Over the last decade or so, there has been a cultural shift in mental health. People have come to realize that positive mental health is just as important as good physical health. It’s become increasingly clear that the two aspects of health, mental and physical, contribute to our overall wellbeing. Thus, it’s vital that individuals discover how to best nurture and improve their mental health. For those struggling with a mental health concern like depression or anxiety, there is treatment available. However, some people may hesitate to look for support because they mistakenly believe their insurance doesn’t cover therapy.
At A Fresh Start Therapy, we now accept Carefirst BlueCross BlueShield, and our admissions team is eager to answer questions and provide guidance to verify insurance. We believe in getting our clients the care they need to become and remain healthy.
Legislation Makes Affording Therapy Simpler
Affording mental health care is easier than ever before, thanks to the Affordable Care Act or ACA. This legislation made coverage for mental health mandatory. Thus insurance companies must offer health insurance plans that incorporate it.
However, coverage still depends heavily on individual policies. For example, some plans cover the entire cost of mental health care, while others only cover a portion. Furthermore, some plans only pay for certain types of treatment.
We Now Accept Carefirst BlueCross BlueShield
Carefirst BlueCross BlueShield is a popular insurance in the DC Metropolitan area. Carefirst has popular private and commercial plans that we accept. Whether you have a plan from your employer or purchased a plan through the local health insurance network, you should know that we accept most PPO, HMO, and some POS plans.
Some of the specific products that we accept include Federal Employee Program (FEP), BlueChoice, BluePreferred, HealthyBlue, The National Account Service Company (NASCO), and more.
To learn which plan you have, look on the front of your insurance card to see the name of your plan. If you cannot figure it out, flip your card over and contact the number on the back of your insurance card. If you have more questions about the types of insurance we accept, please contact us today at 855-325-3909.
How Does Insurance Verification Work?
To begin the insurance verification process, first, you will contact our office. Our insurance specialist will ask several questions. You may be asked about the extent of your situation or to schedule an in-person evaluation so we know exactly what your needs are. Next, the coordinator will take down your insurance information. Finally, the coordinator will verify your insurance. Once the insurance verification is completed, the coordinator will work with you to schedule an appointment.
Once the insurance verification is completed, the coordinator will contact you about setting up a time to come in. You can begin preparing for the most important change in your life to occur. You will start down the path to a new beginning with a bright future ahead of you.
