Your Guide to Navigating the Friday Mental Health Network


At Friday Health Plans, we pride ourselves on covering your basic healthcare benefits better than most. We’re talking about benefits like: your free annual wellness exam, three free doctor visits, and free generic drugs.

But we also have you covered for the full-spectrum of your healthcare needs. And when it comes to mental health — an essential healthcare priority that’s just as crucial as your physical health — we have a fantastic network of doctors and licensed professionals who are here for you to talk to.

Below we’ve included a quick guide to help you navigate Friday’s mental health network. If you have any questions or need help, please give our friendly customer service team a call. We’re here to help!

Find a mental health professional near you

Using our provider search, you can find psychiatrists, counselors, and psychologists in the mental health space. While it’s best to work with your primary care doctor to coordinate an appointment, you do not need a referral to set up a mental health visit.

Your mental health prescription coverage

Put that wallet away. As a Friday member, you have access to a wide-range of $0 generic prescription drugs to treat and help manage your symptoms*. Check out our drug list to see if your drugs are covered.

*Not covered on Catastrophic or HSA Plans.

The cost of a mental health visit

While you do not need a referral, your mental health visit is considered a specialist visit. For many Friday plans, this means the cost of your visit will go toward your deductible. But be sure to review your plan details on your member portal before your visit.

Speak to a mental health professional online or by phone 

With Start Talking, you can speak with a mental health specialist through the camera of your smartphone, tablet, or computer. And you can have your appointment in the comfort and convenience of your own home, car, or office. Secure, discreet, and affordable, Start Talking has a great group of qualified therapists to choose from and is available with every Friday health plan.

Start Talking is an in-network provider that is covered by your health plan as a mental health visit. 

As always, please give our customer service team a call with any questions about your plan: 800-475-8466 or questions@fridayhealthplans.com
