We’ve made the admission process at Fairview Treatment Center simple and easy for your convenience. Call us today at (985) 395-6750 ext. 100 and ask for our admissions coordinator, Stephonia Kirt (Steph), to get the process started.
Important information about the admissions process
- Fairview Treatment Center will verify your Medicaid status. If your Medicaid is up to date, we can conduct a brief phone assessment to determine preliminarily if you qualify for the level of care that we provide. If you do, we will schedule an admit appointment and after your arrival, we will secure a service authorization, which will determine your length of stay with us.
- Fairview Treatment Center does accept private insurance. It is very important for you to tell us if you have private insurance and Medicaid because we are obligated to notify your private carrier, your Medicaid becomes secondary. Fairview Treatment Center is only in-network with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana and United Health Care at this time. All other private insurance carriers are considered out of network. However, we will file your claim to an out of network insurance carrier.
- Self-pay clients are also accepted. Self-pay clients may also be eligible for state block grant coverage. In order to determine eligibility for state block grant coverage, the client must report to the nearest state-funded outpatient clinic for a substance abuse assessment. This assessment will be evaluated and processed through our regional office. Once eligibility is determined and approved, the client can be scheduled to be admitted.
