HOW DO I GET STARTED

The enrollment process

To begin the enrollment process, a new patient intake is scheduled with an intake counselor. The intake department can be reached at: 520 539-2558. This process generally takes about an hour and half where we gather background information, current symptoms and issues, and gather financial information. We accept most major insurance plans, including Cigna, Aetna, United Health Care, Blue Cross & Blue Shield, Tricare and some Medicaid plans. Our intake department will work with each insurance company to obtain authorization for treatment and also provide you with an estimateof out-of-pocket cost. New patients that may need to self-pay for services, our finance department will help you develop a payment plan that will enable you to receive the care you need. We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, FSA and HAS cards, and e-checks.

You can expect to begin working with us quickly as our team finalizes the intake process. During the intake process, we will help you determine what level of care you need and review the various treatment options. Once the intake process is completed, and insurance authorization is obtained, a staff member will contact you to notify you of a start date for group and schedule the first individual appointment.
