What insurance do we accept?

At this time, we accept the below as in-network insurance carriers in select states only: 

  • Cigna
  • Aetna 
  • Optum/United Healthcare (in AZ, CA, CO, CT, FL, IL, LA, MA, MD, NM, NV, OR, SC, TX, and VA with national rollout coming soon)
  • Anthem CA
  • Allegiance

We’ve ensured our care is affordable even without insurance, and paying for Brightside services directly with your credit card is always an option. We also accept HSA/FSA payments if you have one of those accounts.
