University-provided health insurance plans include coverage for mental health services. There is no limit to the number of visits individuals can have with their mental health provider, but the individual’s insurance plan selection will determine the amount of cost coverage available. A physician’s referral is not required before a visit to a mental health provider if covered by University-provided health insurance.
