Finding a Therapist Who Accepts MediNcrease Health Plans Insurance

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

Therapy with an in-network MediNcrease Health counselor may cost you nothing or no more than your copay, which typically ranges from $0 to $50. Some MediNcrease Health 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 MediNcrease Health, even if the therapist is an in-network provider.

Depending on your MediNcrease Health 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 MediNcrease Health insurance plan, give them a call at 1-(855) 369-3923 or visit the MediNcrease Health website to review your behavioral health benefits online.
