Sliding scales

It is Source Medicine’s intention to offer care and treatment that is more “accessible”, therefore sliding scales for DC office visits, nutritional phone consultations, and remote treatments are available.

This scale is intended to provide health care equity and accessibility to people, who because of systems of power & oppression (class, race, employment, citizenship, gender identity, and religion, etc), are unable to receive the care and treatment that they need.

Sliding scale for DC office visits
1.25 hour/adults – ($110 – $190)
1 hour/ pediatric – ($120 – $160)

In the US and international
1-hour phone nutritional consult ($80 – $130)
1-hour remote treatments ($80 – $130)

 Consider paying less on the scale if you:

  • earn < $20/hour*, less than $40,000 net annual household income
  • are being targeted by any of the new administrations executive orders and are unable to pay the regular fees
  • have immigration-related expenses
  • are an unpaid community organizer or caregiver
  • are supporting children or have other dependents
  • have significant debt
  • have medical expenses not covered by insurance
  • receive public assistance
  • are an elder with limited financial support
  • are a single parent with limited resources
  • are a returning citizen who has been denied work due to incarceration history
  • live on a fixed income

 

Consider paying more on the scale if you:

  • earn > $20/hour*, more than $40,000 net annual household income
  • own the home you live in
  • have investments, retirement accounts, or inherited money
  • travel recreationally
  • full time student and receive financial assistance
  • have access to family money and resources in times of need
  • work part time or not at all by choice
  • have a relatively high degree of earning power due to level of education (or gender and racial privilege, class background, etc.) Even if you are not currently exercising your earning power, I ask you to recognize this as a choice.

5-person at-a-time

The sliding scale is offered to 5 people, for a 3-month period of treatment. If the sliding scale slots are full, you will be placed on a waiting list.

*Preference is primarily given to those individuals who earn <$20/ per hour.

Not sure?

Also, I’m aware that $110 per 1.25 hour session is still too high for some people; if this is the case for you, please contact me to start a conversation.

This scale is inspired by ongoing conversations with friends and colleagues that share the intention of creating more services that reflect social equity. All inspired by the work of ridefreefearlessmoney.com
