Insurance Participation

Insurance Participation

Indigo mental health is currently in the process of selecting and joining a number of insurance panels to be able to better serve our clients needs.  The following information on specific insurance companies, and affiliated provider networks is intended to indicate our current participation, however even after we conform benefits we can not guarantee that they will pay for your care.

The complexity of insurance companies and their interaction with employers, benefit management companies, health care providers and clients is often difficult to understand.  A your insurance card may appear to state that we are covered, and in some cases our clients have even found us in their insurance company provider search. However your employer or a benefit management company may have carved mental health benefits out and assigned them to another insurance network that we are not actually paneled with

The following sections include the companies Indigo Mental Health is currently paneled with, the provider networks that we participate in, and the companies we are currently in the process of negotiation with.
