Behavioral Health Overview

Tufts Health Public Plans

We are committed to supporting care for patients with behavioral health needs. The Behavioral Health Care Management Team coordinates the delivery and utilization of behavioral health services for Tufts Health Plan members. We believe that optimal care results from a partnership among members, providers and the care management team.

About our behavioral health services

  • Behavioral health services offer varying levels of care management to members based on need, intensity of utilization and/or coexisting medical conditions.
  • Care managers offer 24/7 toll-free clinical access, triage, service authorization and utilization review at 888.257.1985. They also work closely with medical/social care managers and PCPs to provide a coordinated care approach.
