Seeing a Therapist Who Accepts United Healthcare (UHC)

Below you'll find a list of therapists and mental health care providers who offer online and in-person appointments. You can use the filters above to refine your search.

United Healthcare (UHC) therapists, psychologists, and counselors are available for in-person appointments and video therapy sessions. 

Therapy with an in-network United Healthcare counselor may cost no more than your copay, which typically ranges from $0 to $50. Some United Healthcare plans may require you to pay coinsurance instead of a copay, which means you’ll cover a certain percentage of the therapist’s fees out-of-pocket. 

You may have to pay the therapist’s full rate if you haven’t met your annual deductible with United Healthcare, even if the therapist is an in-network provider.

Depending on your United Healthcare insurance plan, there may be restrictions on the types of therapy services covered (e.g. couples counseling, grief counseling, psychological testing). Additionally, some plans may require you to get a referral from your primary care physician.

To check the specific costs and coverage details associated with your Optum health insurance plan, give them a call at (800) 444-6222 or visit the United Healthcare website to review your behavioral health benefits online. 

Narrative Therapy

Narrative therapy is an approach that views people as objective experts on their own experiences, giving them the distance to make meaning out of their life. The therapist leads and empowers them to adjust and balance thought patterns and behaviors. You’ll find mental health professionals who specialize in narrative therapy listed below.
