Let us Help You Understand Your Insurance Coverage 
smartphone_notebook.jpg We recognize that seeking treatment for an eating disorder can be overwhelming in itself. Dealing with additional hurdles, like learning insurance jargon so you can interpret your healthcare benefits is often a barrier to seeking or remaining in treatment. The good news is, it doesn't have to be this way. The Emily Program created an insurance verification tool to help guide you through the phone call with your insurance company.
At The Emily Program, we know that with the right treatment recovery from an eating disorder is possible. Access to our treatment services and different levels of care varies by insurance plan, so it's important that you understand what your insurance covers. Being informed and understanding your specific insurance plan, whether you are new to The Emily Program or you've been with us for some time, will allow you to focus on recovery instead of insurance issues. 
The insurance verification tool includes everything you will need to have ready for the phone call with your insurance provider and gives step-by-step instructions to help you understand what services your specific benefits cover. 
We hope this allows you to better understand your coverage and focus more on your recovery. 

If you do have questions about our services and coverage, or want to make an initial appointment, please contact our Client Management Team at (888) EMILY-77 (888-364-5977).
