For 2024, I will be “in network” and able to accept most plans from the following companies:

  • Blue Benefit (utilizes Blue Cross Blue Shield network)
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Optum (includes United Healthcare, UBH, and MGB formerly Allways)
  • Point32 Health (new parent company of Harvard Pilgrim and Tufts)
  • Health Plans, Inc (utilizes Harvard Pilgrim/Point32 network)

I am in network for only some of the “limited network” Health Connector plans for above mentioned companies which are self-purchased. It is best for you to contact your insurance ahead of time for confirmation.

I am not in network for any MassHealth Plans, either as a primary or secondary insurance.

Please note that sometimes your medical coverage and mental health coverage are covered by different insurance companies.  You will need to know which insurance company covers your mental health services.

To verify that I am “in network” and that your visits will be covered by insurance, you may call the customer service number on your insurance card and give them the information below.  I will be listed under either:

My Type 1 NPI # 1245545078 (Katherine Schwab LMHC).

My Type 2 NPI # 1497253843 (Katherine Schwab LMHC, PLLC)

For families who have “out of network” benefits with a different insurance company (such as Aetna, Cigna, Unicare, etc.) you will pay the self-pay rates upfront, and each month you will automatically receive a superbill which you submit to your insurance for partial reimbursement according to your insurance plan benefits for “out of network” coverage. Please note that not all insurance plans have “out of network” benefits.

I also accept self-pay and am happy to provide an end-of-year statement for tax deduction purposes.
