BetterHelp is an online therapy platform that provides mental health services through licensed therapists. The platform aims to provide easy access to affordable and convenient therapy for anyone who needs it.

How It Works

BetterHelp connects users with licensed therapists who specialize in a variety of mental health issues. After signing up, users fill out a questionnaire that helps match them with a therapist who meets their specific needs. Users can then communicate with their therapist through messaging, live chat, phone or video sessions.


BetterHelp offers affordable pricing options that are often comparable to the co-pays of most insurance plans. The cost varies depending on the plan you choose, but all plans include unlimited messaging and weekly live sessions with your therapist.

Insurance Coverage

Services offered on BetterHelp are generally not covered by health insurance, Medicare or Medicaid. However, some insurance companies may offer partial or limited coverage for traditional therapy and therapy services.

Confidentiality and Privacy

All therapists on BetterHelp are licensed professionals who are subject to mandated reporting and confidentiality requirements of their governing board and respective state laws, similar to in-office therapy. The information shared between users and therapists is secured by banking-grade 256-bit encryption and distributed across multiple Tier 4- AWS Data Centers for optimal security and protection. BetterHelp also follows modern best practices for browsing encryption system (SSL) and encrypts its databases so they become useless if stolen or compromised.

Effectiveness of Online Therapy

Studies have shown that online therapy can be just as effective as traditional in-person therapy. For example, a study published by JMIR Publications found that “users of BetterHelp experienced significantly reduced depression symptom severity after engaging with the platform.” You can read the full study here.
