Important COVID-19 Updates

Compass Clinical Associates will re-open for in-person appointments on April 15, 2021. Tele-practice will remain an option for clients so long as insurance will cover tele-practice sessions. It is the responsibility of our clients to know if their specific insurance coverage will pay for specific services. Claims denied by insurance are the responsibility of the client. We strongly recommend that patients contact their health insurance provider to know what insurance will cover. Patients should check on the continuation of tele-practice coverage. Any services not covered by insurance are the patient’s responsibility to pay.

We ask that everyone who comes inside the building wear a mask. We apologize for any inconvenience, but our number one priority is keeping everyone as safe as we possibly can. If you have any questions about this new protocol please feel free to call our office at (515) 412-5112.

If you are needing to send a picture of your insurance card, send medical forms to your provider, or any other requests, please go to the “contact” tab and fill out the Contact Form. You will be able to attach your document/picture if needed then hit submit. Your message and attachments will be submitted to our office and we will be in contact with you.
