Therapists accepting Aetna in Illinois specializing in Eclectic Therapy

Seeing a Therapist Who Accepts Aetna Insurance

Aetna therapists, psychologists, and counselors are available for in-person appointments and video therapy sessions. 

Therapy with an in-network Aetna counselor may cost no more than your copay, which typically ranges from $0 to $50. Some Aetna 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 Aetna, even if the therapist is an in-network provider with Aetna. 

Depending on your Aetna 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 Aetna health insurance plan, give them a call at 1-800-445-5299 or visit Aetna’s website to review your behavioral health benefits online.
