The UCS offers an initial consultation appointment for the purposes of discussing your concerns and arriving at the best course of action for resolution of your concerns. Sometimes, due to special requirements for care, ineligibility for our services, or other reasons, you and the UCS counselor or consultant may decide that a referral to another agency or service provider would be most beneficial. The UCS counselor or consultant may offer you several referral options or invite you to meet with our Clinical Case Manager. Our Clinical Case Manager has extensive information and knowledge about the various services and agencies available on campus and within the larger Iowa City community. The Case Manager can offer assistance with finding the best fit referral, talk with you about your insurance coverage benefits, offer support and guidance, help you schedule the first appointment, and follow up with you to make sure you’re getting the help you needed.
If you’d like to pursue open-ended or specialized mental health services on your own and plan to use your own insurance, please consider reviewing our self-help document to assist you in the process: “Using Your Insurance for Open-Ended or Specialize Mental Health Services”
In order to schedule an appointment with our Clinical Case Manager, please call (319) 335-7294.
