FAQs about how to find a LifeStance supported psychiatrist in California

Yes, most California health insurance carriers provide mental health benefits that cover psychiatrist visits, including the initial evaluation and regular sessions (check-ins). However, the exact amount of coverage will vary based on the insurance plan details and whether the selected provider is in-network or out-of-network with your insurance. Just like any other medical professional, if the psychiatrist is in-network with your insurance, you’ll pay only a copay at each session after meeting your annual deductible. If the psychiatrist is out-of-network with your insurance, you may still be able to receive reimbursement after paying the fee.

We work with: Provider Network of America (PNOA), Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), Aetna, ComPsych, Evernorth (Cigna), MultiPlan (PHCS), MediNcrease Health Plans (MHP), Partners Direct Health, Sana Benefits, Magellan, Humana, Tricare East (Humana Military), Carelon (Beacon), CenCal, Blue Shield of California, Elevance Health (Anthem BC), Managed Health Network (HealthNet), Santa Barbara Select IPA (SBSIPA), Scripps Health Plan, Lakeside Medical (Regal Medical), Sharp Health Plan, Alignment Healthcare, Optum (UnitedHealthcare) and Baylor Scott & White Health Plan.

If you have a PPO or POS insurance plan (or so called “open access” plans), you can likely receive some reimbursement when you see a psychiatrist out-of-network in California.

If you have an HMO, EPO, or Medicaid/Medicare plan, you likely cannot receive reimbursement, and would be responsible for the full out-of-network session fee. LifeStance accepts most of the commercial health insurance plans.
