Therapists accepting UnitedHealthCare (UHC) in District Of Columbia specializing in Depression

Seeing a Therapist Who Accepts United Healthcare (UHC)

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. 

Therapy for Depression

Depression often causes people to feel sad, empty, or hopeless, and can cause a lack of interest in life. It can also affect a person's thinking patterns and physical health. Working with a therapist who specializes in depression may reduce symptom frequency and severity and lead to a better quality life.
