MOUNT LAUREL, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Array Behavioral Care, the largest telepsychiatry practice in the country and a thought leader in modern behavioral care, announced today its expansion with Aetna, a CVS Health company, as an in-network behavioral health provider for members in all 50 states. With this Aetna expansion, along with its other payers, Array AtHome’s telepsychiatry and behavioral care services are now a covered insurance benefit for 87 million people.
Array has been a telepsychiatry provider to Aetna since 2008 through a legacy company and became an in-network covered benefit for members in 2016, serving 12 states. The new national contract comes after a strong track record of quality care and improving behavioral health outcomes. Among Aetna members, Array has achieved a net promoter score of 62 — nearly twice the healthcare industry’s average — indicating widespread high satisfaction and loyalty. Additionally, Array has pioneered collaborative care models, including adult and child telepsychiatry programs, in which primary care providers (PCPs) and Array clinicians collaborate to proactively manage behavioral symptoms to the point of remission.
“Amid the mental health crisis we’re seeing nationwide, we are continuously looking to provide our members with expanded access to evidence-based mental wellbeing services,” said Dr. Hyong Un, Chief Psychiatric and Innovation Officer for Aetna. “Array’s embrace of data-driven care, focused on integration, is a key component of our efforts. We are excited to further expand our relationship.”
With Array, patients have ongoing access to secure, online video calls with a clinician matched to their needs. Array has the largest and most-trusted virtual team of licensed psychiatry clinicians in the country, including adult and child and adolescent psychiatrists, as well as a variety of other licensed behavioral clinicians. From stress to depression, anxiety, trauma, and more, Array’s clinicians treat the gamut of behavioral health needs, providing ongoing talk therapy, psychiatric assessment, and medication management, if needed. Array’s clinicians are also fluent in multiple languages, including Spanish, French, Russian, Dutch, Hindi, Farsi, and Portuguese, enabling Array to reach a diverse set of patients.
