CVS Health is preparing to launch a behavioral health pilot program in 34 HealthHUB locations in four states. The pilot launched at 17 HealthHUB locations in three states: Florida (six locations), Pennsylvania (four locations); and Texas (seven locations). By July 2021, 17 more pilot locations are slated to open with six in New Jersey, one in Florida, three in Pennsylvania, and seven in Texas.
For the pilot the HealthHUBs, which provide consumers with care concierge services for chronic disease management and other primary and preventive care services, are working with the CVS MinuteClinic service, which provides direct medical services. Mental health counseling services are provided by a MinuteClinic® licensed therapist within a CVS® HealthHUB™ location. The social workers provide adults ages 18 and older with behavioral assessments, referrals, on-the-spot counseling, and personalized care plans.
The behavioral health services at the pilot HealthHUB locations are available during standard HealthHUB hours. Appointments are available days, evenings, and weekends. The sessions are held in private consultation rooms. The consumer can opt to for in-person face-to-face visits, or a telehealth session.
