How do you see us if you have Kaiser?
Central Counseling Services has a contract with Beacon, which manages patients access to care outside the Kaiser system. If you are a Kaiser member you may be able to use your benefits to see our staff for the cost of your co-pay. (If you have Kaiser Medi-Cal or some ACA plans you may not be allowed by Kaiser to go outside their system.)
How do you access CCS for your care?
Call your local Kaiser Mental Health office and schedule an intake appointment.
Attend the appointment and tell the intake therapist that you have an established relationship with CCS and want to come here for your care.
Have the intake person send a request for a Beacon referral to their in-house Beacon liaison and get that person’s.
Check back with that person in three days to ensure it has been processed.
When Beacon calls they will give you the referral number, number of sessions, and co-pay. With that you can call us and schedule your appointment.
