How to Apply
On your first visit you will be asked to provide Southwestern with your proof of income. You can provide this information to us in different ways including:
- A current paycheck stub or coy of your W-2
- A WorkOne release (if you are currently unemployed)
- A copy of your SSI benefit statement
Southwestern offers a sliding fee discount based on household income to those who do not have health insurance or other third party coverage and to those who have insurance which does not cover behavioral healthcare or specific behavioral healthcare services. Proof of income must be provided to receive the discount which is based on 133% Federal Poverty Guidelines with a minimum fee of $20 per service.
Southwestern offers additional fee discounts through an Application for Additional Fee Reduction. You can ask your therapist, a support staff member or a Patient Financial Services representative for an application form.
Once you turn in the application, it will then be reviewed and a Patient Financial Services representative will contact you to discuss whether or not you are eligible for an additional fee reduction.
If you have any questions about this process, please contact our Patient Financial Services department at 812.436.4293.
It is our goal to make sure that every patient understands their treatment coverage and out of pocket expenses. We are here to help you feel more comfortable with this process.
In the instance that you should have questions or concerns regarding your statement balance, please contact our Patient Financial Services Department at 812.436.4293 or you can visit the Spear Building located at 415 Mulberry Street in downtown Evansville and ask to request a private meeting with one of our Patient Financial Services representatives.
In addition to the Patient Financial Services Department, we have an insurance navigator on staff. If you have insurance questions or need help applying for insurance, please contact our insurance navigator, Kris Beauchamp, who is available to assist you. She can be reached at 812.436.4244 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
