Fees for Services
The CSB charges fees to help offset the cost of providing services. Public tax dollars help fund the services delivered by the CSB, but they don't cover the entire cost. Fees are set annually.
Discounted fees for uninsured individuals are offered using a sliding scale, based on income and number of dependents. In addition, our Financial Assessment and Screening Team (FAST) can help determine whether you or your children are eligible for assistance through Medicaid or other health care financing programs.
We accept credit cards, checks, money orders and cash payments.
Note: This information does not apply to Infant & Toddler Connection (ITC) services. To find out about those costs, visit our ITC cost of services page.
