To reach us, you can e-mail us through the Contact Us page. Our policy is to reply within 24 hours, and to schedule the first appointment within 72 hours.
We have 4 locations, Beachwood, Fairlawn, Strongsville and Rocky River. We are also able to make home visits when necessary, though insurance usually won’t pay for such services.
In the first sessions, the therapist will conduct a thorough evaluation, asking many questions of you, and if you are a minor, your family. It is important to get a good picture of what has been going on and what help you are looking for and need. You will leave the first session with recommendations for how to proceed and some immediate steps you can take to begin to feel better.
After making initial contact with us for an appointment, please complete the on-line insurance form under the New Client Forms tab. It automatically comes to the office so we can verify your coverage. Please print out he completed form and bring it and your insurance card to the first appointment. If possible, also print and complete the other 4 New Client Forms and bring to the first appointment.
We recognize that finding a well-trained eating disorders dietitian in N.E. Ohio is very difficult. The dietitians at The Hull Institute are experts in this field. You can see them while continuing with your current therapist. The same is true for participating in our groups.
Our years of experience confirm that people with eating disorders need to see therapists and dietitians specially trained to deal with these problems. Most therapists and dietitians agree that, without special training, they are ill-equipped to help people with eating disorders and obesity. Going to a therapist or dietitian who does not have extensive experience with eating disorders and obesity will most likely delay your recovery. This is true with addictions as well.
Insurance coverage and payment issues are complicated. At The Hull Institute, these issues never deter us from helping you. Here’s what you need to know:
a. If you have commercial insurance through your job, parents, or spouse, call the Member Customer Service number on the back of your card. Ask if The Hull Institute, LLC and/or New Beginnings Eating disorders Center are in network.
b. The Hull Institute and its providers are in most major networks including in the following major networks (and some smaller ones as well) including:
New Beginnings EDC is in some of the same plans, and others as well. Please call us for additional information.
Straight Ohio Medicaid will not pay for any of our services.
When in a network, we agree to accept what that network will pay. You are responsible for your co-pay and/or co-insurance.
