We realize that making the decision to seek psychological help whether its for you or a loved one can be extremely difficult. Our goal is to make the admission process comfortable and thorough. Below are the steps we like to follow.
A phone call or e-mail will either be answered or returned by Dr. Kakaiya.
Patients Discharging from Inpatient Settings
If you are stepping down from an inpatient program, we are the ideal aftercare program. We will closely work with your inpatient team to make sure that there is continuity of care for you. We can conduct a phone intake with you prior to leaving the residential facility and confirm a space for you to start as soon as you come to San Diego. We offer a weekly step down aftercare group and this coupled with individual therapy sessions with Dr. Kakaiya, your dietician, and your doctors would constitute a very comprehensive step down program.
Verification of Insurance Benefits
We will provide you with a superbill which you may submit to your insurance company. The cost of treatment is payable up front. You will need to check with your insurance company to determine what the coverage is. Neither Healthy Within nor Dr. Kakaiya are members on insurance panels. We are considered out of network providers. Additionally, many insurance companies have guidelines about whether care provided by an ACSW intern or a MFT intern will be covered.
We are not network providers for any insurance companies and therefore we are strictly a private pay clinic. Our goal is to provide the person with optimum, individualized clinical care without any interruptions in treatment. Various insurance companies have limitations to the amount of coverage they offer. Recovery from any psychological condition takes a long time and patience. One of the reasons why we choose not to participate in panels is because we want to guide the level and intensity of care that an individual needs.
