Chicagoland Community Referral Database

Chicago skyline along lakeshore path

For students searching for therapeutic services off campus, we offer a database of mental health providers in the Chicago area below. Many of these providers accept health insurance or offer reduced fees based on your income. It is important for you to verify provider information and contact your insurance company to confirm your coverage for that particular provider.

Click here to learn more about how to use your health insurance.

If you are unsure what types of mental health services may be right for you or need support finding a provider off campus, please call 312-996-3490 to schedule an initial consultation.

Sliding Scale Providers

Some providers offer what is called a “sliding scale fee,” which is  an out-of-pocket fee per session that “slides” to an amount that is based on household income and ability to pay. This can sometimes be a more affordable way for students who do not have insurance/prefer not to use their insurance to access care.

Getting Connected Using Campus Care

For Individual Therapy

Campus Care is essentially an HMO insurance, which means that all referrals to a specialist provider must be authorized by a primary care provider (PCP). In order to access mental health treatment using your Campus Care insurance, you will need to speak with a primary care physician at UIC Family Medicine (312-996-2901) about your mental health concerns. The PCP will authorize and provide referrals that accept Campus Care.  If you do not have a PCP yet, you can let Family Medicine know that you are trying to establish care because you are looking to obtain referrals for individual therapy/counseling in the community.

A Licensed Clinical Social Worker (or other licensed clinical professional) at Family Medicine could provide some very brief individual therapy sessions through the Collaborative Care Model (if recommended). This form of clinical support would occur while the PCP connects you to in-network referrals in the community. You can request this service through your PCP as well.

With Campus Care, students will usually have a $15 co-pay per session (due to the pandemic the co-pay has been waived until December 31st, 2021). For information about dates, fees, and how to get Campus Care coverage, click here.

For Psychiatry and Testing Services

Psychiatry and testing services are available through Campus Care at the Neuropsychiatric Institute (NPI), which is located on the west side of campus on 912 S Wood Street. You will still have to contact your PCP at Family Medicine to receive authorization for these services.

Per the Campus Care website:  “Students who are out of state: you will need to contact your primary care provider at your UI campus Primary Care Center to request a referral for care that is in the area where you are living currently.

Students who are in Illinois or Indiana: you can still utilize telehealth appointments with your Campus Care Primary Care provider. However, you must update your home address in your UI Health MyChart to your address in Illinois or Indiana in order for a physician to provide treatment.

Out of Network Care: 

Please contact your primary care physician at Family Medicine for direction on all non-emergent care. Out-of-network care authorized by your in-network primary care physician will be assessed at an in-network cost share and copayment. All members must establish a provider relationship prior to any referrals or treatment. This can currently be done remotely via a telehealth visit. Call your PCP for an appointment.
