TLC's Equitable Care Philosophy:
Basically, pay what you can, how you can and when you can.
I have found this a better use of resources and time than spending hours arguing with insurance companies who want to pay only a portion of the billed amount.
I believe this is a fair, attainable and equitable way to provide lactation support to the communities that TLC serves.
Here's How It Works:
I accept cash, credit card, Venmo, payments plans, sliding scale, barter or trade for my services.
Prices are listed below based on current market value: I accept payment plans based on your assessment of your own funds.
For Barter or Trade: The client assigns a value to something they want to trade and the trade is mutually agreed upon
No one will be turned away based on inability to pay, but I do not offer free services. Everyone has something to contribute, even if the monetary value is minimal. I believe this is mutually respectful for the provider and client.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns.
Examples of items to trade: Fish/Game, Homemade Bread, Local Preserved foods like spruce tip syrup, House Plants, Artwork, Time/Services, Lessons in something you are skilled at, a boat ride, ghost writing etc.
