How do members get care?

If you need mental health or substance use disorder treatment services, you can see a provider that is part of our behavioral health network. You do not need a referral to see a doctor. You can pick or change your behavioral health provider at any time. Some behavioral health providers can give you primary medical care.

You may self-refer directly to the Community Mental Health Centers and Alcohol/Drug Treatment Centers, located in or adjacent to each county, which provide behavioral health services.
