You will need to check with your insurance company to make sure I am on your insurance panel.   You need to look carefully at your insurance card to determine who is the behavioral health administrator for your insurance plan.  For example, you may have BC/BS for your medical benefit, but your behavioral health benefit may be administered by Magellan or another Mental Health Managed Care Organization (MCO).


These are insurance companies I am often able to accept:


Blue Cross Blue Shield  (Most Plans except BlueValue and BlueLocal)

Anthem BC/BS

State Health Plans

BC/BS Blue Advantage (a Medicare Part C program)

BC/BS NC State Employees 

BC/BS of (Most States) - please call if not NC so we can explain our experience with the various state plans, some require pre-auth for Bariatric Evaluaitons and some like MN do not cover the Bariatric Psychological


Cardinal / PBH Medicaid (Mecklenburg and Cabarrus, Davidson, Rowan, Stanly, & Union)

Carolina Behavioral Health Alliance 

Humana - Lifesynch



Medicaid (Cardinal Innovations - Piedmont and Mecklenburg)


United Healthcare

BC/BS Blue Advantage

(Medicare Advantage programs may require special pre-authorization)

NC Healthchoice


Tricare (Outpatient Program)

Value Options

United Behavioral Health

United Healthcare 

And possibly others, please check with your benefit administrator (located on your card.)


Insurance I am not able to accept

BC/BS Blue Value or BC/BS Blue Local - These plans have an economical rate based on a limited provider panel.  You should contact NC - BCBS at the number on your card to inquire about IN-network providers.  (I do not accept out of network benefits from these plans due to the high out of network deductable of the plans, which cause you to have a very high cost for services if provided here. Most of these plans are aligned with Novant Health or Carolina Healthcare System, so your best bet in finding an in-network provider may be a mental health provider in a Novant owned or operated clinic.  I do not have information who these may be.)

Aetna - Leap Everyday  This plan is requires you use a Carolina Healthcare Provider practice.

HealthGram (Primary Physician Care)

Medicaid (Partners LME - Burke, Catawba, Cleveland, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln, Surry and Yadkin counties)

Medicaid from any LME (excpet Cardinal Innovations see above)
