At ViewPoint Center, we do everything in our power to help families afford assessments and treatment for their teen. Payment for our program is made out of pocket. Many families use savings and other monetary funds to afford our program. Other families are able to afford our program due to insurance coverage. We accept insurance and successfully bill out of network benefits. We support families throughout the insurance appeals process and employ a full-time, seasoned Utilization Reviewer.
Most families average 25-30 days of insurance coverage and our average length of stay is 6 to 7 weeks. This means that families who successfully receive insurance coverage are able to get the majority of their child’s time with us covered.
Each insurance company has a utilization review process for determining medical necessity. About 98% of them won’t approve admissions until our licensed Practitioner has assessed the patient. They want up to date clinical information and a face to face assessment. Before we make the phone call, we always have the child’s full history; this would include relevant information from the parents & our licensed Practitioner.
