CHIP Behavioral health

Some members diagnosed with severe mental health disorders or conditions (e.g., schizophrenia, autism) that significantly affect a child’s behavioral health may be eligible for a broader range of services. They may also have different benefit limitations. Call Member Services at 1-800-822-2447 if you have questions regarding your child’s eligibility for certain mental health services or benefit limits.

Substance abuse benefits

CHIP covers inpatient detoxification, non-hospital residential treatment and outpatient treatment relating to drug and alcohol abuse for your child.

If you think your child has a drug or alcohol problem, don’t delay getting them the help they need. The sooner a child begins treatment with a professional provider, the more likely they are to have a successful recovery.
