No Need for a Dr Referral for BCBS Beneficiaries Seeking Counseling


When it comes to your general well-being, your behavioral and emotional health are equally important to your physical health. While disorders such as anxiety, depression, and other related health conditions are very treatable, you may still hesitate to seek treatment after identifying the 4 things keeping you from getting the help you need. This involves cost, and it may include the lack of or an insufficient insurance coverage.

The struggles of depression and anxiety, or any behavioral/emotional health issue, can be doubly difficult if you find that your insurance does not have enough coverage for your condition. You may find that you need to get a more expensive insurance plan to be covered for the counseling service you need. Assuming your insurance will pay for the needed service, you still must find out if your therapist is accredited by your plan. Lastly, you may be deterred by the need to get a Doctor’s Referral before you can avail of counseling services.


Feeling Better About the Process

 When experiencing the symptoms of any emotional or behavioral health condition, you can be faced with certain challenges related to your finances. The cost of getting treatment is a common obstacle. If you are deciding to seek counseling, insurance can help. There are two options to consider for you to feel better about the process.


  • Be a Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) member. When issues of any emotional and behavioral health condition impair you or a loved one, it is important to have access to services that can help you resolve the difficulties. Not all insurance plans cover these health concerns. With BCBS, you are not alone. It includes counseling in its package of health services.


  • Find a Professional in the BCBS Health Plan Network. Your emotional wellness matter to you, that is why it makes sense to find the right therapist you can trust and rely on to provide quality health care for your specific health condition. The Preferred Provider Program (PPO) of BCBS allows you access to its extensive network of over 600,000 doctors, including licensed counselors, therapists and psychologists, and 6,000-member hospitals across the country. You can be sure to find the right fit professional who can respond to your needs.

As BCBS member, there is no need for you to get a DR referral when you decide to seek counseling. The provider of your choice will assume the task of completing your health form and other documents. If you prefer to seek treatment from a non-BCBS health provider, you may need to contact the concerned personnel to know the extent of your coverage.
