Drive your Plan with Data – Part 2
Posted by Medavie Blue Cross on May 10, 2022
We’ve expanded eligible practitioner types and increased maximums under our Mental Health Practitioners benefit. Our standard coverage for new plans is $1,000 minimum and the list of eligible practitioners now includes Psychologists, Social Workers, Registered Counseling Therapists and Psychoeducators.
Connected Care: Available to all members, our digital health platform connects them to innovative and effective health solutions, including solutions for mental health.
Through partnerships with leading providers, we offer premium access to options including internet-enabled Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (iCBT) programs and live therapy. This allows plan members to access care from the privacy of their homes in the modality of care they choose.
A recent addition to our ever-expanding suite of services is an app to help build resilience and support regular exercising of the mind, also known as mindfulness. Members can access training programs and guided meditations from a global network of experts. This timely solution enables self-care, builds resilience, and promotes ongoing mental health support.
We also offer Pharmacogenetic testing through Connected Care to help advance mental health treatment. Also known as personalized medicine, this solution uses the member’s unique genetic profile to provide insights to help treating physicians choose the right medications and dosage for optimal health outcomes. This can be a game changer and means members can often find the right mental health drug at the right dose the first time.
