Providers in Burnett County and the Surrounding Area
Persons who are without insurance or other third party coverage may apply to be a Burnett County subsidized MH or AODA client with our Behavioral Health financial assistant. County clients can only be seen at approved contract facilities.
Clients share in the cost of the services they receive: Outpatient services are subject to a sliding fee scale, called the Uniform Fee System, which establishes a limited monthly payment based on income.
Inpatient, detox and pharmacy services are subject to a Special Billing Arrangement which allows clients to re-pay the costs of these services with affordable monthly payments.
