Our Intensive Outpatient and Partial Hospitalization Programs are in network with several insurance companies. If we are not in network with your insurance provider we are happy to work with your insurance company towards a single case agreement. These agreements often enable those who are “out of network” the ability to access care.
For outpatient therapy, our partnering clinic Be Well Kentucky is private pay and service costs are based on clinician hourly rates. We do offer a sliding scale program that provides reduced rates for those with demonstrated financial need.
Our Intensive Outpatient and Partial Hospitalization Programs can accept patients as young as 13 years old, though this can vary based on clinical appropriateness.
Your first time in therapy can be intimidating. We do our best to make sure you feel as comfortable as possible. In your first session we will ask you lots of questions about your eating, anxiety, mood, and history. We ask these questions so that we can develop a personalized treatment plan that is best for you.
Our Intensive Outpatient Program and Partial Hospitalization Program are both in network with several insurance providers including several Medicaid providers. Additionally we are able to work with many other insurance providers through single case agreements.
Currently all outpatient services are provided through our partnering clinic Be Well Kentucky, which is out of network with all insurance providers.
