Blue Cross Blue Shield Beneficiaries of Fuquay-Varina, NC

do not need a DR Referral to Get Counseling


To experience emotional or behavioral issues can be an extremely difficult – not only for the person experiencing them, but also for those who live with them, love them and work with them. A wide range of causes like death in the family, birth of a sibling, marital conflict, and others can prompt you or your loved one to exhibit periodical emotional/behavioral changes. This may include depression, anger, oppositional defiance, low self-esteem, and self-harm. The severity of the symptoms necessitates immediate treatment and care. When left untreated, these symptoms can have short and long-term negative effects on your personal and professional life.


Behavioral Health does not require a DR Referral

Chances for emotional and behavioral problems to improve may prove to be impossible if you or someone you know does not get access to treatment. The earlier the intervention is given, the easier it becomes to restore normalcy in your life. In this case, help can be provided by health professionals such as licensed counselors, therapists, and clinical psychologists.

Often, it can be difficult for you to understand your insurance policy and how it relates to counseling (behavioral healthcare). Because of insurance provider rules, most specialty care health providers require a doctor’s referral before providing treatment. Fortunately, Behavioral Healthcare is not one of those for beneficiaries of Blue Cross Blue Shield.


Using Blue Cross Blue Shield to Your Advantage

When you know you’ll be subjected to the complex procedures of treatment, you don’t want to have one more thing bothering you, or keeping you from getting the help you need. You don’t have to have this additional burden if you’re a holder of Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) health insurance plan. It is important with BCBS that you have access to counseling services from a health professional whom you trust enough to work with.

This privilege makes it possible for you or your loved one to receive needed treatment quickly and to have peace of mind when making an important decision involving the treatment and care you need.
