• "Sometimes the bravest and most important thing you can do is just show up." — Brené Brown

  • Fees & Insurances

  • Access to Care is Priceless

    Our approach at be Collaborative Care provides customized care for each patient and we will work with you and your insurance company to provide the integrated therapy treatment experience that your recovery deserves

  • be Collaborative Care is “in-network” with Blue Cross Blue Shield for Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), outpatient groups and all individual therapy.  We have entered into Single Case Agreements with United Health Care, Tufts Health Plans, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and AETNA Health Insurance on multiple occasions.  All plans may have deductibles, co-payments and/or co-insurance requirements as well as be subject to pre-certification.

    At the IOP level of care, insurance companies may require a demonstration of “medical necessity” before they will authorize treatment, even though the treatment is a benefit covered under the member’s contract. Our admissions team will assess “medical necessity” and make a recommendation about treatment. If the insurance company agrees with our recommendation, the admission will likely be approved, including the type of service and the number of days authorized for your care.

    Our outpatient therapy and nutrition services are contracted with the following companies:

    Blue Cross Blue Shield
    Harvard Pilgrim Health Care
    Tufts Health Plan
    United Healthcare

    Brown Student Health Insurance (United Healthcare Student Resources)
    Johnson & Wales University (United Healthcare)
    Providence College (United Healthcare)
    RISD Student Health Insurance (United Healthcare)
    University of Rhode Island (URI) Student Insurance (United Healthcare)

     If your insurance company does not have a contract with be Collaborative:

    We are in the process of contracting with other insurance companies and until then, if your insurer is not contracted with be Collaborative Care, we will attempt to obtain an individual case agreement with your insurance company. Patients and families can also pay for eating disorder treatment privately.

    If you are paying for treatment yourself:

    Patients who receive services that are not covered by insurance will be required to sign a letter indicating they or their guarantor are responsible for payment of all fees.
