For most families, the cost of a residential alternative school or program is an important factor in your decision. While reviewing the cost of attending Eckerd E-Nini-Hassee, please keep in mind that many of our students qualify for some type of financial assistance through prepayment discounts, insurance funding, and low interest educational loans .
Since Eckerd is one of the nation’s leading not-for-profit providers of services for children and families, our tuition rate of $225 per day is often lower than comparable for-profit schools and programs. In these difficult economic times, we are continually striving to keep our program as affordable as possible. That’s also why we do not charge an application fee, processing fee, gear fees, or other ancillary fees that many other programs charge.
Additional Discounts Available*
An additional 5% tuition discount is given to families who prepay a minimum of six months of their child’s stay either through personal funds or through educational loans. At the end of six months, this discounted rate will still be available to families committing to additional treatment for their child as long as the remaining time in the program is prepaid. Otherwise, the rate will revert to the standard rate.
Second Child Discount:
10% discount for any 2nd child who has a sibling in the program.
5% discount for any child who has a parent actively serving in the military.
*Note: While the second child or military discount may be combined with the pre-paid discount, families cannot combine all three discounts.
Low Interest Loans:
Many families choose to finance their child’s tuition at Eckerd E-Nini-Hassee through our financing partner, Clark Behavioral Health, because low monthly payments can be spread over a period of time of their choosing. Actual amounts that can be borrowed range from $500 - $50,000 (APR starts at approximately 7.99%) with flexible payment terms typically ranging from 12 – 60 months and no pre-payment penalties. The loan application is quick and easy, and you can apply by calling Clark Behavioral Health Financing (888-755-3079) or by applying online on Clark’s website. Most pre-approvals can be obtained within 24 hours. Since these guidelines may change from time to time, you can obtain the most up-to-date information on Clark’s custom loan programs by contacting them directly.
Eckerd E-Nini-Hassee is an approved in-network provider with Value Options, the behavioral health care company of choice for many businesses, government entities and academic institutions across the country, as well as Magellan Pinnacle and Summit commercial insurance networks, and the Florida Medicaid HMO Network – Healthy Kids. As a result, we are experienced in assisting families seeking insurance certification for their daughter's residential stay at E-Nini-Hassee.
Educational loans are not for every family and some choose to pay for the treatment themselves. Once our clinical team determines the appropriateness of our program for your child, you may be asked to complete a financial application. Please note that your financial application is a confidential document that is held in our Business Office. It is evaluated only after a decision is made whether your child is appropriate for admission.
Upon acceptance into Eckerd E-Nini-Hassee, we will need a deposit of one month’s tuition prior to admittance. The deposit will be applied to the last month of treatment. Invoices are mailed monthly at the beginning of each month. For your convenience, we also accept VISA, MasterCard and American Express.
