Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Child and Adolescent Therapy in Dayton, OH

Thomas Packard, Ph.D.

I am busy revising this section of the website. Please check back soon for answers to more frequently asked questions.

Do you take CareSource?

No. I am not part of the CareSource provider network, and unfortunately they will not pay for my services.

Do you take my insurance?

The only commercial insurance network that I belong to is Aetna. There are other insurance companies that seem to pay me regularly (for example Tricare), or that may reimburse you for all or a portion of my charges. The only way to know if you are covered for my services is to call your insurance company directly, and ask about me by name. Even if you are covered, you may have to satisfy a deductible that will make you responsible for most of the cost of our work together. You are responsible for finding out whether or not your insurance will pay for your child to see me.

How long have you been working as a psychologist?

I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Child and Family Psychology in 1986, and have been licensed as a psychologist in Ohio since 1987.
