After You Apply
After we receive s completed application, one of our client care coordinators checks the information, including the parents’/caregivers’ health insurance benefits. The client care coordinator will call the parents/caregivers to verify the benefits available and go over anticipated coverage and/or out-of-pocket costs.
Once parents/caregivers decide to proceed with an intake, they receive a call-back from Keystone’s scheduling staff and are assigned to the next appropriate provider (unless they request a specific provider). Their first visit is usually an hour long with a psychologist. In most cases, the psychologist meets with the parents/caregivers while a psych assistant visits with their child, to give parents an opportunity to discuss all of their concerns,. At the end of that meeting, the parents/caregivers meet with a client care coordinator to talk about the services they may need, pricing and available times for appointments.
