Blue Cross Blue Shield Behavioral Health Coverage

Insurance Plans Are Accepted at Alter Behavioral Health

At Alter Behavioral Health, we are committed to providing California residents with top-quality mental health and behavioral health treatment that ensures they can have stability and balance in their overall health and well-being. The prevalence of mental and behavioral disorders in America is high, with approximately 1 in 5 Americans actively living with a mental health or behavioral health disorder. Without the proper diagnosis or treatment, it can feel overwhelming attempting to manage the symptoms of these conditions, leaving some people to turn to ulterior methods of coping — substance use, unhealthy methods of self-regulation, or engaging in unhealthy or risky behaviors. That’s why it’s important to know that Alter Behavioral Health can help, and we accept Blue Cross Blue Shield behavioral health coverage, which can help make this important care more affordable for policyholders.

California residents can turn to our trusted mental health practitioners and clinicians who will work with you to give you a proper diagnosis and offer you appropriate and effective methods of treatment. With the right treatment methods and knowledge of the specifics of your behavioral health disorder, we know that you’ll find harmony and balance in your life, allowing you to thrive and achieve the happiness you’re seeking.

When you’re ready to seek out help for your behavioral health condition, it’s common for there to be questions about the cost of your treatment programs. At Alter Behavioral Health, we accept major insurance companies, including Blue Cross Blue Shield behavioral health coverage, to help supplement the cost of your treatment program. Our first step is getting to know you and your specific circumstances to identify your specific needs. Once we gain an understanding of the treatment programs you’ll require, we can provide a cost estimate for you. From there, we can verify your insurance over the phone or on our website, to help determine the amount of coverage you are eligible for with your insurance plan. We understand that navigating the ins and outs of insurance policies can be challenging if you haven’t done it before. Our team will alleviate any stress by taking the lead on this, allowing you to focus on your upcoming treatment process.

What is Behavioral Health?

The term behavioral health encompasses any contributions to your overall mental wellness and health. This can include mental health disorders, substance use disorders, behaviors or behavioral habits that can be negative or positive, emotional functioning or processing, thought patterns, and any external forces contributing to your perceptions or thought processes. 

Behavioral health treatment focuses on addressing any negative impacts from your behaviors or behavioral health through evidence-based therapy methods, holistic treatments, and skill development that focuses on emotional regulation, stress management, and healthy relationships. The goal of behavioral health treatment is to prepare you with the tools you need to thoroughly understand how your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors can contribute to your mental wellness. With this knowledge, you can be confident about your ability to manage any stressors or triggers in order to maintain a healthy, balanced emotional and mental well-being. 

Who Would Benefit from Behavioral Health Treatment?

Behavioral health treatment is ideal for anyone who is experiencing the impacts of imbalanced emotional and mental well-being. If you’re noticing that you’re struggling to regulate your emotions or control impulsive, unhealthy behaviors or thoughts and have experienced failed attempts at self-regulation, behavioral health treatment can be an option best suited for you.

The inability to manage behavioral health conditions can often have a ripple effect within a person’s life, leading to concerns about maintaining employment, discord within social relationships, changes in family relationships, physical health concerns, or changes in day-to-day activities or responsibilities. If you’re wondering if you should seek behavioral health treatment, call our compassionate team today to discuss your individual circumstances and get answers to any questions you have to determine if you or a loved one would benefit from the personalized care offered at Alter Behavioral Health.

What to Know About Blue Cross Blue Shield Behavioral Health Coverage

behavioral health coverage blue cross blue shield

Blue Cross Blue Shield does cover behavioral health programs. Depending on the specifics of your insurance plan, the extent of your Blue Cross Blue Shield behavioral health coverage may vary. Typically, coverage is included for inpatient or outpatient care. Deciding which option to go with, inpatient or outpatient, will depend on what your primary health provider recommends and your personal availability. To access your insurance coverage, most plans will require that you pay a deductible first and, in some cases, you may be required to copay for your treatment costs with the insurance provider. This means that you may have to pay a certain percentage or portion of your treatment costs for each visit or therapy program attended. To find out more about the specifics of your insurance policy plan, speak with a Blue Cross Blue Shield representative that can help you navigate the requirements for your plan so you can begin your behavioral health treatment when you need it.

What Does BCBS Cover for Behavioral Health?

Blue Cross Blue Shield behavioral health coverage includes a variety of treatments, including: 

  • Inpatient treatment programs: This intensive method of treatment invites you to reside within a safe, supportive environment that has a structured daily schedule. Patients in these programs go through therapy sessions and behavioral therapies, developing coping tools for emotional regulation and stress management that promote a balanced lifestyle with stabilized behavioral health and wellness. 
  • Outpatient treatment: This form of treatment can include doctor visits, individual counseling, and other alternative methods of healing that target mental wellness. 
  • Emergency mental health care: This can include emergency hospital or psychiatric care visits that address any immediate needs and concerns.
  • Online treatment programs: These are available for some BCBS insurance plans, and can include specific behavioral health treatment plans such as virtual cognitive-behavioral therapy or accessing an online doctor that can complete psychiatric evaluation and treatment.
