SB 221 – Timely Access to Care: Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders

Posted by

The COVID-19 pandemic has produced a huge increase in the demand for the treatment of mental health and substance use disorders. A new law – SB 221 – coming into effect July 1, 2022 aims to strengthen access to mental health services. Your clients may be interested in knowing the details.

Under existing law, California health plans must ensure their network of providers, including doctors, can provide enrollees with an appointment within a specific number of days or hours. Under the new law effective July 1, 2022, this requirement now extends to treatment for mental health and substance use disorders. You can find more background to the new law in a recent CaliforniaHealthline article. The California Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) has also produced a Timely Access to Care fact sheet.

All of the major California carriers provide emotional, behavioral, and mental health benefits programs for members. For an easy-to-use summary of the programs provided by each carrier, download our Carrier Resources Guide

Vision Benefits – Increasingly Wanted by Both Employers and Employees

Posted by

Employers are increasingly looking for vision benefits to be included in the benefits programs they offer to their employees.

According to the newly released 2021 Transitions Opticals Workplace Wellness survey, employees are reporting more digital eyestrain as a result of increased screen time driven by new work routines and habits developed during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, employees have become more concerned about their eye health and are looking more towards eyewear than making adjustments to their electronic devices to help alleviate their eyestrain symptoms.

On average, employees usually take more than three breaks a day to rest their eyes and assuage headaches. And according to the Journal of the American Medical Association, severe headaches can cause a loss in productivity of 3.5 hours of work per week. In fact, every year, employee headaches result in $17 billion in absenteeism, lost productivity and medical costs per the National Headache Foundation.

There’s also increasing awareness by both employers and employees of the wider benefits of regular eye care. A comprehensive eye exam can detect numerous unexpected health conditions, including diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, cancer, multiple sclerosis, thyroid disease and more, which can lead to early diagnosis and less-expensive treatment for employees.

Vision benefits are an excellent option for employers looking to strengthen their benefits programs and improve employee productivity and wellness. Offer your employer groups exceptional vision benefits through VSP, EyeMed and MES from our high-quality carrier partners.

COVID-19 At-Home Testing – Carrier Implementation

Posted by

Carriers are implementing the federal government’s recent mandate of at-home COVID testing. Your employer clients are likely getting questions from employees.

The details of the mandate – which we summarized previously – mean that each carrier is implementing it differently. And implementation challenges mean that the situation next week will likely be different than the situation this week.

Given this, here’s how we recommend your clients respond to questions from employees:

  1. At-home COVID tests are available at no cost directly from the federal government (covidtests.gov). Carriers are not involved in this program.
  2. Carrier coverage of at-home COVID tests: employees and their families should consult the latest carrier guidance. See the links below.
  3. Particular member coverage situations: these are best directed to the carrier’s member services department. The contact information can be found on the back of the member ID card.

We’ll keep you apprised of any major updates to the mandate and carrier implementation.
