Dedicated By MyWellbeing accepts some insurances for NY residents

If you're in-network with Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, or United Healthcare, MyWellbeing can help you find a provider! Dedicated by MyWellbeing is our small team of in-house therapists that accept some insurances and provide best in class care. To view our available providers who are in-network click here!

At this time, our therapy matchmaking is available outside of insurance.

We would love to connect you with the right therapist or coach for you and we believe strongly in the value (both financially and emotionally) of our community’s deep expertise. At this time, our transparent experience is that the systems and reimbursement rates surrounding insurance make finding a therapist in-network very challenging. Learn more about why many therapists do not accept insurance in-network here.
