Insurance information

Insurance information

When it comes to your well-being, your mental health is just as important as your physical health. In 2008, the Paul Wellstone and Pete Domenici Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (also known as the Mental Health Parity Law or Federal Parity Law) requires coverage of services for mental health, behavioral health and substance-use disorders to be comparable to physical health coverage.  The Federal Parity Law requires insurance companies to treat mental and behavioral health and substance use disorder coverage equal to (or better than) medical/surgical coverage. The Law applies to most types of health insurance with the exception to Medicare and some state government plans. If you're unsure if your health insurance covers psychological/counseling/behavioral health services, contact your insurance representative or HR Director for more information.


We are in network with the following healthcare companies: Aetna, Cigna, Geisinger Health Plan, Independence Blue Cross (through Magellan), IBH, Magellan, and Optum. We're always adding more.
