Payment and Insurance Information

Lakeside accepts most major, private and government-issued insurance plans, as well as all major credit cards. Out-of-Network plans can be accepted on a case-by-case basis. However, it is the ultimate responsibility of the patient for all fees associated with treatment and length of stay, including applicable co-pays and deductibles.

Lakeside has a wide range of payment options and financial arrangements can be made with our Financial Counseling Department prior to arrival or upon arrival. Our financial counseling team will work with each patient’s insurance company to discuss available benefits. However, Lakeside can make no guarantee for payment of benefits by any provider or individual policy.

It is advised that prior to admission, the prospective patient contact their insurance company to review applicable benefits. Lakeside will assist patients with verifying and filing for insurance benefits, however payment of claims will depend on the coverage provided by the agency.

Fees associated with residential treatment are based on a 28-day length of stay. Self-pay patients will be charged this fee upon admission. Co-pays and deductibles, as determined by individual insurance plans are also required upon admission. Patients who leave prior to completion of their recommended residential program will be charged any administrative service costs and physician fees.

Psychiatrists treating patients at Lakeside Behavioral Health System are independent contractors and not employed by the hospital. Physician fees will be billed separately by the physician.

Patients may be referred, assessed and admitted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
