Since 1985, the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center (RADC) has provided services to more than 15,000 Alzheimer’s patients and their families through the Rush Memory Clinic.
The Rush Memory Clinic is committed to providing expert consultations for patients with memory and thinking problems, caused by common diseases of the brain. The Rush Memory Clinic team includes neurologists, a neuropsychologist, geriatric psychiatrist, and other clinicians, who are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of persons with Alzheimer’s disease and other age related memory disorders.
Evaluations at the Rush Memory Clinic are typically two hours long. They involve neuropsychological tests to assess memory, language, and other thinking abilities. Patients are also clinically evaluated by our team of expert clinicians. The diagnosis and recommendations are discussed in detail with the patient and their family and also communicated to the referring provider for continuing care.
Referrals are needed from a provider involved in the care of the patient. The Rush Memory Clinic is in network with Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO, Medicare and Medicaid. If a patient has another insurance provider they will need to use their out of network benefits. Please check with your insurance to determine if prior approval is required, especially if you are enrolled in an health maintenance organization (HMO) or Medicaid replacement plan.
