale and Assistance Fund

Clients who do not have insurance or have insurance whose benefits have been exhausted for the year may qualify for the Sliding Fee Scale or the Pastoral Counseling Centers of Massachusetts Assistance Fund. The Sliding Fee Scale allows a person to pay for therapy at a reduced rate based upon their family’s income and expenses. This fee extends from the $100 per session fee down to a fee of $60 depending on one’s ability to pay.

In addition, the Centers maintain the Assistance Fund that allows a person who cannot afford the $60 minimum Sliding Scale Fee amount to receive still a further substantial fee reduction based on need. Please note that these reduced fees fall well below the cost of the session to the Centers. In order to provide this pastoral counseling to those most in need, the Pastoral Counseling Centers of Massachusetts depend on donations to this vital ministry from faith communities, civic groups and individuals .
