Rehabilitative behavioral health services

First Choice now has a network of mental health providers who work directly with us to make sure you have access to the care you need.

Covered services

Rehabilitative behavioral health services (RBHS) include behavior modification, psychosocial rehabilitative services, and family support services. These services help to support you as you manage your behavioral health care.

  • Behavioral health screening.
  • Diagnostic assessment services.
  • Psychological evaluation and testing.
  • Individual psychotherapy.
  • Group psychotherapy.
  • Family psychotherapy.
  • School-based Mental Health Services.
  • Service plan development.

  • Psychosocial rehabilitation services.
  • Behavior modification.
  • Family support.
  • Peer support services (DMH and DAODAS providers only).
  • Substance use disorder treatment services (DAODAS providers only).

Prior authorization

Your provider can help determine if a rehabilitative behavioral health service needs prior authorization by calling First Choice. If prior authorization is needed, your provider will handle the process for you. There are no copayments for rehabilitative behavioral health services.
