I am a fully participating provider with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, and I accept any Blue Shield plan nationwide.
I also accept all standard Medicare B plans . Most patients have a supplementary plan to cover the modest co-pay not covered by Medicare, but even without that coverage, outpatient psychotherapy under Medicare is quite affordable.
I am also able to submit charges for psychotherapy to other insurance plans that pay out-of-network providers. If you have a PPO plan, I'd be happy to find out how much they cover and how much you would be responsible for.
Some patients choose to pay for psychotherapy out of pocket, leaving insurance out of the equation altogether.
