If you are living with a mental health condition, you may be struggling to cope with life’s challenges effectively. You are not alone. One in five adults will need mental health treatment in his or her lifetime. The good news is that help is available.
Companion Benefit Alternatives (CBA) offers case management to help guide members through the treatment process. CBA is a separate company that manages behavioral health benefits on behalf of BlueChoice. Case management is a free, voluntary program. When you join the program, you will partner with a case manager. Your case manager will help you get the most out of your behavioral health, medical and pharmacy benefits.
Case managers can help with a variety of conditions, including:
- Alcohol or drug use.
- Bipolar disorder.
- Borderline personality disorder.
- Eating disorders.
Your case manager will serve as your personal advocate, working with you to help you reach your goals.
