No need for health insurance to start care

No health insurance? No problem!

Some people believe that a person seeking help for a mental health or addiction issue has to have some form of insurance in order to start seeing someone.

But MHRS has always sought to break down barriers to behavioral health care, especially around cost. Sure, many people seeking help DO have insurance, whether it's through an employer, Medicaid, or a managed care plan.

But if you don't have insurance, there are alternatives to help. You can start services and at the same time work with someone at that agency to apply for Medicaid coverage, if you qualify, or look into getting insurance through the exchange. You may qualify for subsidized coverage through the exchange, too.

If you have questions, give us a call at (513) 695-1695 or talk with someone at the agency where you seek care.
