FAQs

What is UpLift?

We’re rethinking mental health to work for everyone. We believe it should be easy for everyone to access care and experience real growth.

UpLift makes it simple for people to pay for therapy and psychiatry sessions using insurance or with cash at an affordable rate.

I’m new to therapy, how do I get started?

It only takes 5 minutes! Answer a few questions and then we will show you a list of recommended providers based on your goals, schedule, and insurance. You can do it all online yourself or call 888-380-2028, and we'll guide you through the process.

Is online therapy effective?

Studies show that virtual therapy is just as effective as in-person therapy. Research on outpatient care shows little difference in results, even if experiences are different.

We believe that virtual care has an important role in making therapy more accessible. It can solve problems such as distance, cost, or finding in-network providers who get you. The American Psychological Association has resources if you want to learn more about the effects of virtual care.

Does UpLift offer psychiatric services?

Yes. Our psychiatric providers offer consultations and if needed, prescriptions and medication management.

How much will I pay out of pocket?

UpLift estimates the cost based on your individual health plan and benefits. You will get a summary of your out-of-pocket costs before your session.

Is this a subscription?

No, there are no monthly fees to use UpLift. You can meet with your therapist as often as you need, and you'll only be charged after each session occurs.

What if my therapist isn’t a good fit?

If for any reason you and your therapist don't connect, you can rematch with another therapist—no questions asked. The therapeutic relationship is core to the process so it’s important to find a good fit.

What insurance plans does UpLift accept?

We partner with these plans:

  • Aetna
  • AmeriHealth Caritas DC
  • Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • CareFirst Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Cigna
  • Florida Blue
  • GEHA
  • Kaiser Health Plan of the Mid-Atlantic States
  • Optum

Do you accept Medicare?
