How to find a Cigna Behavioral Health therapist in NYC

How much does Cigna Behavioral Health cover for therapy?

Cigna Behavioral Health 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 Cigna 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 Cigna Behavioral Health therapists located in NYC?

Most NYC therapists who are in-network with Cigna Behavioral Health see clients in Manhattan. The majority practice in Midtown, but there are a number on the Upper West Side as well as in Lower Manhattan.

There are also therapists paneled with Cigna in Brooklyn and Queens.

Can I see a therapist who is not in-network with Cigna Behavioral Health?

If you see an in-network therapist, insurance should cover the bulk of your fees. In NYC, there are more in-network providers with Cigna Behavioral Health than many other health insurance plans.

That said, you can also see a therapist who isn’t paneled with Cigna. Just remember that your out-of-pocket costs will be higher as you’ll only receive partial reimbursement for your therapy. You will also be responsible for managing the out-of-network benefits.

For details about your out-of-network coverage, call member services or 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 Cigna starts contributing. Coinsurance is the amount that they will reimburse you.

Does Cigna Behavioral Health cover couples counseling in NYC?

It’s unlikely that Cigna Behavioral Health will cover couples therapy sessions, but you can contact your plan and ask what coverage options are available to you if you are seeking couples therapy.

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 Cigna Behavioral Health cover remote counseling in NYC?

Yes – given the fast pace of city life, remote (or online) counseling has become increasingly popular with New Yorkers. Many  Cigna Behavioral Health plans will cover it. 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).
