Off-Campus Mental Health Providers
UCSC Student Referrals
Every year CAPS at UCSC refers hundreds of students off campus for therapy and psychiatric care. Student’s presenting concerns range in severity from adjustment issues, to suicidal ideation and psychosis. Our main goal is to get students the best mental health services the campus and the community have to offer.

Collaborating with CAPS
In becoming eligible for referrals from CAPS, we request that you get back to students we refer to you within two business days. If the demographic, insurance, or clinical information regarding your practice changes, please inform CAPS and the students you are seeing. You may inform CAPS by emailing the changes to: firstname.lastname@example.org. When a student becomes your client, you agree to provide all crisis stabilization services including evaluation and initiation of psychiatric hospitalization, and post hospitalization stabilization.
Increase the Likelihood of Receiving Referrals
Once a month, CAPS sends out a Survey Monkey via email to all providers on our referral list. This survey gives us information regarding your next available appointment and the number of openings you have available. Please take 5 minutes to fill out this survey when you receive it to help us keep your availability information up to date.
If you wish to refer a student for on campus psychiatric services, please fill out the form below and fax it to Edward Olvera at: 831-459-5116. CAPS psychiatry will likely be in touch with you if the student is given an appointment. Making a referral does not guarantee the student will be accepted as a CAPS psychiatry patient.

Student Health Insurance Plan
The health Insurance we offer students is Anthem Blue Cross. Approximately 50% of students have this insurance plan, and the other half have various different insurance plans. Please check with the student you are seeing to find out what insurance they have. If you are interested in becoming an Anthem Blue Cross Provider or have questions regarding becoming a provider, please contact Anthem Blue Cross at:
www.Anthem.com/ca or 1-800-888-2108.
If you are already an Anthem Blue Cross Provider and have questions related to claims, payment, processing, or other issues; you may contact their In-Network Provider Customer Services Department at: Phone: 1-800-677-6669, Fax: 1-800-258-3081. CAPS does not take insurance and is not affiliated with Anthem Blue Cross.
If a student you are seeing is having a psychiatric emergency please call 911 or the Dominican Behavioral Health Unit at: 831-462-7719. UCSC Counseling and Psychological Services does NOT offer same day or crisis psychiatric care.
If you have any further questions please contact Jenner Rosgen, Case Manager at: 831-459-2895 or email@example.com
Thank you for your interest in working with UCSC students.
