Beacon Health Insurance for Counseling

Good news! Most therapists at Health for Life Counseling Grand Rapids and the Trauma-Informed Counseling Center of Grand Rapids are in-network with Beacon Health Insurance.

Using Beacon Health Insurance with our Grand Rapids counselors is easy. Simply bring in your Beacon Health Insurance card and complete the “new client” insurance form with your therapist. Once you do that, your counselor will make sure to use our secure service to submit your sessions to Beacon Health Insurance.

Depending on your insurance plan, you may owe a copay or a deductible fee at the time of your counseling session—this will be collected by your therapist at the end of session. You may use your HSA card at this time if you have one. Other times, Beacon Health Insurance may pay for your counseling session completely depending on your insurance plan and you may owe nothing for the service. To understand more about your insurance plan, please contact Beacon Health Insurance and ask them what they cover in terms of “Outpatient Counseling.”

Please note that Beacon Health Insurance is actually a separate healthcare plan that is affiliated with Blue Cross Blue Shield, but is not the same as Blue Cross Blue Shield. Oftentimes, Blue Cross Blue Shield members will find that their physical healthcare doctors are covered under Blue Cross Blue Shield, but that their mental health care is covered under Beacon Health Insurance. Be sure to call your Beacon Health Insurance representative to ask questions about using your insurance for counseling. If your Beacon Health Insurance insurance representative has questions, please  have them reference your therapist’s name (or their Supervisor’s Name), and let them know that the official group name is “Intentional Counseling Grand Rapids LLC.” 

We look forward to serving you by providing excellent therapy services at this time, while accommodating your insurance plan.
