Life, free from addiction or struggles with mental health, is priceless. Cost should never prohibit someone from seeking treatment.
Prairie View offers several affordable options, with or without insurance. Prairie View contracts with most major commercial insurance providers as well as MCO’s. Prairie View staff will make every effort to verify and utilize insurance benefits. We encourage clients to confirm that Prairie View, Inc. is “in-network” for their coverage and if not, does the policy cover “out-of-network” benefits for Prairie View?
A Prairie View financial counselor will help identify your best options.
For clients with insurance, Prairie View will submit claims for services to the insurance company. In order to facilitate this, it is necessary for us to have a copy of the current insurance card.
The client is responsible for co-pays. Co-pays are due at the time of service.
Prairie View will inform clients of additional costs not covered by insurance in advance when possible. These co-insurance charges are due at the time of service.
All claims sent to insurance companies or Medicare will be billed at Prairie View’s full rate. Should a private insurance company pay less than 100%, the client is responsible for the balance due.
For clients without insurance or who choose not to use insurance benefits, Prairie View expects the client to pay for all charges at time of service.
Discounts may be available for those paying the full amount of inpatient treatment in advance. Clients should discuss this option with a Prairie View financial counselor.

Past Due Balances
Past due balances are referred to an outside collection agency unless an alternate payment arrangement is approved. The payment plan applies to past due balances only. New charges must be paid as they are incurred.
Residents of Harvey, McPherson, and Marion counties may qualify for reduced fees based on the current established sliding scale fee; available upon request. Qualification for sliding scale fee is based on the number of dependents and total income reported on the income tax return on which the client is included. Clients unable to pay the sliding scale fee can request a fee reduction or complete fee waiver. Current circumstances and ability to pay the established fee will be considered when making any fee adjustment or waiver.
No resident of Harvey, McPherson or Marion counties is denied Community Mental Health Services mandated medically necessary and appropriate because of inability or refusal to pay.
