Behavioral Health

All medical plans include behavioral health benefits for emotional, physical, family and legal needs.

Effective January 1, 2020, our members enrolled in an Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (“BCBS”) Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) Plan will receive their behavioral health benefits through Anthem Behavioral Health.

Copayments and coinsurance will remain the same as in 2019.

If you are enrolled in an Anthem PPO and are currently seeing a provider covered by Cigna Behavioral Health, we encourage you to check your provider’s status with Anthem Behavioral Health.

Coverage for those enrolled in Cigna and Kaiser Permanente health plans will remain the same as in 2019.
