Genesis Behavioral Hospital accepts most insurance and managed care plans, Medicare, & Medicaid. Our staff will be happy to investigate insurance benefits or private payment options, as well as negotiate a single individual case agreement rate with a company that the hospital is not affiliated with.


After speaking to an Admissions Coordinator, the clinical information will be reviewed by the treatment team to determine if the client meets clinical criteria for inpatient admission.


Upon arrival to the hospital, the client will be assessed in the Admissions Department. If the client is appropriate for admission and admission orders have been received from the accepting physician, all of the consents and admission paperwork will be completed. The patient will then be escorted to the unit and assigned a room. The staff will begin orienting the new patient to the program, and various clinical evaluations will begin.


Accommodations are semi-private (2 patients per room) with a shared bathroom.
