do your therapists take health insurance

Question:

Do your recommended anxiety disorder therapists take health insurance?

 

Answer:

Some of our recommended therapists are eligible to be covered by certain health plans. Because each insurance provider is unique in what they will cover, you will need to ask your health plan provider the following questions:

  • Will your health plan provider cover Master Degree therapists, including psychotherapists (some health insurance plans only cover chartered psychologists, psychiatrists, or social workers but not Master Degree Therapists or psychotherapists)?
  • Will your health plan provider cover therapy at a distance, often referred to as “teletherapy,” “distance therapy,” or “distance counseling,” such as over the phone or Internet?

All of our recommended therapists are members of a governing body, which many health plan providers look for.

To be sure of what your plan covers, you’ll need to ask your health insurance provider for more information about mental health coverage, what their requirements are, and if you qualify if you work with one of our recommended therapists.

If your health plan provider will cover your therapy sessions with one of our recommended therapists, also ask them what they will need from anxietycentre.com to proceed and for billing.  Once we have this information, we can proceed.

Also note that some health insurance providers only cover a certain number of therapy sessions. You might want to ask how many sessions your plan covers.

If you have any additional or specific questions about therapy and health insurance coverage, you can email us for more information.

The combination of good self-help information and working with an experienced anxiety disorder therapist is the most effective way to address anxiety disorder and its many symptoms. Until the core causes of anxiety are addressed - the underlying factors that motivate apprehensive behavior - a struggle with anxiety disorder can return again and again. Identifying and successfully addressing anxiety's underlying factors is the best way to overcome problematic anxiety.
