Policies & Fees

Summit Counseling is honored to serve both non-members and members of First Baptist Jackson.  

Fee Information

For non-members of First Baptist, Summit Counseling provides experienced and qualified Contract Therapists and reserves their session times for you.  

Beginning January 1, 2015 Summit Counseling will accept and file insurance for Blue Cross Blue Shield, Blue Cross Blue Shield Federal, and AHS State Network clients only.  The fee is fixed at $126.00 per 45 minute session.  It is possible through BCBS Mississippi network that you would only pay a co-pay per office visit.  Summit Counseling makes no assurance that your insurance will pay your claims and you are responsible for the $126.00 charge regardless of whether your insurance pays.

For all other insured clients we will gladly provide an Invoice and Form 1500 for you to file your own claim. These clients will pay according to the sliding scale based on total family income at each office visit.  

For clients without insurance, fees are based on your total family income from all sources according to a sliding scale ranging from $90 to $135 per 50-minute session on an income range of under $40,999 to over $101,000.  The front desk can tell you where your payment will fall in the scale.

Fees are due at the time of your session.  Summit Counseling accepts cash, check, credit or debit card.

Member of First Baptist Jackson

Active and attending members of First Baptist Jackson are not subject to fees for Summit Staff Therapists as tithes and offerings to First Baptist Jackson support this ministry.  The church pays our staff therapists and therefore member sessions with these therapists have no charge.

If members wish to see a Contract Therapist, we ask you to contribute $50 to the fee that the Summit Counseling ministry pays the therapist, in order to help defray the cost to this ministry.
