What is group therapy?

Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy that involves one or more therapists working with several people (maximum of 12) at the same time. Group therapy is sometimes used alone, but it is also commonly integrated into a comprehensive treatment plan that also includes individual therapy.

What can I expect?

Each group will have between 4-12 participants who are all interested in learning more about the topic and need support. Each group is facilitated by a licensed therapist who will guide you through the curriculum and facilitate participant sharing and feedback. Group therapy is a great way to feel connected and know you are not alone.

Is group therapy covered by Medicare and other insurance companies?

Yes! Group therapy is a covered benefit. In most cases, it is covered 100 percent or with a very small coinsurance if you have original Medicare and a supplemental. Call our care team at 1-800-567-5433 for more information and to verify your coverage.

Can I get individual therapy and group therapy?

Yes! As a matter of fact, individual and group therapy are a great combination and compliment each other. Many therapists recommend group therapy to their clients for added support.

What if I already have a therapist?

If you are already seeing a Total Life therapist, please talk to them about the groups. They can make a referral and direct you on how to get signed up. You can also call our care coordinator team at 1-800-567-5433
