What is UMA?

UMA Health is an online marketplace that connect you to a wide range quality mental health providers. Use UMA to find a provider, schedule an appointment, and pay for your visit directly- all through the website!

How do I know which provider to choose?

With UMA, you can filter your search for providers by mental health speciality, location, transparent cost, availability, ratings, gender, language and more! Check out different provider profiles to learn more about their background, and pick the best fit for you!

How does payment work?

Upon booking an appointment, you will be prompted to securely enter your credit card information. You will be charged immediately to lock in the appointment slot. It’s quick, confidential, and easy! UMA has partnered with the reputable third-party payment processor, Stripe. Stripe saves your payment information for all future purchases, as is common on most shopping/booking websites.

Can providers change their prices?

On UMA, providers set their own rates. As it is a marketplace, providers may choose to lower or raise their prices as they see fit. We hope this flexibility encourages a fair range of pricing so that everyone can find an appointment cost that works for them. Prices on UMA are transparent and paid upfront through our website.

What is the cancellation policy?

We ask that you cancel as soon as possible so your provider can open up the slot for another client. You may cancel your appointment at any time. There is currently no penalty and you receive your money back.

What if I need to reschedule an appointment?

You can reschedule your appointment at any time. Simply click on “cancel appointment” in your upcoming appointments for a full refund. Search for another provider/appointment slot and book at a time that’s convenient for you.

Do I need insurance to use UMA? What if I have an HSA?

UMA operates entirely outside of insurance. Conveniently pay for your appointments with your credit card on file, as you typically do when shopping/booking other services online! You can, however, use your Health Savings credit card for certain UMA appointments. If a provider accepts HSA payment, it will be clearly listed on their profile. If you do have insurance, you can still separately use UMA and avoid the hassle of copays or deductibles.
