Your first session is a 30 minute paperwork appointment with our front desk, called the “Screening”. During this appointment you will be completing paperwork that will allow us to pinpoint the issues more expediently.
Please bring the following with you to your Screening:
The second appointment usually takes between 1-2 hours. This appointment is usually done by one of our LMSWs or Dr.Belsare. This is a full psychiatric evaluation during which the causes of your suffering will be teased out – what is biological and what is psychological – and further, what can be done about these causes. This appointment is called the “Intake”. Your first receipt will be given after this appointment and will reflect both charges of the screening and intake.
The maximum time between appointments for a stable client is 3 months. Telehealth options available.
Medication renewal only - please send all requests to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 4 business days in advance. You must have had an appointment in the last 3 months and have another one scheduled.
We can provide you with a receipt to bill your insurance by filing an out-of-network claim form. You could then download a claim form from your insurance website, fill out with the numbers on the receipt, and send into your insurance. Each insurance program is different. Most do refund a portion of your cost or apply it to your deductible. If we are in network for your insurance you will only be responsible for your co-pay/ coinsurance/deductible, depending on your particular plan.
We have a limited number of spaces for medicare. Please consider CTRC, which accepts all insurances, at 607-797-0680.
