Behavioral Health Insurance Information

Last Updated Friday, May 02, 2014 12:06:53 PM

El Camino Hospital contracts with the following health insurance plans as of February, 2014. Plans are subject to change without notice. We recommend you contact not only your physician and any specialists you visit to inquire about the health insurance plans they accept, but also your insurance company directly to verify they have contracts with these physicians as well.

Coverage for psychiatric and behavioral health (mental health) services varies by each health plan. Some plans have a "carve out" for mental health care, meaning these services are covered by a separate organization which the patient must contact directly.

Please check your insurance ID card and contact your insurance carrier to determine if your mental health benefits are carved out to another organization. (For example, currently Blue Shield HMO members access Magellan Health Services and Health Net HMO members access Managed Health Network (MHN), etc.)
