Note: During the coronavirus-related state of emergency, most insurance plans are covering teletherapy just like in-person therapy. However, since there are a few that may not, CBPS has decided to support our community by guaranteeing that we will not charge our clients more for teletherapy than for in-person therapy, regardless of insurance coverage. We promise.
CBPS accepts most health insurance plans and has licensed clinicians who are in-network with most major health insurers, including:
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
- Johns Hopkins EHP
- US Family Health Plan
- United Healthcare
- TriWest (Veteran’s Choice)
- Maryland Medicaid (regardless of the chosen MCO)
Even if your insurance is not listed here, we may still be in-network, or you may be able to use out-of-network benefits. Please note, however, that we do not accept EAP (Employee Assistance Program) payment or worker’s compensation cases.
A few insurance plans require psychological services to be preauthorized, or require a referral, so clients expecting to use insurance to pay for services should call the insurer prior to the first appointment. During that call, clients should be sure to verify benefits, copayment amounts, our participation in the insurance network, and preauthorization for outpatient mental health services if preauthorization or a referral is required. The number to call is usually listed on the back of the insurance card as the number for behavioral or mental health, “preauthorization,” or “precertification;” otherwise, call the main number on the card. If you need assistance dealing with your insurance company, please call us at 410-604-0226 to speak with Vicky (our office manager) or Jamie (our billing agent). We are happy to help.
