How much do partial hospitalization programs cost?

Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) can be a lifesaver for people who need intensive mental health or addiction treatment but don’t need to be hospitalized. PHPs offer a variety of services, including individual and group therapy, medication management, and skills training. They also provide participants with the support they need to transition back to their everyday lives.

But how much does a Partial Hospitalization Program cost?

The cost of a PHP can vary depending on a number of factors, including:

 

    • The location of the program

    • The type of services offered

    • The length of the program

    • Your insurance coverage

In general, PHPs can cost anywhere from $300 to $1,300 per day. Some programs may offer sliding scale fees or other financial assistance options.

If you are considering a PHP, it is important to talk to your insurance company to see if they cover the cost of treatment. You should also ask the program about their payment options and whether they offer any financial assistance.

Here are some tips for finding a PHP that is affordable:

 

    • Ask your insurance company for a list of PHPs that are in your network.

    • Contact your local mental health department or addiction treatment center to see if they offer a PHP.

    • Look for PHPs that offer sliding scale fees or other financial assistance options.

Here are some tips for paying for a PHP:

 

    • If you have insurance, check with your insurance company to see if they cover the cost of treatment.

    • If you don’t have insurance, or if your insurance doesn’t cover the full cost of treatment, you may be able to qualify for financial assistance from the government or from private organizations.

    • You may also be able to negotiate a payment plan with the PHP.

If you are struggling to afford a PHP, please don’t give up. There are options available, and you don’t have to go through this alone. Talk to your doctor or mental health professional to learn more about your options.
