CareFirst BCBS, Headway partnership to boost mental healthcare access

CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield is collaborating with the mental health startup Headway to increase access to behavioral health services for the 3.5 million people it serves in Maryland, Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C.

Headway's online platform is available to CareFirst's network of mental health providers at no cost and will enable efficient scheduling and billing, according to an Aug. 2 Carefirst news release. This will allow providers to focus on care delivery rather than administrative tasks.

CareFirst members can browse and book appointments with clinicians based specialty, demographic information, real-time availability and obtain immediate price transparency, according to the news release.
