Family Care at Home Base
At Home Base, “family” is anyone who cares about a Veteran or Service Member–spouses, partners, parents, siblings, children, and close friends. This is why our model of care encompasses 3 generations of military family members and friends. Home Base removes barriers to care:
- Home Base treats the family members of Veterans and Service Members regardless of their ability to pay. If the family member of a Veteran has insurance, Home Base bills it, but will pay for anything not covered by insurance including co-pays. If a family member does not have insurance, Home Base covers 100% of treatment, at no cost to the patient.
- Home Base pays for appointment parking at our National Center of Excellence at One Constitution Wharf, Charlestown, MA. .
Family mental health care is available in our regional Outpatient Clinic and our Wellness and Education programs.
Home Base’s Clinical Team is multidisciplinary, and consists of psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers from Massachusetts General Brigham Hospital located in Boston, MA. U.S. News & World Report ranks Massachusetts General Brigham Hospital and their psychiatry department #3 in the nation. MGB’s ties to Harvard Medical School, as an affiliated teaching hospital, afford a pipeline of the best and brightest clinicians to Home Base.
Our clinical team is highly skilled in the delivery of culturally competent mental health care to military family members. They are knowledgeable and experienced in treating the unique demands of military marriage and child-rearing, as well as the challenges of living with service-related mental health issues.
