The purpose of the initial consultation or appointment will be for you and Coe’s confidential staff to determine which service(s) best suit your individual needs and get you connected with these services.  
If you are unsure where to start and have access to health insurance, call your customer service number on the back of your insurance card to see what providers in the area accept your insurance and are accepting new patients. Many companies are waiving co-pays and reducing fees associated with services during this time. If you do not have health insurance or are underinsured, there may be options you have for free or sliding fee scale services. For questions, please contact Health & Wellness Services.
