No insurance?


It is possible to receive mental health care without insurance!

You can start by calling the Maine Mental Health Crisis Hotline: 1-888-568-1112. Their professional staff can help you find the resources you need or you can use the decision aid below for help.

These options may help:

  • MaineCare: In Maine, people who qualify may receive MaineCare coverage regardless of age. For more information, go the Maine Department of Health and Human Services website or call DHHS at (207) 287-3707. Applying for MaineCare can be frustrating and confusing for some people. The staff at the Department of Health and Human Services are able to assist you.
  • CarePartners: If your loved one lives in Augusta, Belfast, Damariscotta, Portland, Waterville, or a surrounding town, they may qualify for services through CarePartners. To find out if your loved one is eligible, call 1-877-626-1684.
  • Free services: Some Maine communities may offer free mental health services. Call the Maine Crisis Hotline at 1-888-568-1112 for help in determining if your community offers free services.
  • Hospitals may also provide free services to people who do not have insurance.  There are qualification guidelines for this free care, but it is worth a call to the hospital for more information.

Keep in mind…

  • There’s often a wait time for the first appointment — sometimes even a few weeks before you or your loved one can be seen. It can be discouraging to reach out for help only to discover the doctor or therapist is not accepting new patients. Keep trying! It may take time, but eventually you’ll find a local provider who can help.
