Frequently Asked Questions about Counseling
"What is counseling?"
Counseling is when you meet with a caring professional to talk about the events, people, situations and issues that are negatively affecting your ability to live a happy and productive life. At MASTERPEACE you can safely, comfortably, and confidentially discuss your thoughts, behaviors and/or feelings to make healthy changes to those events, situations, and issues.
"How do I start counseling?"
Start your healing process by calling our Intake Coordinator at 517-423-6889. The Intake Coordinator will ask you for some basic personal and insurance information. (Masterpeace does not obtain personal background information through the internet.) The Intake Coordinator will verify your insurance coverage (if you have insurance) and match your needs with one of our qualified therapists. Finally, your assigned therapist will contact you to schedule an initial appointment.
"How will I pay for counseling?"
In order to better serve you, we participate with over fifty insurance plans including, but not limited to, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, M-Care, PPOM, Aetna, ComPsych, Cigna, and Value Options. Insurance maybe contacted through their secure internet websites for eligibility, benefit information, and authorizations. During the intake process, our Intake Coordinator will discuss the fees and payment options with you. Your therapist will finalize the financial arrangements with you during your initial session.
