We negotiate rates with psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors and other appropriately licensed and credentialed behavioral health care providers to help you save money. We refer to these providers as being “in our network.”
Some of our plans pay for services from providers who are not in our network. For dates of service effective January 1, 2015, we have changed the percentage of allowed amounts paid to some out-of-network behavioral health providers. Our out-of-network rates are aligned with Medical and Medicare and are as follows:
|Providers||Percentage of Allowed Amount|
|Psychiatrists and Psychologists||100% of the allowed amount|
|Psychiatric Nurses, Nurse Practitioner (Behavioral Health focused) and Physician Assistant (Behavioral Health focused)||85%|
|Social Workers, Licensed Professional Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists, Drug and Alcohol Counselors, Psychological Examiner, Pastoral Counselor, Certified Addictions Counselors, Applied Behavior Analyst, Behavior Analysts Assistant||75%|
