FAQs

Do you offer telehealth sessions?

Yes. All of our therapists offer telehealth sessions. It is important to check with your insurance provider to determine coverage. While many insurances are providing coverage for telehealth services through a certain date during the pandemic, it is important to know how long this will continue and if your policy covers this for your specific provider after the exceptions are lifted.

Do I need a referral to be seen?

No, you do not need a referral to receive services at LifeWorks. While it is common for us to receive referrals from doctor’s offices, schools, attorneys, community providers, etc., it is not necessary.

What types of insurances does LifeWorks accept?

LifeWorks accepts most private insurances, as long as there is mental health coverage on the policy.
