How Do I Get Started

The enrollment process

To begin the enrollment process, a new client intake is scheduled with an intake counselor. The intake department can be reached at: 520 539-2558. This process generally takes about an hour where we gather background information, current symptoms and issues, and make financial arrangements. We accept most major insurance plans, including Cigna, Aetna, United Health Care, Blue Cross & Blue Shield, Tricare and some Medicare plans.  Our intake department will work with each insurance company to get authorization for treatment and will also provide you with any out-of-pocket cost. New clients that may need to self-pay for services, our financial department will help you develop a payment plan that will enable you to receive the care you need. We also accept Visa and Mastercard payments.

You can expect to begin working with us quickly as our team finalizes the intake process. During the intake process we help you to determine what level of care you need and establish a start date. Once the intake process is completed a therapist will contact you to schedule the first appointment.

A doctor’s note is required before starting the programs for Disordered Eating and Binge Eating program. You can bring the note at the time of intake or before starting your first group. The note can be fax to the office at: (520) 325-1040.

What to bring to the Intake appointment

  • Current Insurance Card
  • Drivers License or other ID
  • Credit Card or other payment method for any co-pays or deductible
  • Doctors note for those enrolling in the Eating Disorder program
  • Current medication list
  • Any referral documentation from your doctor or therapist. (not required but nice if you have it)

If you have any questions, please contact the office at (520) 531-1040 or the Intake department at(520) 539-2258. Email: desertmilagros@comcast.net.

We Look forward to working with you!
