We provide referrals to an appropriate level of psychiatric care. Individuals of all ages are evaluated by a licensed clinician. Those receiving services from Psychiatric Urgent Care must do so voluntarily, be medically stable, be free from drugs or alcohol, and be able to safely wait for evaluation in an outpatient clinic setting. When coming to Psychiatric Urgent Care, please be sure to bring your photo ID and insurance card.

We strive to serve everyone that walks through our doors, and clinician availability is dependent on demand.

Licensed clinicians at Psychiatric Urgent Care do not write or refill prescriptions.

Insurance and Paying for Your Visit

Patients are expected to pay their co-pay at the time services are rendered. We participate with Maryland Medicaid and Medicare, as well as many major insurance companies (including CareFirst, CIGNA, Aetna, and United Healthcare). Because of variations between policies, it is best to contact your insurer directly to determine whether we are in their network for your plan.
