BCBS Makes Counseling Affordable
Often times the most popular advice you will receive when you are experience distress is to “get counseling”. Being the practical minded individual that you are, this may not as simple or easy as it may sound, especially if you have a limited income. It may not be unreasonable to prioritize other necessities or expenses before seeking counseling.
While it may seem more cost effective to avoid therapy, it could mean more expenses in the long run. Any distress that you may be experiencing could become better or could become worse if left untreated. However, problems not properly addressed may become more severe in the future. Without properly addressing concerns, your marital discord could lead to an expensive divorce; your anger could lead to violence; and/or parental stress could even create a gap between you and your children.
The desire to take positive action for your problem may involve spending money. However, if you are seriously considering engaging in counseling, there are options to help you afford any professional expenses.
Let your insurance come to your aid
There are options if you are a Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) health insurance plan beneficiary. Not all insurance plans offer GOOD health benefits for emotional, psychological and/or behavioral conditions. With BCBS, it can be easy for you to receive the counseling service you deserve.
BCBS has an expansive network of licensed counselors, therapists and psychologists. This affords you the option to choose a professional with whom you feel comfortable working with. Unlike other insurance agencies that may have restrictive policies, BCBS allows you to select a behavioral health provider without requiring you to get a doctor’s referral before your first session.
Find a Credible Therapist
Finding the right therapist that fits to your counseling could take time. In order for counseling to be effective, you may need to establish a relationship based on trust, respect and confidentiality. For that to occur, you may need to find a therapist you can trust, that you feel understands you, and with whom you feel comfortable with. You may benefit from a profession who can provide expert guidance while accompanying you on your way to recovery. Apart from these qualifications, you may also want to find a therapist who accepts the insurance you have.
