OPTUM Health Insurance for Counseling


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

Using Optum Health Insurance with our Grand Rapids counselors is easy. Simply bring in your Optum 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 Optum Health Insurance.

Depending on your insurance plan, you may owe a copay, co-insurance, 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, Optum 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 Optum Health Insurance and ask them what they cover in terms of “Outpatient Counseling.”

Please note that Optum Health Insurance is actually a separate healthcare plan that is affiliated with UMR and United Healthcare Insurance, but is not the same as Optum Health Insurance. Be sure to call your United Healthcare Insurance representative to ask questions about using your insurance for counseling. If your Optum Health Insurance representative has questions, please have them reference your therapist’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.
