FAQs

Do you accept insurance?

We do not participate in any insurance networks and do not accept insurance coverage as payment.

Can I seek reimbursement from my insurance?

If you desire, the office will provide a statement containing the necessary billing codes and information to submit your claim to your insurance company.

What is the current practice policy regarding masks and other public health measures in response to COVID?

The ability to observe your child’s body language and facial expressions is an essential component of any clinical encounter. Dr. Grcevich will discuss options for conducting appointments without masks or other interventions interfering with non-verbal communication during any public health emergency in a manner that complies with all applicable guidelines or advisories in the State of Ohio.

Do you really make house calls and offer the option of doing evaluations and follow-up visits in my home?

Absolutely! Dr. Grcevich provides services via telemedicine, in your home, at your child’s school or in a traditional office setting. Charges for services are the same regardless of where they are delivered, except as set forth below. Dr. Grcevich may insist upon in-person encounters for clinical or regulatory reasons.

In-home appointments or school-based meetings within 30 minutes of Chagrin Falls will not incur an additional charge. In-home appointments more than 30 minutes from the office that can’t be scheduled immediately before or after another appointment in the area will result in a surcharge for travel time billed at 50% of the Dr. Grcevich’s hourly rate on a pro-rated basis.

For families who prefer a traditional office setting, Dr. Grcevich offers these appointments at Nexis Wellness, 25201 Chagrin Blvd., Suite 390, Beachwood OH 44122.

 

What age range of patients does Dr. Grcevich see?

Dr. Grcevich’s practice is limited to child and adolescent psychiatry. He may consider accepting new patients over the age of 18 on a case-by-case basis.

When can my child come to the office or participate in a appointment via telemedicine without a parent being present?

Since youth under the age of 18 require the consent of a parent to make changes in their medication regimen, parents are required to participate in all appointments until their child turns 18.

For how long will Dr. Grcevich continue to follow patients?

The practice may continue to provide ongoing care for patients who have reached age 18 after taking into consideration developmental factors and the severity of a patient’s illness. In other circumstances, the practice may insist patients in need of ongoing care to transition to mental health practitioners who routinely care for adults or their primary care practice.

  • Youth over age 18 who have graduated high school, are not pursuing higher education, are employed full-time or close to full-time and living independently from their families are usually encouraged to transition to adult practitioners.

  • Youth over age 18 with complicated conditions who may require treatments not well-studied or approved for use in the child and adolescent population will be encouraged to transition to practitioners routinely offering psychiatric care to adults.

  • Youth over age 18 who spend much of the year away at college and require frequent and regular appointments, especially youth attending college out of state who don’t come home on a regular basis will be required to transition to practitioners located near their college.

  • Youth over the age of 18 who are attending college, require only routine follow-up for medication management, are available for follow-up visits in the State of Ohio may be followed until completion of their first college degree and a brief period to allow time for relocation and identification of new care providers.

  • Youth with intellectual or developmental disabilities whose parents or caregivers hold Medical Power of Attorney may be followed until age 26.

Does Dr. Grcevich do “talk therapy?”

Dr. Grcevich's expertise is primarily in assessment - figuring out why your child is experiencing their current struggles - and thoughtful, conservative use of medication. While he is qualified to do "talk therapy," in most instances in which psychotherapy is indicated he makes referrals to a number of excellent practices in Northeast Ohio where talk therapy is the primary focus of what they do.
