Behavioral Health

Many people think mental disorders are rare. In fact, they are common. A mental illness can affect thoughts and behavior. It can make it hard to cope with normal life routines.


What's Covered?

If you think you may have a mental or emotional problem, it is important to remember there is help. MDwise covers behavioral health services for our members. These services include:

 
  • Mental health
