Ware's Article on Conflict and Spirituality.
Availability AND Finanacial resources accepted
Dr. Ware and Atlanta Family Psychiatry,
Inc. continue to accept both private pay as well as
clients who choose to use third party (insurance companies)
pay resources. Dr. Ware continues to be one of the
very few if any Child, Adolescent, Adult and Family
Psychiatrists that will spend 2-3 hours face to face
with a new client (including insurance clients). While
Insurance companies pay 3-4 times more to providers
if the provider will spend less than an hour with
a client (e.g. 10-15 minutes), it is Dr Ware's opinion
that a 10-15 minute session is entirely inadequate.
Due to the extremely poor reimbursement rate from
third party resources (for adequate length visits),
our huge referral volume, and the need to maintain
the quality of services offered, AFPI has found it
necessary to manage the number of insurance clients
being served at any one time. If the potential client
chooses to use insurance as their financial resource
they may have to wait at times as much as 2-3 months
or longer for an initial appointment. AFPI continues
to welcome insurance clients and regrets any wait
for services that may be necessary. If the insured
client chooses to use AFPI services for their family
we are pleased to receive emails concerning their
interest. When the practice can serve their needs
the client will be contacted. Appointments are offered
on a first come first served basis at that point.
