Insurance / Employee Benefit Assistance Programs
Hey San Antonio! Please confirm with your own plan that your specific therapist is an in-network provider before coming in for an appointment. Not all therapists accept all plans. Review your annual deductible amounts owed for services.
Northeast Counseling Center currently accepts Lyra employee assistance programs (EAP) and private-pay clients. Please get EAP approval and authorization codes prior to calling and scheduling. Northeast Counseling Center insurance options we are currently in network with include Aetna, Blue Cross / Blue Shield of Texas and Anthem plans, Gilsbar, United Healthcare, Optum and UMR, Traditional Medicare and AARP UHC Medicare plans, Humana, Superior, and Traditional Medicaid. WE DO NOT ACCEPT BCBS/MAGELLAN PLANS. Effective 11/30/23, we are Out of Network with Tricare. Please review your policies as HMO's may require referrals prior to services starting.
Some patients choose to pay out of pocket for therapy. This may be due to a lack of insurance coverage, or because they simply prefer a certain therapist, or due to that therapist not paneled by their insurance. Some patients also prefer to not utilize their insurance benefits as they want to be more discreet and it is their choice to private pay due to that reason.
