One in four U.S. adults will have a mental illness this year—25 percent of our population, making this illness more common than most diseases we talk about. The good news is that there are many effective treatments, for those who seek care…but not everyone does due to stigma.
ValueOptions® is committed to removing the stigma that surrounds mental illness. Join us as we stamp out this too-frequent barrier to seeking care.
Attention Network Providers: ValueOptions Signs Definitive Agreement to Merge with Beacon Health Strategies
We have exciting news! ValueOptions has signed a definitive agreement, whereby our company will merge with Beacon Health Strategies.
ValueOptions greatly appreciates your partnership and the work you do every day in helping individuals live their lives to the fullest potential. By bringing the complementary service offerings of these two companies together, we are introducing a premier behavioral health company with expanded capabilities to the marketplace to better serve our provider partners, like you.
The merger brings together two mission-driven companies that share similar visions – to improve the health and social wellbeing of individuals suffering from mental health and substance abuse conditions through recovery-focused programs and effective provider partnerships.
Until the merger is approved by federal and state government regulators, which is expected in the later part of 2014, the companies will continue to operate as independent organizations, including in our contractual arrangements with providers – nothing changes. Following the approval of the merger, ValueOptions and Beacon will endeavor to build upon our strong provider partnerships by aligning clinical management policies and streamlining our administrative processes.
We hope you share our enthusiasm for this news and look forward to continuing our partnership together in the months and years to come!
