Note for using Health Insurance Coverage
Using your health insurance for Talkspace comes with no sign-up charges. However, be mindful that cost-share like copay, coinsurance, and your deductible may apply after each session. Ask your health plan for details on patient responsibility so you know what to expect!
No-show or late cancellation or late rescheduling fees for Talkspace’s live sessions may also apply.

Tips to determine whether you applied your coverage correctly

To prevent any unexpected charges, follow these guidelines when signing up for Talkspace with coverage:

  • Check for Pricing Display
    Ensure that, during the sign-up process, you're not brought to a screen displaying the pricing of each plan. If you see this screen, your benefits may not apply to Talkspace services. Confirm with your health insurance, sponsor, or EAP representative to ensure you have the necessary coverage. 

    If you see a screen similar to the one below, an account will be created with an out-of-pocket subscription.

    For health plan coverage: If you're brought to the "We couldn’t verify your coverage for Talkspace" screen, and are sure you should be covered, please select the "I'm sure my plan covers Talkspace" option. You'll then provide your ID and insurance details. Our team will review your submission and notify you via email about the next steps. Ensure that emails from Talkspace are not blocked to receive important notifications. Keep in mind that if you're not directed to this screen and instead see one displaying the pricing for Talkspace's out-of-pocket subscriptions, it indicates that you're not currently covered. Please check with your health plan provider to confirm if Talkspace is in-network.


  • Check Your Plan Details
    If you've created an account, your plan details shown in your Talkspace account should indicate the coverage name under which you've signed up. Log in to access the article What is included in my Talkspace plan? and follow the outlined steps to check if you've signed up under the right coverage.
Help someone else to sign up (e.g., child, parent, family member, etc.)
It's essential for the individual receiving services to create their own account for privacy and security purposes. The account should be registered under their first and last name, email address, date of birth, and other personal information.
