Behavioral Health and Chronic Disease

More than one-third of patients living with chronic disease also suffer from behavioral health problems, complicating medical care. When depression, substance use, or other behavioral health problems are undiagnosed or poorly treated, patients suffer and expenses soar.



Since 1991, the College Health IPA (CHIPA) has been providing managed behavioral health services to California residents, making it one of the state's largest regional behavioral health delivery systems to address the issues presented by behavioral health and chronic disease. Beacon Health Strategies is a Massachusetts-based, NCQA-accredited managed behavioral health organization.
