Can I select or change which provider I want to see?

Brightside’s provider network includes psychiatrists, physicians, psychiatric nurse practitioners, and therapists who are graduates of prominent US medical schools and/or graduate/post-graduate programs, have several years of experience, and have a current license to practice in your state. All Brightside providers adhere to the highest clinical standards, have several years of experience, and are licensed to practice in the member’s state of residence (see “Who are the providers?” above). Members are matched with providers based on criteria including state licensure and schedule availability.

If you would like to change your provider, please log into your Brightside account, and navigate to Help to contact our Member Services team who will help you find another provider.
