United Behavioral Health
Need help with a mental health or substance abuse problem?
We offer our members convenient and confidential services through United Behavioral Health (UBH). UBH can help members with troubles affecting their family, job, and happiness. UBH can also assist members with a substance abuse problem.
How to get Help
To get help, members can simply call 1-800-867-6758 (TTY/TDD hearing impaired 1-800-486-7914) to talk to an experienced mental health care professional. He or she will determine the member's needs and will link him or her with a mental health or substance abuse health care professional in that area that is most qualified to meet the member's needs. This is called “authorization.” It helps members get the help they need quickly and conveniently.
