Mayo Clinic works with hundreds of insurance companies and is an in-network provider for millions of people. In most cases, Mayo Clinic doesn't require a physician referral. Some insurers require referrals or may have additional requirements for certain medical care. All appointments are prioritized on the basis of medical need.
At Mayo Clinic's campus in Minnesota, specialists in the Department of Psychiatry and Psychology coordinate treatment with nurses, dietitians and other medical professionals. Treatment includes a combination of psychotherapy, medical care, medications and nutrition consultation.
If needed, hospitalization for children and teenagers is available through the Child, Adolescent and Family Treatment Program. The family-based therapy program at Mayo Clinic includes parents and other family members as a crucial part of the treatment team.
