FAQs about how to find a LifeStance psychiatrist in Santa Maria, 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: Humana, Aetna, Evernorth (Cigna), MediNcrease Health Plans (MHP), MultiPlan (PHCS), Optum (UnitedHealthcare), Partners Direct Health, Provider Network of America (PNOA), Sana Benefits, Tricare East (Humana Military), Elevance Health (Anthem BCBS), Managed Health Network (HealthNet), Magellan, Lakeside Medical (Regal Medical), ComPsych, Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), Carelon (Beacon), Santa Barbara Select IPA (SBSIPA), Medicare, Scripps Health Plan, Elevance Health (Anthem BC), Sharp Health Plan and Blue Shield of California.

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.
