Sliding Scale Service Commitment

Boston Child Study Center (BCSC) is dedicated to eliminating inequality in the mental health system, including financial barriers to high-quality, evidence-based treatments. We offer sliding scale fee reductions as one part of this mission. Reduced rates are reserved for low-income families without access to other financial resources and/or support. Fees may be reduced to as low as $16 per session or $5 per session if a family receives 5 or more hours of services per week.

Upon receipt of our sliding scale request form and accompanying documents, BCSC’s underwriting team will review for a possible reduced rate. We request financial information and documents of the caregivers/parents of the patient looking for a reduced rate. This is regardless of the patient’s age and/or financial independence.

Please reach out to our intake team at or 617-800-9610 to inquire about the Sliding Scale.
