Medicaid Offers New Behavioral Health Services for Youth

Keeping our youth healthy – both physically and mentally – is a top priority for us. That is why we recently expanded our coverage to add new behavioral health (or mental health) services for youth ages 11-18. These new services offer community-based programs and family support while keeping youth at home and in school.
