Commonly asked questions about insurance.

Where is insurance coverage available?

To confirm we have coverage in your area, you can check your eligibility through our sign up process, or you can contact us directly at support@brightside.com.

What is covered by my insurance?

When using insurance, you’re only responsible for any copays, coinsurance, deductibles, or prescription costs associated with your plan–your insurance will cover the rest. This includes the clinical features of your Brightside membership including video consultations, unlimited messaging, treatment monitoring, and medication management. The cost of your prescription medication may fall under your pharmacy benefits plan and may require an additional copay.

When you sign up for services, we’ll provide details about any cost-share responsibilities that we’re able to look up on your behalf. We also recommend that you contact your health insurance plan to verify that your care at Brightside will be covered.

How will my insurance be billed?

After your visit, Brightside will submit claims for services rendered to your insurance plan. When your insurance has processed the claim, they will send you an Explanation of Benefits (EOB), telling you what services were billed, what amount was covered by the insurer, and what balance, if any, you owe.

How will I be billed after my insurance processes?

When your insurance has processed the claim and has sent us an Explanation of Benefits (EOB), telling us what services were billed, what amount was covered by the insurer, and what balance you owe. We will then send you an invoice outlining the details of your responsibility. We will then charge the credit card you have on file.

How can I tell if I’m eligible?

If you are a new member signing up for our services, you can enter your insurance information during the sign-up process where we will verify your insurance eligibility and your coverage details.

Do I have to use insurance?

No, you do not have to use insurance. We’ve made sure 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 payment if you have one of those accounts.

How can I find out more about my coverage?

For other questions about your coverage you can contact our customer support team at support@brightside.com. We’re here to help.

If you have questions about coverage details or cost-share responsibilities we recommend reaching out directly to your insurance plan for more information.
