PA Behavioral Health Connection

The PA Behavioral Health Connection (BHC) was created in 2008 as a joint initiative between the Pennsylvania Department of Aging APPRISE Program and the Behavioral Health Community. The BHC's primary objective is to assist Pennsylvanians who have qualified for Medicare and who are living with behavioral health issues in receiving appropriate access to the APPRISE Network and other Center for Medicare & Medicaid Customer Service Programs. The BHC offers technical assistance to APPRISE Programs statewide to support those living with behavioral health issues, regardless of age, in obtaining necessary Medicare services to meet their behavioral health treatment needs, especially prescription drugs. The BHC addresses referrals regarding behavioral health Medicare coverage via telephone, email, community outreach events and state conferences. 

If you are interested in hosting a training at your agency or workplace we are happy to present information during a lunch hour or half-day training related to Medicare, behavioral health services covered by Medicare, and available low-income assistance programs.
