New Client Forms
Send completed forms to:
Fax: (714) 556-5960
If you are unable to receive the forms in advance of your session, please plan on arriving 15-20 minutes early to your scheduled initial appointment so that you can fill out the paperwork prior to your first visit.
Your psychiatrist or therapist will review these forms and the information you provide at your first visit, as well as answer any additional questions you may have.
At South Coast Psychiatry, we do not take any type of insurance and our doctors are considered out-of-network providers for all insurance panels. We will not bill your insurance directly for any services. However, we will provide you with a receipt for any services provided so that you may bill your own insurance for whatever reimbursement they will provide. Although we will not be billing your insurance directly, some patients do go through their insurance for medications, which often requires additional authorization from our office. Having your insurance information on file will make it easier for our office to expedite any of these requests.
Credit Card Authorization
When you make an appointment at South Coast Psychiatry, we will block that time out for you in your clinician's schedule, and in return request that you fill out a credit card authorization form. Your card will only be charged in the event of a cancellation less than 48 business hours in advance of your appointment, or for any services rendered (telephone session, report writing, etc.) without payment provided at the time of service.
Consent for Release of Information
Please fill out this form if you have another doctor or therapist, or friend or family member, whom you would like your doctor to contact to obtain or give information about your diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, etc. You can specify to whom the information should be released, and what type of information can be shared. At South Coast Psychiatry, we believe in close cross-collaboration between treating clinicians (i.e., having your psychiatrist and psychologist talk about your care) and in coordination of primary care and psychiatry. Having a Consent for Release of Information form allows your psychiatrist or therapist to provide you the best integrated care possible.
