Lakeside accepts most major, private and government-issued insurance plans, as well as all major credit cards. Our financial counseling team will work with each patient’s insurance company to discuss available benefits. Out-of-Network plans may also be accepted on a case-by-case basis, however, it is the ultimate responsibility of the patient to cover all fees associated with treatment and length of stay, including applicable co-pays and deductibles. Lakeside has a wide range of payment options and financial arrangements can be made with our financial counseling department prior to or upon arrival.
Prior to admission, we advise prospective patients to contact their insurance company to review applicable benefits. Lakeside will assist patients with verifying and filing for insurance benefits, however payment of claims will depend on the coverage provided by the agency. Psychiatrists treating patients at Lakeside Behavioral Health System are independent contractors and not employed by the hospital. Physician fees will be billed separately by the physician. For more information about the cost of your or your loved one’s care, contact our financial counseling department at 1-800-232-5253 Monday through Friday between 8 am and 4:30 pm.
