How long until I can see a Therapist or Psychiatrist?


After paperwork is completed, depending on insurance coverage, new patients can usually typically be seen the same day for a mental health assessment. For psychiatry it can be approximately 3-10 days to see a provider. For more information on our same day therapy appointments, please visit our Same Day Access page.




What type of insurance do you accept?


We accept all insurances except Title 19 (Medicaid) of South Dakota and Nebraska. We do accept Title 19 (Medicaid) of Iowa. It is however your responsibility to contact your insurance company to find out if we are in network or if the provider we schedule you with is in network. You will also need to verify what your copay will be, if there is coinsurance and how much that will be, and if there is a deductible that must be met. (We are an outpatient mental health center, therefore copays are usually considered to be under specialist copay).




What do I do if I do not have insurance?


You can apply for a discount of services through our Sliding Fee Scale. For more information, please visit our New Patients page.

Under a court order you have to comply with the recommendations made by your provider. If you do not comply you may have to present in front of the judge, be admitted to the behavioral health unit at the hospital, or even serve a sentence in the Woodbury County Jail.




How do I get somebody into services if they do not want to receive services and are a danger to themselves or others?


There are two options: 1. You can visit with the patient to tell them your concerns and ask that they voluntarily receive services 2.
