Behavioral Health

Banner – University Health Plans (B – UHP) is committed to the facilitation and coordination of care for members to ensure optimal integrated care. Many of our members have complex behavioral health and physical health conditions that require multiple providers to communicate their treatment approaches and interventions to improve the member’s care. 

B – UHP’s providers are expected to respond and participate in these care coordination activities and are encouraged to contact us if there care coordination concerns.

Behavioral Health Materials and Forms

Court Ordered Evaluation (COE) and Court Ordered Treatment (COT)

What happens when an individual appears to be in need of psychiatric treatment but is unwilling or unable to consent to treatment? Under Arizona law (Title 36) a person eighteen years of age or older may be ordered by the court to undergo psychiatric evaluation and ordered into treatment. This can happen on an inpatient or outpatient basis. The documents on this page explain the legal process, answer some frequently asked questions, and provide additional resources to anyone who wants to learn more.
