This integration will unite best-in-class services under one name and will provide several benefits to members and providers, including:
- A fully integrated delivery model for medical and Behavioral Health services, supporting the needs of both members and providers.
- An enhanced member experience with centralized medical and Behavioral Health services and benefits to provide continuity in care.
- A streamlined approach to delivering service and support, with a single point of contact and benefits administration for providers.
