Frequently Asked Questions
Common questions our patients ask before their initial assessment.
What happens in a therapy session?
Therapy is a supportive and confidential process where you will feel heard and understood. At the beginning of a therapy session, you will most likely be invited to share what’s on your mind and you and your therapist will discuss what’s been going on in your life, challenges you have been facing, and your feelings about it.
Your therapist will use their expertise to help you gain a new perspective, learn more about yourself and your situation, recognize patterns of behavior that have become problematic, and develop new skills you can use in your day-to-day life to achieve your goals.
Therapy is a collaborative process between you and your therapist; you will make greater progress when you actively participate in the therapeutic process.
When and why does MHCA recommend medications?
MHCA has psychiatrists (MDs) and Physician Assistants (PAs) who have extensive training in mental health medication prescription management.
They will guide you through the process of learning what works for you. Medication can be one of many treatment options available at MHCA.
We might recommend medication if it is most likely to help support your treatment goals and likely to improve results of other treatment recommendations.
How much does therapy cost?
Depending on the type of your treatment plan and the specialty of the therapist/s you are seeing, (counseling vs. Medication management vs. Psychological Assessments) cost will vary.
Once your initial assessment is complete you will receive a comprehensive treatment plan, schedule, and cost before proceeding.
If you have insurance, our various mental health services will be subject to your policy coverage and contracted rates (see pricing and insurance details here).
If you are a cash-paying patient then pricing is as advertised.
What payment methods are accepted?
We accept major credit/debit cards. All treatment plans and corresponding costs will be discussed upfront during your assessment review visit.
Payment for scheduled services will be due at the time of service rendered.
How do health laws affect price?
There are many health laws that you can look into if you want to ensure that your insurance company complies. Here are some examples.
Mental Health Parity, or Health Parity. This happens when insurance networks are required to provide equal coverage to mental healthcare and substance abuse disorders. Many insurance providers offer parity, but sometimes, the quality may differ.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Shortened to the Affordable Care Act is a law that requires health insurance companies to cover mental health and substance abuse disorders.
