QUALIFYING FOR HELP
Some resources are completely free for anyone. These are often group sessions available to those who live near enough to get to meeting locations regularly.
Most scholarships and grants require some financial hardship on the part of the family. They may also have requirements regarding the type of eating disorder, the history and the attitude towards recovery.
Some treatment centers have sliding scale payment systems, determined by family income and insurance conditions. This site will list as many as we can find, with examples of the payment systems when possible.
When studies are done on new treatment methods, participants can sometimes get treatment at reduced costs, or for free. They will be listed here as well.
Some lenders specialize in medical loans. These can be useful in cases where a family can make regular payments over time, but cannot come up with the necessary funds all at once.
Help is Available
- Insurance co-pay is too high
