Location & Payment
Bucks Eating Support Collaborative is located in the heart Bucks County PA in two convenient locations (Newtown and Buckingham) and also offers Telehealth Services. We offer outpatient eating disorder services. Due to the skill of our providers, we can often work with clients who are in need of more intensive services and a team approach, making it a perfect place for a step down from a partial hospitalization, or an inpatient or residential program. Clients can work with us for as long as is necessary and tailor their needs as their recovery becomes stable. We are a private pay facility, which means we can provide receipts for services for your submission to your insurance carrier for “Out-Of-Network” reimbursement. Providers’ fees range from $120-$160 per 50-minute sessions and some providers are able to provide a sliding scale.

Services can be contracted on a week to week basis as an inclusive program with all services at a discount; or it can be attended in an à la carte fashion, with the approval of our intake director depending on the level of care needed for effective treatment.
