Payment Policy

Insurance 

Advantage serves all people who are eligible for treatment. Those not covered by Medicaid will be asked to pay a co-payment at the time of service based on their insurance plan. If you are uninsured, you may qualify for the State Assistance Program. Those clients will be asked to pay an amount determined on a sliding fee scale based on income.

If you are experiencing a crisis, you will not be turned away due to inability to pay.
For those with insurance coverage, we accept the following plans:

  • Medicaid
  • Medicare Part B
  • Peachcare for Kids
  • Amerigroup
  • Wellcare
  • Cenpatico
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • United Health Care

We have on-site financial counselors to help provide support services to clients and/or their families and agency program staff. Financial counselors assist in identifying all available financial resources for which clients may be eligible to fund the cost of required services and improve total quality of life.

For questions related to billing, please email the Billing Department or call (706) 389-6789, extension 1530.

Payment of Fees and Sliding Fee Schedule

Advantage serves all clients who are eligible for treatment and does not deny service due to inability to pay. Clients who
do not have insurance will be asked to pay fees based on the DBHDD sliding fee schedule below. Clients with private
insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare will be asked to pay co-pays and deductibles at the time of service.
Advantage utilizes the DBHDD fee schedule to assess self-pay fees for its services.1 The cost of service can be variable
based on the length of time of the appointment and the type of provider who you are seeing. You will be provided with
an estimate of your fee and/or any associated co-pays prior to your appointment. If you are unable to pay the assessed
fee, please speak with our front desk staff about establishing a payment arrangement.
