Behavioral Health

Banner University Health Plans (BUHP) 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. 

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