Why Seek Specialized Treatment

Pay Privately

We offer the option to pay privately, meaning that the family covers 100% of treatment costs. You can speak more in-depth about this with our admissions team at 855-676-4272.

Health Insurance

Navigating health insurance coverage for treatment can be a daunting task. At Oxbow Academy, we understand the complexities and challenges that parents may face when dealing with a child in crisis and having to rely on health insurance to cover the much-needed services. While most insurance companies provide coverage for Medically necessary treatment, we would like to note that Oxbow Academy is currently out-of-network with all insurance companies. Our experienced utilization team can assist by advocating directly to the insurance companies and outlining medically necessary services. Even when Oxbow Academy is out-of-network. By using Single Case Agreements (SCA) and In-network exceptions (INE), our team is equipped to handle insurance complexities, unwarranted denials and in-network deficiencies.

We are committed to helping families secure the best possible insurance coverage, even though insurance may not cover the entire cost of services or recommended length of stay. Oxbow Academy has a dedicated in-house team that will help you navigate and understand your insurance benefit options. To create a personalized funding plan tailored to your needs, please reach out to our admissions representative at 855-676-4272.


While having Medicaid approval is a great step forward, obtaining funding for treatment can be a complicated endeavor. Our utilization team has extensive experience in deciphering Medicaid policies and successfully negotiating Single Case Agreements (SCAs) to ensure that you receive the most comprehensive coverage possible. It is important to note that Medicaid may not cover the entire cost of services due to significant funding discrepancies among states. We recognize the potential frustration this may cause and therefore offer a broader range of funding options. To create a personalized funding plan tailored to your needs, please reach out to our admissions representative at 855-676-4272.
