Behavioral Health Coaching

Ginger behavioral health coaches offer day-to-day support for life’s challenges. Want help managing your anxiety or getting better sleep? There’s no need to wait for an appointment. Get immediate, real-time support via text with a trained behavioral health coach day or night, 365 days a year.

Want help managing stress and anxiety, or building self-confidence to take that next big step? A Ginger behavioral health coach can help with any challenge you may be facing.

Ginger coaches explain how they can help:

Therapy & Psychiatry

Your coach may recommend adding a therapist or psychiatrist to your care team.

Ginger’s licensed therapists and psychiatrists are included in the Cigna behavioral health network and can be added to your care team for sessions via video.

If needed, medication can be prescribed by our psychiatrists, to help manage more severe mental health symptoms.

Costs for therapy and psychiatry are separate from coaching fees, and are determined by your benefit plan.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I sign up?

After downloading the Ginger app, you will need to enter your health plan information to verify your eligibility.

On the "Let's begin" screen, click on the button that says “Enter health insurance info”. You will then need to enter your:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • DOB
  • Member ID

Your Member ID is always located on the front of your health insurance card, and is sometimes referred to as the Policy Number. It is not the Group Number. When entering your Member ID be sure to include the last 2 digits of your member ID# (usually is 01, 02, 03).
