In 1989, Behavioral Health Systems recognized the need to address the full-range of mental health and substance abuse-related services. For more than 30 years, BHS has managed behavioral health through a 50,000-member preferred provider organization (PPO) to employers nationwide. BHS’ advantages include the open network PPO model, ensuring maximum freedom of choice, continuity of care for individuals accessing Employee Assistance Program (EAP) benefits and needing long-term treatment and the fee-for service approach, which provides maximum cost savings and coverage flexibility. BHS programs include:
Behavioral Health: Solutions for all mental health, substance abuse and EAP needs. Under the “carve-out” program, BHS seamlessly integrated its services for employers and their members. Enhanced programs include Behavioral Comp Management and Rx Management.
EAP & Work-Life: Tailored work-life solutions include BHS’ stand-alone EAP services; Wellness First, a program to support each employer’s unique goals; and robust education/training services. BHS’ well-being programs assist employees in managing personal issues while maintaining focus at work.
Drug Testing: Safety First, BHS’ drug testing division, conducts pre-employment, random, post-accident, reasonable suspicion, and return-to-work drug screening. All claims processing, MRO, billing and management reports are provided through one source. The program can be stand-alone or integrated with BHS.
