FAQ

Is this covered by MSP?

  • The program is not yet covered. Some of the physician fees are.
  • WorkSafe has covered some participants.

Do you take over mental health care for the patient?

We work collaboratively with the participants’ primary mental health care provider to ensure collaborative safe care. This is a time limited program which compliments other forms of treatment. This is not a substitute for other forms of care and expect participants to maintain a relationship with their care team outside of Roots to Thrive including their referring provider.
