What is depression?
More than just a bout of the blues, depression isn't a weakness and you can't simply "snap out" of it. Depression may require long-term treatment. But don't get discouraged. Most people with depression feel better with medication, psychotherapy or both. -The Mayo Clinic
What is anxiety?
These feelings of anxiety and panic interfere with daily activities, are difficult to control, are out of proportion to the actual danger and can last a long time. You may avoid places or situations to prevent these feelings. Symptoms may start during childhood or the teen years and continue into adulthood.
Examples of anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder (social phobia), specific phobias and separation anxiety disorder. You can have more than one anxiety disorder. Sometimes anxiety results from a medical condition that needs treatment.
Whatever form of anxiety you have, treatment can help. -The Mayo Clinic Suicide and Suicide IdeationsSuicide, taking your own life, is a tragic reaction to stressful life situations — and all the more tragic because suicide can be prevented.

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKENo short-term health insurance options
No individual health plans
Aetna's history dates back to 1853, and they now provide around 39 million people with Medicare Advantage plans, group insurance, and prescription drug coverage. One drawback with Aetna is that you can't buy individual health plans from them. This means that outside of Medicare & Medicaid supplements, you can only receive coverage from Aetna through an employer.
Aetna took our top position in the additional resources category because it is committed to putting an increased emphasis on mental health. They demonstrate this with an impressive range of different support options for behavioral health and specific programs to help people manage mental illnesses.

Cigna is a global insurance company and one of the oldest providers in the United States. When you choose a Cigna plan, you may not need out-of-network approvals, and they have excellent round-the-clock virtual care, which is why they took our top spot for telehealth services.
