Due to the rapid spread of COVID-19, a lot has changed in the last couple of weeks. We’ve all had to adapt to new routines, of which involves social distancing and staying at home unless we absolutely must go out. COVID-19 has led to other changes too, including your insurance coverage.

We’ve talked with major insurance companies across the country to find out how they are updating their policies to cover online counseling by phone (and video). We’re happy to report that many insurance providers now cover telephone counseling as well as video counseling. Also, many of these companies are also waiving the copays for online counseling!

We’ve gathered all of this important information and put it in one simple chart, so that you can easily find out if your insurance covers telephone counseling, video counseling, or both. You can also see whether your insurance is waiving copays right now. Just find your provider on the chart below:
