UTHealth Houston Harris County Psychiatric Center

Inpatient & Outpatient Standard Charges


The UTHealth Houston Behavioral Sciences Campus (BSC), comprised of the John S. Dunn Behavioral Sciences Center (DCB) and the Harris County Psychiatric Center (HCPC) provides inpatient and outpatient psychiatric services.

Charges are the same for all patients, regardless of ability to pay or insurance coverage. A standard charge is the standard dollar amount UTHealth Houston BSC charges for services rendered before negotiating any discounts. It is important to note that standard charges do not reflect expected or actual reimbursement from patients or insurance companies to UTHealth Houston BSC.

Our reimbursement depends on a variety of factors, including:

  • Patient's ability to pay;
  • Fixed government rates (Medicare and Medicaid);
  • Negotiated rates with insurance carriers;
  • Individually negotiated case agreements; and
  • Payment discounts.

Financial counselors are available to help determine if a patient is eligible for financial assistance and to provide good faith estimates of patient financial responsibility. Financial assistance is granted on a sliding scale, based on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services federal poverty guidelines. Our financial counselors can be reached during business hours at 713-741-3860.
