What happens on the initial consultation?
The initial consultation is typically a 60-90 minute consultation, to determine if the services offered at Hope and Wellness Psychiatry are the right fit for you. It is important that you and your doctor are on the same page when it comes to your health and well-being. This consultation time will give us an opportunity to identify your needs and goals. It does not establish a patient-doctor relationship unless we mutually agree on a treatment plan. If Hope and Wellness Psychiatry is not the best fit for you, then you can rest assured you will be provided with alternative resources in Tucson and Southern Arizona.
What age group does Hope and Wellness Psychiatry see?
4 years old and up. Minors will require consent from their guardian/parent(s) for treatment and consultation will include speaking with the child only, guardian/parent(s) only, and both child and guardian/parent(s).
Does Hope and Wellness Psychiatry take insurance?
No, Hope and Wellness Psychiatry is considered Out-of-Network. The advantage of private pay is that your treatment plans will be determined by you and your doctor rather than your insurance provider. No authorizations are necessary to start therapy or medications and no private medical records are shared with insurance companies.
Can I be reimbursed by my insurance?
Yes, a superbill can be generated at your request. You can submit the superbill to your insurance company for reimbursement. Unfortunately, Medicare does not reimburse for superbills at this time.
