Insurance Plans

Dr. Schild accepts the following insurance plans:

  1. Aetna 
  2. Cigna 
  3. GEHA
  4. Humana
  5. Meritain
  6. Nippon Life Benefits

Dr. Schild no longer accepts new clients with Anthem, MedicareMHN, or Tricare insurance or any EAP plans. If you are looking for a therapist who accepts these insurance plans, please contact your insurance or visit a website, such as PsychologyToday, to search for an available provider.


If  you would like to use your insurance benefits to pay for your therapy sessions, please contact your health insurance company prior to scheduling your first appointment to verify your coverage. In most cases, your insurance contact information can be found on your insurance card. When you call, please ask about:

  1. Which insurance company actually covers your behavioral health benefits. In some cases, your mental health benefits are managed by another insurance company than is listed on your insurance card. 
  2. Your deductible, which is the amount you have to pay before your insurance plan starts to pay anything.
  3. Your copay per visit, which is the amount that is not covered by your insurance & that you are required to pay for each appointment.
  4. If pre-authorization is required (if so, please write down the authorization number provided by your insurance carrier)
  5. The number of sessions that are approved.
  6. If you are interested in online therapy, please ensure that your insurance company covers telehealth sessions.

Medi-Cal Information

  • Please note that Dr. Schild does not participate in any Medi-Cal plans, even if they are managed by another insurance provider, such as Aetna.

Even if Dr. Schild does not accept direct payment from your insurance, most insurance companies will pay for so called "out of network" providers. To find out if you have this benefit, please call your insurance company and ask them if they have an out-of-network provision.  Make sure to also ask about your deductible and your copayment. 

Some insurance companies will also reimburse some of your out-of pocket expenses even if Dr. Schild is not one of their providers or your insurance does not have an "out of network" provision. In those cases, Dr. Schild will provide you with a billing statement which you may submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Again, please call your insurance company prior to your appointment to find out about your mental health benefits.
