Deciding to see a therapist may have been difficult, but finding one who accepts your insurance may be even more challenging. And while you’re trying to cope with your own mental and emotional issues, dealing with insurance issues may be the last thing you want to do.

At Mental Health Match, we specialize in matching people to therapists near you who accept or are in-network with Optum.

Whether you are located in downtown Washington DC, Anacostia, Ballston, Bluemont, or even Brentwood, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Does Your Insurance Cover Therapy?

Before you start therapy, the first thing you should do is verify your outpatient Optum therapy coverage. If your plan doesn’t cover behavioral health therapy, they won’t pay; it may surprise you how many plans don’t include therapist insurance coverage.

To determine what your plan covers, you can call the customer service number on your insurance card. Once you know for sure that your insurance will cover outpatient behavioral health, leave it to us to help you find a therapist who accepts Optum plans.

If you would like to learn more about how to use insurance to cover therapy, check out our FAQ about how to pay for therapy.
