In order to make osteopathic care more accessible, I offer a sliding scale.
As you’re thinking about where you fall on this scale, please thoughtfully consider your resources. One common pitfall in relating to a sliding scale is that people with family wealth but temporary personal scarcity select a lower rate than people with temporary abundance but no safety net. To help you decide how much to pay, check out this quick assessment tool:
|adults||children (<10 years)|
|Tier 1||$300 - 500||$240 - 400|
|Tier 2||$150 - 300||$120 - 240|
|Tier 3||$100 - 150||$80 - 120|
|Tier 4||$50 - 100||$40 - 80|
|Tier 5||$10 - 50||$5 - 40|
Healthcare blue book assesses the “fair price” of a 40 minute office visit with osteopathic manipulation of 1-2 body regions at $365.
My appointments are 1 hour or more, and I treat the entire body (10 body regions according to insurance billing standards.)
Notes about pricing:
Tier 2 covers my services in full. People who can afford Tier 1 rates enable me to provide care to people in Tiers 3-5.
I offer two appointments per week in Tier 3, and one each of Tiers 4 and 5. I prioritize queer/trans BIPOC for these slots.
If you have out-of-network insurance benefits, please factor the reimbursement into your rate. If you are unsure of your benefits, check out this Insurance Questions Worksheet.
