At Health Options, we are committed to prioritizing mental and emotional wellbeing along with physical health. To support this ethic, all plans (with the exception of HSA-compatible plans) offer the first in-network outpatient behavioral health visit — in person or online/telephonic — for Members and dependents at no cost-share. In fact, Health Options will cover a medical visit and a behavioral health visit– inpatient or out-patient — on the same day, to facilitate same-day referrals. We want our Members to easily get help whenever and wherever they need it.
All plans provide benefits for inpatient, outpatient, and day-treatment program services for mental health and substance use disorders when you receive them from an in-network provider. When choosing your providers and treatment facilities, it is best to stay as close to your community as possible, so that your supports are near when you need them. Benefits, cost-sharing, and a care management approach are the same for behavioral health services as for other medical or clinical services.
