This table is a list of the Blue Cross Blue Shield plans that are believed to recognize LMFTs as eligible providers of behavioral health services. All of these separate Blue plans are affiliated with the national Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association. In addition to the listed plans, some other state BCBS plans might also recognize LMFTs. Some listed BCBS plans might refuse to recognize a particular LMFT because their provider networks are full or the provider does not otherwise meet the general requirements of the plan.The Blue plans are listed by the state where each plan has a majority of their business. Some of the BCBS plan titles listed are not the complete names of these plans.This informationwas developed by the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT).
