Same Day Assessment

What to Expect:

COMCARE’s Same Day Assessment is an open access first stop for Sedgwick County residents to seek help from COMCARE’s mental health and addiction services. This means that we will do our best to see you today. As soon as you arrive at the appropriate location you will be checked in for an assessment. You will be triaged and then seen by the first available clinician. A COMCARE therapist will meet with you, gather information, take a brief history of any prior mental health/addiction treatment services, current medical problems, and discuss possible treatment options with you. We work hard to complete a thorough, individualized assessment in order to best meet your specific needs. Please expect the assessment process to take 45 minutes to 2 hours once you are with a clinician.  If COMCARE is the best agency to serve your needs, your first appointment will be scheduled.

What should I bring with me?

1. Insurance card. Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance accepted. Self-pay based on a sliding scale is accepted as a form of payment for services. All are served regardless of ability to pay.

2. Proof of income. COMCARE provides a sliding fee scale based on household income. Please bring verification of your household income which may include pay stubs or benefit statements.

3. Identification. Bring a copy of your identification as well as identifying information for youth coming in to services. Examples include: Drivers License, Social Security Card, School ID, Military ID, or other photo ID.

4. Proof of Guardianship. If you are bringing a child to an assessment and you are not the biological parent, we must have proof of guardianship. If you do not have one please use the accepted Power of Attorney Document. The document MUST be notarized.

5. Mental Health Records. If you or your child being assessed have received or are currently receiving mental health services, it is beneficial to ask other providers to share information in order to best collaborate care. Please communicate with your providers to release information. You may also bring any information to the appointment with you.

Who can refer me?

You do not need a referral to access COMCARE’s programs and services. We do, however, accept referrals from family members, family physicians, hospitals, therapist, the legal system, community agencies, place of employment and other concerned persons.
