Rates & Insurance

Breakthrough has not yet partnered with all insurance companies, but you or the therapist you select may contact your insurer about covering your online care. We strive to accept all insurers but we can not guarantee coverage.

If you receive care on Breakthrough but your insurer declines coverage, you will be billed at the therapist's self-pay rate.

If you can not find a therapist who accepts your insurance, call us at 1-888-282-2522 and we will try to find a therapist who can see you.
