Behavioral Health HEDIS Measures Toolkit

We value everything you do to deliver quality care to our members — your patients — to ensure they have a positive healthcare experience. There are several HEDIS® behavioral health measures that providers can directly impact related to follow-up care for mental illness or substance use disorders, medication adherence, and metabolic monitoring. That’s why we’ve created this easy-to-use At-A-Glance Toolkit. It will give you the tools you need to meet, document, and code HEDIS® measures. Together, we can provide the care and services our members need to stay healthy while also improving our quality scores and Star Ratings. Please contact your Provider Relations Representative if you need more information or have any questions.
