Behavioral health

Integrated healthcare

Amerigroup District of Columbia, Inc. facilitates integrated physical and behavioral health services as a vital part of healthcare. Our mission is to address the physical and behavioral healthcare of enrollees by offering a wide range of targeted interventions, education, and enhanced access to care to ensure improved outcomes and quality of life for enrollees.

We work collaboratively with hospitals, group practices, independent behavioral healthcare providers, community, government agencies, human service districts, and other resources. This enables Amerigroup to successfully meet the needs of enrollees with mental health and substance use disorders as well as those with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Behavioral Health Areas of Expertise Profile (BHAEP)

The BHAEP is designed to highlight your services, cultural preferences, race, languages spoken, and specialties to our enrollees through the enhancement of our online provider directory. Your answers to the brief survey below will help our enrollees find the right behavioral health provider to fit their unique needs. While extremely helpful in promoting your services, completion of the BHAEP does not affect your credentialing materials/status or provider contract. Because any representation of a clinical area of expertise is based on your self-disclosure and professional judgment, please only select those items that fall within the scope of your state-issued license and clinical experience.

Prior authorizations

We recommend you submit prior authorization requests via interactive care reviewer (ICR), our secure Utilization Management tool available in Availity Essentials.* With ICR, you can submit or check status of a request, attach clinical documentation and auto-authorize more than 40 common procedures. You may also fax your request via one of the forms below.
