Medication Management

We help you better handle obstacles you may face to be the best version of yourself you can be through psychiatric medication management.

Insurance Information

For each appointment, you will need to provide the required information to verify your insurance coverage and file your insurance claim. Your insurance is a contract between you and your insurance provider. It is important for you to understand your insurance plan coverage. We encourage you to contact the number on the back of your card to review and verify your benefits. Not all services are a covered benefit in all contracts. You are ultimately responsible for the charges, even if your insurance denies coverage.

You can check your coverage carefully by asking these questions:

  • Do I have psychological or neuropsychological insurance benefits?
  • What is my deductible, and has it been met?
  • Is a referral required from my primary care physician?
