Now Accepting CenCal Insurance

My project (1)

Applying for Psychotherapy using CenCal Insurance

At the Santa Barbara Therapy Collective we believe that everyone should have access to quality mental health care. That’s why we are committed to accepting CenCal insurance plans to help make our services more affordable and accessible to those who need it.


CenCal is a non-profit insurance company contracted with the State of California to administer Medi-Cal benefits in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties.

Depending on your insurance plan, your benefits may include coverage for psychotherapy services. This coverage can vary, but may include: individual therapy, couple’s therapy, family therapy, EMDR, and more.

To make the insurance process as seamless as possible, we will work with your insurance provider to help verify your benefits and determine your coverage for psychotherapy services. We will also handle all billing and claims on your behalf, so you can focus on your mental health.

Before your first appointment, please provide us with your insurance information, including your insurance card and any necessary authorizations or referrals. We will then work with your insurance provider to determine your coverage and co-payment requirements, if any.

At the Santa Barbara Therapy Collective, we are committed to helping you receive quality mental health care. If you have any questions about our insurance policies or need help navigating the insurance process, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are here to support you every step of the way.
