Our providers/clinicians are currently in network with many insurance providers. See full list of accepted insurance providers.

You must call and cancel your appointment 48 hours (2 business days) before the appointment time (weekend days and holiday days do not count towards the minimum 2 business day requirement). If you do not cancel or do not show up, you will be charged $100 for individual appointments and $50 for group appointments.

This will vary based on your payment method and insurance coverage. If you are using your insurance benefits, you can call the customer service number on the back of your card to confirm your specific benefits. You can ask, “What are my behavioral health benefits?” to find out how much you would pay for a therapy or medication management appointment. At Ayebs behavioral services, we also will verify your insurance by filling out the inquiry here.

A co-payment, or co-pay, is a flat fee for a healthcare service or a prescription drug that is predetermined by a member’s health insurance plan. Co-pays are one way that insurers share the cost of medical services with policyholders, with the fees paid depending on the plan, medical service, or drug. These fees are a fraction of the actual cost of the service provided. Co-insurance is a similar cost-share your insurance plan might utilize; however instead of being a flat fee, you are responsible for a pre-set percentage of the total cost of the service.

We provide the best suited clinician based on specialty, availability, location, treatment approach, and insurance coverage. Our team of licensed mental healthcare professionals spans a wide range of clinical specialties and areas of interest. If you do have concerns about fit after your first appointment, please discuss with your provider/ clinician, who will discuss potential next best steps with you.

Our goal is to get you scheduled as quickly as possible. Once we gather your preferences and information, we will immediately reach out to you (typically within 24-48 hours). If you submit a request during a weekend, we will connect with you on the next business day. After the initial intake call, we aim to have your first appointment scheduled within 2-5 business days.

During your first appointment with a licensed mental health provider/clinician, you will discuss your history, current symptoms, and goals in care. This initial appointment allows the two of you to get to know each other, and collaboratively develop a plan of treatment to help you best achieve your goals. It’s important to realize that for some patients, the next step may include a 2nd continuation intake appointment, for the provider/clinician to gather additional information before creating a treatment plan. Additionally, for some patients with needs beyond the scope of our capabilities at Ayebs behavioral services, the provider/clinician may recommend a referral to a more specialized treatment provider.

This is a decision that will be made in partnership with your treating provide/ clinician and is up to their clinical judgement. However, we cannot guarantee that your first appointment will end with a medication prescription.

Similar to the question above, this is a decision that will be made in partnership with your treating provider/clinician and is up to their clinical judgement. It is important to note that if your provider/clinician decides that a controlled substance (such as a stimulant to treat ADHD or a benzodiazepine to treat anxiety) is appropriate and clinically indicated, you must have had an in-person appointment to proceed. Patients who have only been seen virtually are not eligible for treatment with controlled substances.

We always make sure that any appointment that takes place between a patient and one of ourprovides/ clinicians is compliant with HIPAA regulations and ensures patient privacy. The software we use to facilitate this teleconferencing encrypts any video and audio. Of course, it is also important for you to be mindful of the setting in which you take a virtual appointment; choosing a comfortable, quiet, and private space is important.

Our HIPAA-compliant, encrypted software keeps your personal data secure. We follow the highest national standards for security and privacy for all patients and providers/clinicians. Your personal data, medical information, and private communications are all hosted on HIPAA-compliant, SSL-encrypted servers.

Providers are trained PMHNP to treat general medical conditions and the broad spectrum of psychiatric illnesses. Providers may use a combination of medication management and psychotherapy to treat patients. Therapists are clinicians with either master’s or Ph.D. level training who are specialty trained (through a combination of classroom and clinically-based work) to deliver psychotherapy as a treatment for psychiatric symptoms/conditions.

Medications are one tool mental health providers/clinicians can use, in addition to psychotherapy, to help treat their patients’ symptoms. The decision to use medication, psychotherapy, or both in combination is a collaborative one made by the providers/clinicians with close input from the patient. Often, the most successful treatments combine the two. In some cases, medication is the core treatment and therapy the secondary intervention. At Ayebs behavioral services, we have a team-based approach to care, so you can get both in one place.
