What Ages Do You Provide Services To?

We proudly run on the promise of “zero barrier care.” Under this promise, we do not limit the ages that we serve. Still, in most cases, we don’t recommend services for children younger than school-aged, as those children are often best served by early intervention specialists. However, we are very willing to provide assessment and evaluation services to children and adolescents of any age. If we believe anyone, regardless of age, would be better served by another provider, we will make that recommendation and assist you in arranging for services that can best meet your needs. 

Adolescents who start service here can also transition from minor care to adult care services if necessary as well.

How Long Will My Child Need To Receive Services?

This answer can change based on factors such as:

  • Specific diagnosis
  • Acuity and duration of symptoms
  • Personal motivation and willingness to engage in services
  • Personal support systems
  • The presence of both mental health and substance abuse issues (dual diagnosis)
  • Personal goals for care

Perspective can also make a big difference in how long services are necessary. With an illness removal perspective, services will be needed just long enough to reduce or manage negative symptoms, which can take a few weeks to a year. However, with a wellness promotion perspective, the focus will be enhancing the positive aspects of life, and preventing future issues. This approach may take more time, as it is like exercising, but for mental well-being instead of physical.

What is important is to note that regardless of approach, you will always have control over your child’s care. PATH will work collaboratively with you to develop meaningful treatment goals that focus on individual needs. 

You will also review progress regularly to determine whether ongoing care is still the right choice for your child.

What Type of Funding Is Accepted?

PATH is primarily funded through state Medicaid funding and income-sensitive payment models. Each state may have a different name for the programs that manage Medicaid funds, but PATH accepts funding from all agencies that manage and distribute Medicaid payments. In cases where Medicaid funding is not an option, PATH is happy to enter into a fee for service arrangement with individuals that reflects your individual ability to pay for services.

Sliding Pay Scale Rates

PATH Behavioral Healthcare will not discriminate in the provision of health care services to an individual:

  • Because the individual is unable to pay for the health care services; 
  • Because payment for those services would be made under Medicare, Medicaid, or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP); or 
  • Based upon the individual’s race, color, sex, age, national origin, disability, religion, gender identity or sexual orientation.
