Blue Shield of California adds Ginger to behavioral health program

Blue Shield of California is offering members enrolled in Wellvolution, its behavioral health program, access to personalized mental healthcare from Ginger. 

Ginger, a part of Headspace Health, now provides program members with on-demand mental health coaching and activities through their smartphone, as well as video therapy and psychiatry sessions. 

The payer added Headspace to its Wellvolution program in October, and has expanded the partnership to include its full suite of mental and behavioral health services. 

"Mental health is not a linear journey, and thus, members need access to a full continuum of preventative and clinical care services that can meet them where they are, at any moment in time," said Dana Udall, PhD, chief clinical officer of Headspace Health. "Ginger and the larger Headspace Health platform support members wherever they may be along that mental health and wellbeing spectrum, from thriving, to coping to struggling."
