PPI’s services are covered by most major insurance companies. Some financial assistance is available in cases of financial hardship or lack of insurance.
As of April 2013, the Pittsburgh Pastoral Institute charges a minimum $50 fee for uninsured, sliding scale clients according to the person I spoke with on the phone. To quote the email: “This is for any household income up to $50,000 annually. From there it goes up $1 per $1000, i.e., if income is $55,000, fee is $55 per session; if annual income is $60,000, fee is $60 per session, and so on.” Hope this helps!
