We will still conduct courtesy appointment reminders 2 days in advance. These fees will not be covered by insurance and will need to be paid prior to your next scheduled appointment. As always, our answering service is open 24/7 for patients to leave messages regarding appointments.

Missed Medication Management - $25

 New Patient Information

Riverview Community Mental Health Center graciously thanks you for choosing us, and we look forward to meeting with you. Below are some things to keep in mind while preparing for your new patient appointment:

  2. Download and complete registration forms, including PHQ-9 and Release of Information (if applicable)

New Patient Estimate Explanation

The estimate below is the range of costs for new patients.  Until we complete an initial evaluation, and begin care, we will not have a clear picture of your specific diagnosis, issues, and needs. We typically see therapy patients for 25 sessions for a total cost of $3850.00.  But in some/many cases a patient’s issues may be more complicated, so we may need additional sessions during the time covered by this estimate. We typically see medication management patients for a total cost of $1900. But in some/many cases a patient’s issues may be more complicated, so we may need additional sessions during the time covered by this estimate.

Continuing Patient Explanation

The estimate below is the range of costs/cost that we think is likely for your care over the time covered by this estimate.  However, depending on how treatment progresses, more or fewer sessions or appointments may be needed.  Contact: If you have questions about this estimate, please contact our billing department at 305-279-2276.

This Good Faith Estimate shows the costs of services that are reasonably expected for the expected services to address your mental health care needs. The estimate is based on the information known to [us/me] when [we/I] did the estimate. The Good Faith Estimate does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment. You could be charged more if complications or special circumstances occur. If this happens, federal law allows you to dispute (appeal) the bill.

You may contact the billing department at the contact listed above to let them know the billed charges are at least $400 higher than the Good Faith Estimate. You can ask them to update the bill to match the Good Faith Estimate, ask to negotiate the bill, or ask if there is financial assistance available. You may also start a dispute resolution process with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). If you choose to use the dispute resolution process, you must start the dispute process within 120 calendar days (about 4 months) of the date on the original bill.

There is a $25 fee to use the dispute process. If the agency reviewing your dispute agrees with you, you will have to pay the price on this Good Faith Estimate. If the agency disagrees with you and agrees with the health care provider or facility, you will have to pay the higher amount.
