Finances & Assistance

Do not let finances stand in the way of finding health, hope, and healing


Keystone works with each of our patients to ensure finances do not hinder from getting the treatment needed.

We never require full payment up front and will gladly set up a no-interest payment plan that makes sense for your financial situation. Keystone, as a public-private partnership, receives federal and state support, grants, and donations so we can offer affordable treatment for everyone who is affected by a substance use disorder, regardless of ability to pay.

Keystone also accepts Medicaid and most health insurance providers.

Keystone’s grants and donations cover less than half of operating expenses, therefore we are required to bill patients for services not covered by insurance.

For under or uninsured patients

Keystone has been awarded numerous grants to help low-income under- and uninsured patients afford care. We never require patients to pay for treatment services in advance, and we offer affordable payment plans. On the day of your assessment, you will meet with our finance office to learn about our policies and how to manage the cost of your care and apply for available assistance.

We make payments affordable.

  • We accept cash, checks, and most major credit cards, flex spending accounts and health savings accounts.
  • If you are able and wish to pay upfront, we offer a 20 percent discount (this does not apply to ADSAP).
  • If you set up a recurring debit/ credit card payment, you are eligible for an additional 20% “extra credit”.
  • We never require payment in full in advance. Weekly payments are requested while in outpatient services, typically $25 per week.



Keystone offers additional financial assistance in the form of discounts and grants to assist patients in paying for treatment.

Significant Financial Hardship

  • Out of pocket medical expenses for serious illness or injury
  • Death of family member
  • Pending loss of home to foreclosure
