Behavioral Health Services
Behavioral Health is as important as physical health. That’s why we have coverage for both. You are eligible for behavioral health services, also called mental health services. Behavioral health services can help you with personal problems that may affect you and your family. These problems may be stress, depression, anxiety or using drugs or alcohol.
Your PCP might think your behavioral needs are better served through services covered by a Behavioral Health Organization at a Community Mental Health or Substance Use Disorder Services agency. If so, your PCP will send you there for an evaluation. If the evaluation results determine you need this level of service, you may continue to get your behavioral health care from the Agency.

Required care is 100% covered with no copay. If you need behavioral health care, your PCP and UnitedHealthcare Community Plan can help coordinate your care.
- Cover assessment for mental health services and treatment such as counseling, testing, and medications for addressing mental health symptoms.
- Cover lower and mid-level intensity treatment.
- Provide screening for substance use disorder and may make a referral to either a plan covered service or a community provider for further assessment.
