SHAKER HEIGHTS – The Hadden Clinic at Hanna Perkins Center for Child Development is now accepting Medicaid reimbursement for treatment of qualified families who have coverage through CareSource.
The clinic provides psychotherapy and other mental health services to children and adolescents to age 18. It also specializes in treatment of Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders for mothers.
CareSource, based in Dayton, is a leading Medicaid managed-care plan serving Northeast Ohio.
Being in-network with CareSource allows the Hadden Clinic to fill an important service gap in mental health care for under-represented populations, according to Clinical Director Kimberly Bell, Ph.D.
“We’ve always served disadvantaged populations by making use of sliding-scale fees, and we’ll continue to do so,” Bell said. “But this increases our capacity significantly to provide intensive psychotherapy to an underserved population that needs it the most.”
Hadden Clinic also accepts Medical Mutual of Ohio, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, UnitedHealthcare and Aetna.
The Hadden Clinic is easily accessible via public transportation. Located within the Hanna Perkins Center for Child Development, it’s one block off the Shaker Rapid (RTA Green Line) at the Courtland Station.
