Behavioral Health Access Center

To meet the needs of our community, Saint Clare’s has a central number for patients and callers to request information on a variety of behavioral health services.  The Behavioral Health Access Center aims to bridge the gap between a caller’s request for services and the prompt receipt of those services by telephone or in person.

We accept referrals from a variety of sources, including primary care physicians, educators, managed care companies, service agencies and individual providers.

Our intake schedulers are educated in community resources and can assist with referring to services offered outside of those available through Saint Clare’s Behavioral Health Services.  Spanish speaking schedulers are also available.

The Behavioral Health Access Center provides an array of vital services to patients, families and provider organizations including:

  • Telephone screening
  • Scheduling of appointments
  • Insurance verification
  • Pre-certification of initial evaluations
  • Back to school evaluations
  • Level of care evaluations
  • Community referrals and information
  • Substance abuse evaluation

The Behavioral Health Access Center is available Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

For more information, call the Behavioral Health Access Center toll-free number at 1-888-626-2111.
