Benefit Plans &
Authorized Provider Organizations
Extended Health Benefits
Extended Health Benefit Plans, such as Pacific Blue Cross or other health insurance plans, often provide annual benefits to see a psychologist. Check with your employer or insurance provider for the amount of coverage, since this can vary from 80% to 100% coverage and amounts typically ranging between $500 and $2000 per year. If you are cross-covered with your spouse, you can usually use the psychology benefit from both plans for each family member.
