Health Insurance Providers Are Offering Behavioral Health Care on Par with Medical/Surgical Health Care
October 2, 2018
Untreated behavioral health conditions, which includes both mental health and substance use disorders (MH/SUD), have a significant impact on individuals, families, communities, our economy, and society. Individuals with mental health conditions and/or substance use disorders need access to evidence-based care, coordination with their primary medical care, and assistance with community support services such as housing, transportation, and job training. Health insurance providers recognize the importance of these services in contributing to the overall well-being of consumers and are committed to implementing programs that ensure patients have affordable access to quality, evidence-based treatments and care.
