You can find answers to our most frequently asked questions about this service here. If you’ve got a question we haven’t covered, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
If you are referred to one of our psychiatric providers your initial appointment will be scheduled for 90 minutes. This will include a thorough evaluation of your psychiatric and medical history as well as a review of events that led you to seek help. If it is decided that you will benefit from continuing to follow up with our psychiatric providers, follow up appointments will generally be scheduled for about 30 minutes. Arriving at least 15 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment will allow our front desk to update records and nursing staff to check you in.
While it is sometimes helpful to have a caseworker, family member, spouse or significant other attend an appointment with you, only those who you authorize may attend your appointment with you.
If you are already taking and benefiting from psychiatric medications, our providers may continue these, adjust these, or change to different medications. In some cases, our providers may determine that your concerns may be better treated with therapy or can be managed by your primary medical provider. In these cases our providers may refer you to a therapist, counselor, or primary medical provider.
In most cases, individuals seen at Region Ten already have insurance plans that cover most of the cost of their prescription medications. If you do not have insurance, we can assist you in seeing if you are eligible for an insurance plan, and assist you in enrolling in a plan that will help pay for your medications. We are also able to help identify affordable resources to assist you in affording your medications.
