AbleTo, Inc., the leading technology-enabled behavioral health provider proven to improve clinical outcomes and lower healthcare costs, announced today a new partnership with MAP Health Management, the leading telehealth provider of peer support services for individuals struggling with addiction and other behavioral health conditions. Aetna members in the states of Florida, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Texas will now benefit from coordinated services between AbleTo and MAP, ensuring a holistic and comprehensive approach to mental health care.
AbleTo partnered with MAP Health Management to offer holistic and comprehensive mental health care to Aetna members.
The relationship between substance use disorders and mental health needs is well-established, with data showing that about half of those who experience a substance use disorder may also experience a mental illness during their lives. The partnership between AbleTo and MAP provides a coordinated approach to ensure that the needs of Aetna members are addressed with the highest quality care.
“Mental health needs can be complex, and too often not adequately addressed through siloed solutions,” said Trip Hofer, CEO, AbleTo. “That is especially true for those with substance use, as we know there is a bidirectional relationship between addiction disorders and mental health needs. Our new partnership with MAP offers a better approach to coordinate mental health care for Aetna members and connect them seamlessly to the right care for their needs.”
