Starting Jan. 1, 2021, we eliminated the behavioral health copay when a UnitedHealthcare commercial plan member sees a behavioral health specialist and a primary care physician:
This is to help better integrate behavioral health (BH) services into the primary care delivery system, as well as meet the new single-member copay requirements in Rhode Island.
QIBHPCPs certified as such by the Rhode Island Office of the Health Insurance Commissioner are subject to the single-member copay requirements.
To confirm if your practice is a certified QIBHPCP, go to ohic.ri.gov.
Please contact your UnitedHealthcare representative or call the number on the member’s ID card.
