Meridian Health Insurance for Counseling

Good news! All of the therapists at Health for Life Grand Rapids and the Trauma-Informed Counseling Center of Grand Rapids are in-network with Meridian Health Insurance. Using Meridian Health Insurance with our Grand Rapids counselors is easy. Simply bring in your Meridian Health Insurance (of Michigan) 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 Meridian Health Insurance (of Michigan). 

Because Medicaid is a part of the State of Michigan’s MI-Bridges Healthcare Network, your counseling and therapy is completely free. Whether you use your Meridian Health Insurance (of Michigan) to see a counselor or therapist in West Michigan or if you connect from a different area in Michigan via telehealth and online counseling services, you will never owe a copay or deductible. Your counseling and therapy is completely free as long as you continue to qualify for Meridian Health Insurance. To understand more about your insurance plan, please contact Meridian Health Insurance and ask them what they cover in terms of “Outpatient Counseling.”

In some cases, Meridian Health Insurance (of Michigan) is also known as McLaren, Medicaid, Molina or MI-Bridges Insurance in West Michigan. Be sure to call your Meridian Health Insurance representative to ask questions about using your insurance for counseling. If your Meridian Health Insurance representative has questions, please have them reference your therapist’s name or 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.
