Off Campus Referrals for Students

 

Below is a list of resources and tools that can help with searching for an off campus provider.

Students may seek out or be referred to mental health providers off campus for a variety of reasons. These may include wanting long-term therapy/treatment or seeking a particular specialization or approach.  Students can schedule an initial consultation at CAMHS to help identify the most appropriate services and care for their specific needs (schedule on Patient Portal ).

CAMHS Community Referral Coordinator, Alyssa Mauriello, LCSW provides students with additional support in the referral process as needed. If you have questions about finding an off campus therapist or would like a referral, please send a secure message on your patient portal to "CAMHS Referral Coordinator".

 

Insurance and Cost information

Students enrolled in SHIP can visit 
https://hushp.harvard.edu/mental-health-benefits or call member services (617-495-2008) if you have any questions about your coverage. 
 
If you are enrolled in a different insurance plan, you will need to contact your insurance directly to learn more about your benefits and potential out of pocket costs. Below are some important questions to ask when calling:
 
  • Does my plan cover Behavioral Health services in Massachusetts? (or wherever you are located)
  • What is my co-pay for "In-Network" outpatient Behavioral Health visits?
  • Do I have a deductible, and if so what is the deductible for "In-Network" outpatient Behavioral Health services? How much of the deductible has already been met and when does it reset?
  • Do I have any "Out-of-network" benefits?
  • How can I find a list of in-network providers in my area?
