Every Coloradan deserves affordable, comprehensive coverage that provides them with convenient and safe access to care to effectively address physical, mental, and social well-being. To achieve this goal, health insurers are leading the way, pioneering innovative programs to improve the behavioral health of their members. These initiatives include raising patient awareness of the importance of behavioral health, providing resources that improve patients’ behavioral health literacy, expanding access to tele-behavioral health, and investing in models of integrated, multidisciplinary care teams. Health insurance providers are also working to reduce stigma and isolation, encourage collaborations with providers, expand provider networks, and proactively identify behavioral health needs for members.
