To find a psychiatrist that accepts MassHealth insurance, contact the Office for MassHealth at 800-841-2900 for assistance, states The Executive Office of Health and Human Services. MassHealth members enrolled in a managed care plan can also visit the official website for their plans to find a psychiatrist. The Office of MassHealth lists contact information for the various managed care plans on its website.
One example of a MassHealth managed care plan that provides online listings of physicians is the Boston Medical Center HealthNet Plan. To find a provider who accepts MassHealth through this plan, go to bmchp.org, click on Members, choose Find a Provider, and then click on Behavioral Health Doctor. Follow the prompts to search for a psychiatrist. Members can also contact 888-566-0010 for help, notes Boston Medical Center HealthNet Plan.
Another way to search for MassHealth psychiatrists is through the ZocDoc website. To perform a search, choose Psychiatrist as the specialty and MassHealth as the participating insurance. Enter the desired location and click Find a Doctor. Patients can also search using the ZocDoc mobile application for iPhone and Android. It features patient reviews, a map of doctors who accept MassHealth and an appointment calendar, states ZocDoc. Patients can also book an appointment online though the app once they choose their physician.
