Behavioral Health Toolkit for Medical Providers

As a physician, you play a unique and important role in the lives of your patients. Your commitment to delivering quality patient care with compassion drives positive health outcomes for those with physical and/or behavioral health concerns.

To help you service your patients through the Optum Behavioral Health Network or Optum EAP, we offer a variety of resources on our Provider Express website. Access this site to learn more about how you can coordinate with Optum to help your patients achieve better overall outcomes for their physical needs, behavioral challenges, or both.

The relationship between physical and behavioral health is as complex as the range of specialties dealing with each one. Now, our Behavioral Health Toolkit and Care Advocates simplify it, so you can match patients with the right behavioral health professional.

Your patients who are members and who need behavioral health assistance, may call 855-Here4TN (855-437-3486) to access services (the number on the back of their member ID card).
