Mental Health and Substance Abuse Benefits

MIT provides MyLife Services as an employee benefit for faculty, staff, postdoc associates and postdoc fellows, and family members.

MyLife Services provides up to four free and confidential counseling sessions per person, per concern, with a licensed mental health professional. If you or your family member choose to continue seeing a mental health professional for an ongoing concern after those four sessions, you may use your health insurance coverage; copayments, coinsurance, or deductible charges may be required.

Call MyLife Services at 844-405-5433 for confidential assistance from a real person 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Additional information is available on the MyLife Services website

Outpatient benefit overview

Members of all three MIT health plans will be covered for visits to both in- and out-of-network mental health providers, though out-of-pocket costs will be lower if you see an in-network provider. You do not need an authorization or referral to begin necessary outpatient mental health care.
