The Therapy Calculator

Hey there! This is a project that attempts to de-mystify how much it costs to see a therapist for a year. Major topics covered include:

  • Whether you may qualify for a sliding scale fee based on your income
  • Whether any health insurance you may have is helpful
  • Whether you can take advantage of any tax deductions

The calculator walks you through each topic, and based on your selections it tries to determine:

  • How much you'll pay over the course of a year
  • How much each session costs averaged over that year

Tools used

Not much! All of the calculations are done in javascript, with jQuery. Other tools used:

  • Form elements, submissions and validations use Zurb's Foundation 6 library
  • There's a progress bar based on NProgress and onScreen
  • CSS uses Sass

How to contribute

Check my math and make sure I'm not doing anything goofy! Also, here's a list of issues I'd still like to work on:

  • Add the ability to change how often you see your therapist
  • What happens if someone's insurance covers costs completely? Does this ever happen?
  • What happens if someone has an MSA?
  • What happens if someone has Medicare or Medicaid?
  • What happens if someone has a yearly out-of-pocket limit?
  • Different tax calculations based on whether you're the head of household or filing jointly DONE
  • Add an option to fill it out with sample numbers

Other ideas welcome!
