Answers to Most Frequently Asked Questions regarding Our Higher Levels of Care/Intensive Treatment Programs

We can provide the care and treatment needed so that you can achieve the successful outcomes that you desire and deserve.  Call us and set up an initial assessment and consultation.  This is required so that our clinicians can determine the most appropriate treatment program and level of care for your condition.  If you are making the decision to obtain intensive treatment, we will be here with you every step of the way.  If you are worried about a loved one, we can help you understand the benefits of our program, but it is essential that your loved one is willing to participate.  We empower our patients to find the strength to find the path that best suits them, while healing as individuals.


Insurance is so confusing!  Will my insurance cover higher levels of care/intensive treatment at Inner Door Center®?


We know that insurance can be very confusing and the last thing you want to do, when getting into treatment is the overall goal, therefore our staff works with each you individually to make sure that you understand your health plan benefits.  As a courtesy to you, the staff at Inner Door Center® completes all verification of eligibility and benefits, pre-authorizations and necessary case reviews.


Why do I need to obtain medical clearance before entering our higher levels of care along with several other assessments?


In addition to being accredited by the Joint Commission and adhering to the Michigan Mental Health Code, we follow the American Psychiatric Association Guidelines for Eating Disorders along with the ASAMPPC-2R, ASAM Patient Placement Criteria for the Treatment of Substance Related Disorders, which all guide our clinical policies.  These policies are designed to keep you safe during our programs and establishes a relationship with our team of professionals should you need further medical, psychiatric or psychological intervention or follow up care.


Why must I only work with Inner Door Center®’s treatment professionals while I am in the intensive programs?


Our intensive programs require coordination of care and can be must successfully accomplished when all practitioners are working together.  We hold regular and frequent case conferences regarding your care, while your insurance company requires continuity of care in order to continue authorization care along with payment for services.  You will be referred back to your originating treatment team following discharge from our programs, and your referring team will be kept in the loop of your care, should you authorize.


Why is a deposit required for admission into our higher level of care programs?


Inner Door Center® could not offer you the higher levels of treatment without securing fees in advance.  Each patient in our intensive programs has a very high staff to patient ratio.  In order to sustain our programs for current as well as future patients, we have found it necessary to require prepayment of all co-pays, deductibles, and non-covered services in advance.  An additional deposit may also be required and other stipulations apply that will be discussed with you prior to rendering services.  This is an investment in your care so that you can focus on treatment.


My insurance plan doesn’t cover treatment and/or I have been denied the level of care of treatment that I need. What can I do?


You may want to contact your employer’s human resources department staff to see if they can offer you any assistance – especially if your company has over 51 employees and/or is self-insured.  For patients who struggle with eating disorders, please refer to or  Lisa Kantor and Elizabeth Wrobel are both attorneys committed to helping individuals with eating disorders whose insurance company does not cover or denies care for eating disorders.


On the other hand, here are reasons why some people choose not to use insurance:
  • More privacy and increased confidentiality
  • You will not have to wait for authorization for coverage.
  • You can extend your treatment as needed, and you do not have to worry about insurance benefits running out before your treatment is complete
  • Medical expenses may be tax deductible
Should you decide to call other treatment facilities that work with insurance, it is in your best interest to ask the following:
  • What would my financial responsibility be in the event insurance provider denies coverage before I complete treatment?
  • What happens if I do not have the funds to pay the remaining costs? Will I be discharged from treatment?
  • What is the full cost of treatment and are there any potential additional costs (Detox fees, physician fees, psychologist/psychiatrist fees, medications and specialty services)?
