Help control costs and improve health
Helping employees deal with their mental health conditions isn’t just good medicine — it’s good business. People with high rates of medical services use have a higher prevalence of depression and anxiety disorders.
Our behavioral health programs can help employers control costs and employees find the care they need. Members have access to:
- Self-screening tools to understand their health risks
- Educational materials to learn more about their condition
- Case management services to help coordinate their care and increase follow-through on their treatment
Condition management programs
People with chronic medical conditions — such as diabetes, asthma and heart disease — are more likely to have problems with depression, anxiety and substance abuse.
Our condition management program is designed to identify and treat these co-existing conditions early on. This can help members avoid complications and improve their quality of life.
Behavioral Health Condition Management
Mind, body and personal well-being intersect. You nay have seen someone struggle with a behavioral health condition that affects the ability to live life fully. Keeping members well — and costs low — starts with an approach that treats the whole person. It includes critical touch points to help them take control of their condition and stay engaged in treatment.
We focus on key conditions that affect members’ daily lives, such as:
- Eating disorders
- Bipolar disorder
- Substance abuse
- Psychotic disorders
This support program automatically comes with members’ behavioral health benefit.
It’s designed to help members and their families feel healthy, well and whole again.
