Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
Children’s TiPS is available to children and adolescents in western Pennsylvania who are insured by Pennsylvania’s Medical Assistance (Medicaid) Program, Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and UPMC commercial insurance. This provider-to-provider service gives primary care clinicians (PCCs) access to on-call psychiatrists, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
For more information, please call 1-844-WPA-TiPS / 1-844- 972-8477.
When a PCC calls, the Children’s TiPS team will connect him or her with a child and adolescent psychiatrist within the same day, often within thirty minutes. Our TiPS psychiatrists can answer questions about medications, diagnoses, screening tools, resources and other topics. TiPS psychiatrists can also refer patients to our care coordinators or licensed therapists if needed.
