Wellsprings Frequently Asked Questions
Do you take my insurance? | Print |
Because there are many insurance carriers and types of coverage (e.g. HMO, PPO, POS), the answer to this question depends specifically upon your insurance policy. Please contact us with the following information, and we will provide you with a prompt response to this question:
  • The name of the person seeking services
  • The type of services being sought (individual, couples, group, family)
  • The date of birth of the person seeking services
  • The name of the insurance company
  • The insured's name (if different than above)
  • The subscriber's id
  • The insurance company's phone number (for behavioral health services)

Use the insurance portion of our contact form to provide the information needed for us to check your insurance. We urge you to check on your insurance benefits personally before contacting us. We are generally out of network with most plans.  For purposes of checking specific benefit information, we would be considered "out-patient mental health" services. For your convenience, we submit to insurance on your behalf; however, the responsibility of payment and insurance reimbursement is yours.

What are the differences among individual, marital (couples), family, and group therapy? | Print |
  • Individual therapy is a form of treatment involving one client focusing on the mental, emotional and relational concerns presented by the client.
  • Couples therapy is a treatment offered to couples to address relational difficulties and facilitate the process of healing and problem solving.
  • Family therapy is a form of therapy to treat the family rather than the individual. The entire family is brought together to change the unhealthy family patterns and interactions.
  • Group therapy is a type of therapy usually involving at least four non-related individuals who are similar in some area, such as gender, age, mental health, or presenting difficulty.
