Behavioral Medicine: FAQs
How do I know if the clinic takes my insurance?
Prospective patients may call and ask Hurley Mental Health Associates support staff whether the clinic contracts with their insurance plan. Our support staff will also verify the insurance benefit and co-pay, and this information will be provided at their first visit.
What if I don’t have insurance? Can I still come to the clinic?
Prospective patients may pay the private pay rate, or if that is not feasible, Genesee County Community Mental Health provides services on a sliding scale basis.
I think I need therapy but what if I don’t know who to see?
The professional staff of Hurley Mental Health Associates represents a wide range of age and ethnic background so that patients’ needs and personal preferences can best be met. Based on the chief complaint that causes a person to call for an appointment and any preferences they may have, our support staff can match a prospective patient with a therapist who is right for him/her.
How long will I need to be in therapy?
The length of stay in therapy varies, depending on the severity of symptoms and the motivation of the patient to make changes, but the average length of stay is about 12 sessions.
Do you have staff members who can prescribe medication if I need it?
Hurley Mental Health Associates’ medical staff of psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, and physician assistants can prescribe medications for patients who are in therapy at the clinic.
Is it possible to not miss work or school for appointments?
The clinic is open Mondays-Thursdays 8am-9pm, Fridays 8am-5pm, and Saturdays 8am-4pm. There are many therapists who offer a variety of appointment times so that a patient’s wishes may be accommodated.
