How to find an Aetna therapist in NYC
How much does Aetna cover for therapy?
Aetna covers therapy for a range of mental health and substance abuse concerns by psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers.
Check your plan documents for details regarding the conditions and treatments covered by your Aetna plan. For example, you’ll want to find out what types of treatment are covered (ex. standard, 45-60 min outpatient therapy sessions) and what you can expect to pay out of pocket (per-session copays, any deductibles).
Where are Aetna therapists located in NYC?
Most NYC therapists who are in-network with Aetna see clients in Manhattan. Many practice in Midtown, but there are some on the Upper East and West Sides as well as in the Lower Manhattan neighborhoods of Greenwich Village and SoHo.
There are also therapists paneled with Aetna in Queens.
Can I see a therapist who is not in-network with Aetna?
Yes, you can see a therapist who isn’t paneled with Aetna, but your out-of-pocket costs will be higher as you’ll only receive partial reimbursement. Most Aetna plans have a 20% coinsurance rate, which means you will only be reimbursed for 80% of your therapy.
For details about your out-of-network coverage, call Aetna directly. Contact information for member services should be on the back of your insurance card.
You can also search your plan documents for your summary of benefits. The key terms are “out-of-network deductible” and “coinsurance.” Your deductible is the amount you’ll have to pay before Aetna starts contributing. Coinsurance is the amount that they will reimburse you, typically around 80%.
Does Aetna cover couples counseling in NYC?
Aetna rarely covers couples therapy, but there are some plans that might offer benefits. If you’re not sure whether your plan offers coverage, contact member services.
You can also ask your therapist if they offer a sliding scale, or reduced fee, to clients with limited financial resources and who are not using their insurance for treatment.
Does Aetna cover remote counseling in NYC?
Yes, certain Aetna plans will cover remote (online) sessions with an in-network therapist. To find out if yours does, call member services or refer to your plan documents. Be sure to ask about what types of remote therapy they cover (ex. live video sessions, phone sessions).
