We are making the shift to better care

Apple Health is shifting to whole-person care. This means care is coordinated so it's easier for people get the help they need for physical health, mental health, substance use, prescription needs, and local resources. 

You will still get the same benefits you get today. The only difference is that your Apple Health plan will manage, approve, and pay for mental health and substance use treatment.

We recognize change can be disruptive, but we have put resources in place so the transition is as smooth as possible.
