KU Child & Family Services Clinic

Fees for Child and Adolescent Services

The Clinic charges fees for its services.

The therapist who is working with you will talk to you about how much you will be charged for Clinic services. You will sign a fee contract specifying what that fee will be. The fee is usually based on a per-session charge based on your household income and number of dependents.

Clinical interviews, therapy, and consultation services provided through the KU Child & Family Services Clinic are charged at a rate of $10.00 to $32.00 per 50-minute session. These rates also apply to school-based consultation services. Assessment and testing services for children and adolescents are provided at a rate of $200 to $400 for comprehensive psycho-educational evaluations (based on household income). The time spent in therapy sessions beyond 50 minutes will be charged in 15 minute segments at 25% of the rate per session.

A portion of the fees may be subsidized by the clinic based on your ability to pay. Individual fees may be adjusted according to the caregiver's income and number of dependents. Families who wish to qualify for an adjusted fee must provide proof of their annual income.

How you will be billed.

Payment for treatment services is required at the conclusion of each session. The Clinic does not file insurance claims. You may be able to file claims for services to your insurance company. Assessment services require payment during the first in-person meeting.

Please notify the Clinic Office if appointments need to be canceled or re-scheduled. Missed appointments will be billed to you if the Clinic Office is not notified at least 24 hours in advance.

What are clinic fees used for?

The Clinic is self-supporting and could not operate without charging fees. The office equipment, office supplies, testing materials, training materials, and some salaries are paid for through Clinic fees.
