Major Michigan insurance plans are waiving copays and deductibles for online counseling in these uncertain and unprecedented times.
People are needing support now more than ever. Understandably, the impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is leaving many feeling anxious, depressed, and isolated. With strict stay-at-home orders in place, businesses are shutting down leaving many people out of work, losing income, and stuck at home.

- Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (through June 30, 2020)
- Blue Care Network (through June 30, 2020)
- HAP (through June 30, 2020)
