We encourage you to bring a friend or family member to go through the assessment process with you. For an inpatient admission this will take three to four hours. At your appointment, you will be seen by a counselor and medical staff to determine your appropriateness for inpatient or outpatient treatment. If you have insurance (commercial or Medicaid), the final decision of which treatment you will receive will be made by the insurance company based on medical necessity.
If you have recently had inpatient treatment, your insurance may not authorize for inpatient but would authorize for outpatient treatment.
If you are not currently insured, you may qualify for expanded Medicaid. You can determine your eligibility and sign up on-line at kynect.ky.gov
