We are committed to delivering quality behavioral health and wellness services to millions of consumers nationwide through partnerships with states, counties, regional agencies and provider organizations.

Our approach

Each state and local government has unique behavioral health care priorities, delivery-system challenges and program goals. Beacon Health Options develops and implements cost-effective and recovery-focused behavioral health care programs that are responsive to consumers and families, whether they are Medicaid-eligible or uninsured. Leveraging expert data analysis, industry best practices, leading-edge technology, Beacon Health Options can help our public sector clients:

  • Maximize the use of state and federal dollars through a Braided FundingSM financial model. Braided FundingSM helps states pool Medicaid dollars and other funds, improves coordination between agencies, enhances accountability, and allocates scarce taxpayer dollars in the most efficient manner possible.

  • Improve the delivery of care to consumers and families using proven treatment techniques.
  • Enhance the quality of life for consumers and families with consumer-centered care, promoting the principles of self determination, recovery and resiliency. People with mental illness can and do recover.
  • Pave the way for future behavioral health care innovations with technology-driven solutions such as tele-psychiatry. This program brings needed mental health services to those residing in remote areas.
