Psychiatrists Who Accept Insurance in Riverside County

If you are looking for a psychiatrist in Murrieta, California, Temecula, or elsewhere in Riverside County, it can sometimes be difficult to find a psychiatrist who accepts insurance. Many psychiatrists, therapists, and other mental health providers have elected not to enroll with major health insurance carriers like Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, or TRICARE, making it hard for patients looking for mental health care for depression, anxiety, PTSD, or similar mental health concerns.

Worse, sometimes a provider is in network with your insurance but is not accepting new patients at the moment. Even worse, once you find a mental health doctor who accepts your insurance, the wait times to get a new patient appointment for psychiatry can often be two to three months or longer.

Finding quality mental health care is not always easy. Lack of insurance coverage, long wait times for appointments, or inconvenient office locations or hours can discourage patients from receiving quality mental health care.

Fortunately, patients living in the Inland Empire area of Murrieta, Temecula, Corona, and Riverside County have access to excellent mental health treatment from a psychiatrist who accepts most commercial insurance and TRICARE and TriWest for military and veterans. Inland Empire TMS, located in Murrieta, California, is accepting new patients without a long wait time to be seen. The practice also accepts insurance for mental health services from these major insurance carriers: Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Optum, United Healthcare, Health Net, TRICARE (active duty military and families), and TriWest (military veterans – VA).

How to Use Medical Insurance Benefits for Mental Health

For most major insurance plans, mental health benefits are included as a covered treatment. Your insurance plan will help pay for office visits to see a psychiatrist. The visits will typically fall under the Specialty Provider category for office visits. Antidepressant medications, if prescribed, will be covered under the plan’s prescription drug benefit program.

Most insurance plans also cover newer treatments for depression, such as TMS, as long as the patient meets eligibility requirements. Inland Empire TMS accepts insurance for TMS treatment, and works on your behalf to obtain eligibility and authorization from your insurance carrier, making it easy for you to start treatment without hassle.
