Seeing a Therapist Who Accepts Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield

Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield therapists, psychologists, and counselors are available for in-person appointments and video therapy sessions. 

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

Depending on your Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield 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 Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield health insurance plan, give them a call at (800) 241-5704 or visit the Highmark BCBS website to review your behavioral health benefits online.
