  • Do I need an appointment?  No, you do not need a appointment, just call or come to the office during office hours to register.  After registration has been completed you will be given an appointment for a clinical intake.
  • What kind of Insurance do you take? We accept all major medical insurances, Medical Assistance, Private Insurance, Medicare, & Primary Adult Care. Corsica River will turn no one away for their inability to pay or for lack of insurance coverage. Also, Corsica River has a few payment options available for no income-moderate income individuals and families without health insurance. Sliding Scale payment and self pay payment options are available.
  • I can’t pay and don’t have insurance. Can you help me? Yes, we can help! And, we won’t turn you away because you can’t pay or don’t have insurance.
  • Is there a wait list?  Yes, but the wait time is not long.  There is a 2-3 week wait list for individuals with private insurance.  For Medical Assistance or Medicare, Corsica River can accommodate appointments within 5-10 business days.
  • Can I just see the doctor?  No, treatment is more effective when therapy is combined with medication. All clients will have a clinical intake conducted by a licensed behavioral health professional. If medications are needed a referral will be made to the Psychiatrist or Nurse Practitioner for Psychiatric Evaluation.  The treating behavioral health professional and Psychiatrist/Nurse Practitioner must agree that therapy is not needed for a client to only see the doctor for continued medication management.
  • What kind of counseling services do you have? Corsica River provides individual counseling, family counseling and marriage and couples counseling.  We have a multi-disciplinary staff that are credentialed to see children, teens, adults and geriatric populations with a wide range of needs.  Please visit our Services page for more information.

The bags were delivered today, along with a lovely card to let them know that they are missed.These are the kind of relationships that make all the difference for our clients, and we are so #grateful. ...

While this picture might not look like much, it means a lot to us! Our Healthy Transitions Young Adult Program opened up for a small in-person group last night with a self-love theme. We worked on cooking and team-building skills. It was so good to see them and give them an opportunity to safely connect with one another.
