  • What is the refund policy?

    Talkspace is committed to offering everyone the best possible experience with our platform and therapists. If you’re ever not satisfied, you can request a new therapist through your account settings.

    Talkspace acts as a conduit to arrange professional services, and those services are paid to the therapists through their Therapist Agreement with Talkspace. Generally refunds for unused time are not granted because the therapists charge for time that is scheduled to be used, much like other medical professionals. However, customer service reviews refunds on a case-by-case basis in conjunction with the therapists. We make accommodations if unique or legal circumstances (medical, death, disability, court orders, etc.) dictate the reason for the refund request. If a refund is not granted, usually we are able to make accommodations some other way such as a credit for future service.

    If there is something you believe we could do differently to improve your Talkspace experience, please let us know by contacting us at support@talkspace.com.

  • Do you accept Medicare or Medicaid?

    Unfortunately, Talkspace is currently not available through Medicare or Medicaid.

    However, we do partner with a number of health plans to provide Talkspace to employees, either through employee assistance programs (EAPs) or behavioral health benefits. Contact your benefits department or call Member Services on the back of your insurance card to see if you qualify.

  • Is Talkspace covered by insurance?

    Talkspace now partners with a number of U.S. health plans to provide online therapy to employees through employee assistance programs (EAP) and behavioral health benefits. For more information regarding eligibility please contact your insurance provider, or check our list of partners here.

     If Talkspace is not covered by your insurance, it may be helpful to know that some Talkspace customers use a credit card for their subscription and then submit the bill to their Flexible Spending Account (FSA). We recommend you check in with your FSA provider to confirm what information they may need to accept the bill.

    Please email our customer support team if you'd like an itemized receipt.
