Anxiety. Depression. Substance Abuse. Behavioral health is an important component of our total health. Our bodies and minds work as one. That's why Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield offers mental health and substance abuse benefits as part of our medical plans.

Our extensive provider network includes psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, psychiatric nurses, and other mental health and employee assistance providers. The facility network includes hospital inpatient units, residential treatment centers, partial hospitalization programs, and intensive outpatient services and programs.

We recommend that you verify the benefits and eligibility prior to treatment to ensure participation and accurate utilization management rules are applied throughout treatment.
