Kaiser Permanente (KP)
No referral is needed to access behavioral health and addiction care services. Appointments can be made by calling (503-249-3434 or 1-855-632-8280), through kp.org, or through the KP app. You will be able to select whether you want an appointment for Therapy or for Psychiatric/Medication and also whether you want to make an appointment with a Kaiser provider or a provider contracted in the community. If you prefer to see a provider contracted in the community, you will be given a list of providers (with urls) that you can research and contact on your own for availability. You will want to mention that your insurance coverage is with Kaiser.
If you are in crisis, you can get help 24/7 by calling Kaiser's crisis line (Safety Net) at 503-331-6425. This number is staffed by KP internal providers during business hours and connects to the Lines for Life service after hours. If calling after hours, your information will be provided to Kaiser so they can follow-up with you and provide further care if needed.
