Provider rates are based on a number of factors. These include provider education, training, lived experience, expertise, and geographic location.
Abbie understands that not everyone can afford the full fee rate. Particularly, as some of the communities Abbie serves are often under- and unemployed. Abbie offers limited reduced fee spots for clients with financial need, based on a tiered system, where individuals paying the full fee rate support reduced fee availability (see image below).
Reduced fee tiers are offered based on availability and ongoing availability is not guaranteed.
Abbie also offers reduced-fee services through the Open Path Collective, when available.
