Behavioral Health Services Only Plan - Washington State Local Health Insurance - CHPW

Behavioral Health Services Only Plan

Behavioral Health Services Only plan 

If you already have health coverage through another program, like Medicare, Tribal Health, or Foster Care, you can get additional coverage just for mental health and substance use disorder services through our Behavioral Health Services Only (BHSO) plan.  

You won’t have copays for services that are covered or approved from in-network providers. 

Mental health care 

You don’t need a referral to see a mental health specialist through CHPW. Mental health coverage includes evaluation, medication management, family treatment, and crisis services. Learn more.

Substance use disorder treatment 

Your coverage includes assessment and screening, opiate services, inpatient residential treatment, and counseling.

Other services

Other services that may be covered under your BHSO plan include emergency services, hospital services, evaluations, and lab services.

Prescriptions are covered through your physical health benefit, not as part of CHPW’s BHSO plan.

This is not a full list of our covered benefits. Some services require a referral from your primary care provider or prior authorization from us. There are limits to some benefits and services, and some are covered if we determine that they are medically necessary or under Apple Health without a managed care plan.
