Medication Evaluations

IF YOU ARE REQUESTING MEDICATION EVALUATIONS THRU “THE PSYCHOLOGY CENTER, INC”,
HERE ARE SOME IMPORTANT THINGS FOR YOU TO KNOW:

  • You can request NEW medications or REFILLS of your current medications in our program.
  • You will be required (by your ins co) to pay any copays or deductibles used by your insurance plan regardless of the insurance plan you are using.
  • Otherwise, your insurance plan benefits will be applied toward all other costs but NOTE that there is no guarantee of coverage and these additional expenses would then remain your responsibility
  • However, for comparison, you may want to consider the cost in time, money, and frustration in waiting for an appointment if you go thru your insurance plan or current medical prescriber- IF you can even get an appointment!
  • Our unique approach to getting your prescription needs filled MORE CONVENIENTLY gives you

2 Choices:

  • Visit our office for a traditional in-person OFFICE appointment

OR

  • A TELEPSYCH APPOINTMENT that offers a TELEPHONE or VIDEO consultation right on your own Smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer to access our prescriber etc. This way you can discuss your medication at any time and whenever it is convenient for you to do so – even from home if you wish to. (For those who do not wish to use online video, your appointment may also be done by TELEPHONE).
