It’s as Important as Your
Physical Health

Your ConnectiCare plan includes confidential support, treatment, and resources for stressful situations and treatment of substance use disorder, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and other mental illness. Mental health and substance use disorder treatment benefits are available through Optum® to anyone covered by your ConnectiCare plan, including dependents living away from home.

In an emergency, the first concern is your health. Call 911 or get to an emergency room as soon as possible.


Visit and use the provider search to find counselors, psychiatrists, social workers, and treatment facilities that are in your ConnectiCare plan’s network. You can schedule a virtual visit with a clinician, review your claims for services, or submit claims.

Register for an account on with your ConnectiCare member ID number. Guest access is also available.

Over the phone

Call 1-888-946-4658 (TTY: 711). You can reach out 24 hours a day, and it’s confidential. Someone can help explain your options.

Virtual visits

You can use to search for a therapist and schedule online sessions using your mobile device or computer. Get confidential help without leaving home. Your plan’s copayments, deductibles, and/or coinsurance apply.

Your benefit summary describes your share of costs for office visits for mental health or substance use disorder treatment. Some services may require preauthorization (or approval before they will be covered) and/or a copayment. Your plan may also have a deductible.

For members of employer plans and individual plans for people under age 65.
