Mental Health Program Changes Reminder

Aug. 24, 2020

As of Sept. 1, 2020, we are managing mental health services for HealthSelect of Texas® and Consumer Directed HealthSelectSM (HealthSelect) participants. Magellan Healthcare® is no longer administering mental health benefits for these participants.

As of Sept. 1, 2020, Psychological and Neuropsychological Testing mental health services for HealthSelect participants no longer requires prior authorization by BCBSTX medical management. The 9/1/2020 HealthSelect prior authorization lists have been updated to reflect this change.

For more information about the HealthSelect and Consumer Directed HealthSelect plans, visit the Employees Retirement System of Texas (ERS) section on our provider website.
