Behavioral Health and Substance Use

Caring for your patients with behavioral health issues is important to their overall health. We are here to help you understand and address their health care needs.

Behavioral Health issues can vary widely. Anxiety and depression, smoking, the misuse of alcohol, medication and illicit substances all have the ability to negatively affect your patients’ quality of life.

Recognizing the signs of a mental health disorder is not always easy. Your role as the provider plays a significant part in our members’ care which can improve outcomes and the quality of life for members. Screenings, discussing and addressing mental health and substance abuse issues helps ensure members are receiving the right care.

EmblemHealth provides broad-based coverage for the diagnosis and treatment of behavioral health conditions, at least equal to the coverage provided for other health conditions.
