Counseling options if you have health insurance for mental health services
If you have health insurance and aren’t sure of your benefits or resources, call the health insurance company or explore its online resources. The health insurance provider should be able to tell you what your plan covers when it comes to mental health, and which health care providers participate in your plan. That will be critical for determining what resources below are applicable to you.
(The current pandemic has escalated the needs for mental health resources for families. Some of these resources may be limited during this time, however, many providers are offering telehealth options.)
