Behavioral Health Care Insurance Providers

Behavioral Health Care Insurance

  
  • Private Insurance and Medical Assistance--Families who have children/adolescents covered under private or primary insurance should contact their insurance company for psychiatric evaluations and treatment.   Should the private insurance become exhausted, or not cover psychiatry services, Medical Assistance can then be used as the secondary insurance for behavioral health services.
