JOHNSON CITY (July 16, 2014) – The Behavioral Health and Wellness Clinic (BHWC) at East Tennessee State University is now participating in the Blue Care, TennCare Select and Cover Kids insurance programs.
The clinic serves as the clinical training arm of the ETSU Ph.D. program in psychology and provides individual, family and couples mental health services for children, teens and adults, in addition to a wide range of psychological assessment services.
The BHWC opened seven years ago and is managed under the auspices of the ETSU Department of Psychology. All clinicians are doctoral students in psychology and are supervised by licensed psychologists.
“Being able to accept these insurance programs allows us to expand our outreach within the community and to improve access to mental health services,” said Dr. Kerry Holland, BHWC director. “We have an outstanding team of providers here at ETSU and are able to accommodate new appointments within a timely fashion.”
In addition to accepting referrals from these insurance programs, the clinic also bills on a sliding scale fee system.
The center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. with some evening appointments. It is located on the ETSU campus, and free parking for patrons is available. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, call 423-439-7777.
