Most forms of health insurance and Badger Care are accepted. A sliding fee schedule is also available and is based on federal guidelines. To meet these guidelines, an application must be completed. Copies of W2s, most recent pay stubs, and statements from all other sources of income for all individuals residing in your household must also accompany the application. Your fee for services is then determined by the established fee on the schedule for your household income bracket. A payment plan can also be arranged for those with high insurance deductibles or for those who must pay privately and choose not to apply for a sliding fee. Angel Shaver, the Achieve Center Billing and Insurance Specialist, will be happy to assist you with all of your billing and payment questions and arrangements.
