Contact your insurance regarding benefits available to you. Depending on your insurance coverage, you may or may not qualify for Behavioral Health funding. Insurance eligibility factors will be discussed as part of the Comprehensive Assessment. If you know you are on a Pre-paid Medical Assistance Program (PMAP) for health insurance, you are suggested to contact your specific provider for substance abuse services. Chisago County is a provider for Medical Assistance and Blue Plus.
Not typically. After you are approved for Behavioral Health Funds, an appointment will be scheduled for the Comprehensive Assessment.
The professional that completes your assessment can assist you in finding a treatment facility that offers the level of care that's recommended for you.
You can inquire on treatment facility availability on the Fast-Tracker website.
If you have health insurance through the County/State (medical assistance or a pre-paid medical assistance plan), your insurance will cover 100% of treatment that is recommended for you.
If you have no insurance, or your insurance doesn't pay 100% of the treatment costs, you may be eligible for funding through the County. Eligibility is based on household size and income.
