Behavioral health benefits
With a plan from Independence Blue Cross, you can access the following benefits.
Independence believes your overall health includes both your physical and emotional well-being. That’s why we make it easy for you1 to use behavioral health services through the tele-behavioral health benefit. You can have virtual visits by phone or video chat from the comfort of your home, or anywhere that’s convenient for you. Visits will be held with a licensed health care professional (including psychiatrists, psychologists, and counselors). Virtual visits are convenient, flexible, and completely confidential. You'll pay the same amount as you would for an in-office behavioral health visit.
To get started, simply locate a tele-behavioral health provider by calling the number on the back of your ID card under Mental Health/Substance Abuse. You can also check with your current provider to see if he or she offers virtual visit options.
