Is anger management covered by insurance?

Anger Management is a skills-based class or program where participants learn practical tools to effectively manage their anger through the use of a curriculum or workbook. Many clinicians in private practice advertise that they provide anger management when in fact they are providing psychotherapy. Those who focus on helping clients with managing anger have special training and are certified in anger management. Anger is an emotion, and rage or aggression is a learned behavior rather than a mental disorder. Anger is not a medical diagnosis and anger management is not psychotherapy; therefore, it is not covered by health insurance. Many studies show that psychotherapy alone does not help improve anger management.
