Beacon Health Options combines two of the country’s most prominent behavioral health companies – Beacon Health Strategies and ValueOptions. Together we serve more than 45 million people across all 50 states and the United Kingdom. We began as two companies with one common mission: helping people live life to the fullest potential. Today, we are Beacon Health Options – providing best-in-class behavioral health solutions for regional and specialty health plans; employers and labor organizations; and federal, state and local governments.
Through its legacy companies, Beacon Health Options has delivered managed behavioral health services for more than 30 years. We operate Medicaid and other publicly funded programs in 24 states and the District of Columbia, serving approximately 11.5 million members through direct-to-state contracts and more than 50 health plan partners across the country.
We support the mental health and substance use needs of individuals through our proven managed care strategies and our innovative clinical and technological approaches to integrated care. With a focus on the individual, we provide tailor-made solutions at the local level and a true understanding of the populations we serve: persons with Serious and Persistent Mental Illness; children and families experiencing serious emotional issues; those struggling with substance abuse; the chronically homeless, and others facing complex challenges.
