Beginning January 1, 2008, the behavioral health benefits (in-network providers only) for UC employees in Health Net, CIGNA, Western Health Advantage, Blue Cross PLUS and Blue Cross PPO (out-of-network providers are also available) will be covered by United Behavioral Health (UBH). These behavioral health benefits also will be available to those enrolled in a Kaiser - CA plan.
In order to ensure a smooth transition, you may be eligible for a transition of care benefit for up to six months. To be eligible, you must be in treatment with an in-network provider in your current plan, or in a plan that currently has out-of-network benefits and will only offer in-network benefits after January 1, 2008. Transition of care benefits are needed only if the provider is not in the UBH provider network.
Additional information about behavioral health benefits is available online. To confirm that your provider is in the UBH network and to find out more about UBH and the transition of care benefit, visit their website and enter the access code: 11280. You can also contact UBH by calling 888-440-8225.
