Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if I forget to show up for an appointment or cancel too late?

If you don't show for an appointment or if you cancel less than 24 hours before your appointment time, you will automatically be charged $50 to the credit card we have on file for you. IMPORTANT: If you are using insurance to cover your visits, your insurance company will not cover any portion of this charge, therefore, the full $50 fee will be charged directly to you regardless of your normal copay. In addition, HSA and FSA debit cards cannot cover the costs of late cancellation fees and no show fees.

What if someone else is paying for my sessions?

If someone else is paying for your sessions, we will need a 3rd Party Agreement Form signed by the paying party and on file in our office before your first appointment.

Why do I have to pay in advance for my first appointment?

When you accept an appointment time, our counselor will set aside that time and is committed to being there for you. The pre-paid fee is a commitment on your part that you will come to your first appointment. If you are unable to keep your appointment it is important to notify us at least 24 hours in advance to avoid a cancellation fee. After your first appointment you will pay as you go.

Does Branches accept TennCare or Medicaid?

Regrettably, the State of Tennessee does not permit Branches to accept clients who have TennCare or Medicaid insurance, even if the client is willing to come as a self-pay client. The state has designated providers that are pre-authorized to accept these insurances.

For clients with these insurances, we refer to: DePriest Center: (931) 486-8670; Kimara Wilson-Clarke: (931) 368-3234; Sabin Behavioral Health: (615) 656-3211; Crayton Counseling & Associates (615) 590-3741; Scott Russell (615) 977-0052


These counselors we recommend may not be able to take TennCare, but are not limited to the same rules that we are here at Branches.

What insurance plans does Branches accept?

This varies based on the service you are interested in and counselor or provider you are seeing. Insurance availability for counseling is very limited while many commercial plans are accepted for our psychiatric medication management and weight management services.
