Does Cigna cover psychiatry?
Cigna mental health coverage generally includes psychiatric care from a qualified mental health professional. However, you should check your specific plan details to determine what type of psychiatric coverage you have before seeking treatment. Cigna covers online appointments with Talkspace psychiatrists for evaluation, prescriptions, and medication management, but prescribed medications need to be filled at your local pharmacy.
Does Cigna require a referral to a psychiatrist?
Some plans may require a referral from a primary care physician, while others may not. Check with Cigna directly or review your insurance plan to determine if a referral is required to see a psychiatrist.
Does Cigna cover prescribed medication?
Cigna also covers medication from a licensed psychiatric provider or doctor. Check your plan details before seeking any treatment to be sure you understand your coverage. While you can get a prescription for medication with Talkspace, you will need to go to your pharmacy to have the prescription filled, and you’ll pay for the medication at the pharmacy.
What types of therapy are covered by Cigna?
Cigna has numerous choices regarding the types of therapy you can receive under your plan.
- Psychotherapy: A general type of therapy that includes a variety of techniques designed to address unwanted thoughts, behaviors, and emotions.
