All new clients at Better Living Center for Behavioral Health start their treatment path with an ‘intake’ session. This session helps us determine diagnoses, treatment plan, and recommended level of care.
Intake sessions scheduled for up to two hours, the second hour is reserved for orienting clients who may need higher level care (Intensive Outpatient or Day Treatment) to those programs. If your anxiety symptoms are not particularly severe, or your treatment path is clear, your intake appointment may be as short as 50 minutes.
Before your appointment, you should arrive at least 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork or fill out paperwork online and submit it prior to your appointment. Should you not complete paperwork prior to your appointment your appointment time will not be extended, and may be shorter than 50 minutes.
Intake appointments typically cost $150 (whether they are 1 or 2 hours in length).
Please note that we are moving to self-pay only. We will not be in-network for any insurances. Any networks we were previously in-network with will cover existing clients who elected to use their insurance coverage during the time we were paneled.
We are making this choice 1) so that we can focus on the best care of our clients and their clinical needs exclusively, 2) to minimize confusion caused by both clients and clinicians receiving varying and inconsistent remittance, reimbursement, and in-network versus out of network information.
