What Can Employers Do to Support Employees and Access to Care?
Promote Collaborative Care Model (CoCM). Directing patients with mild to moderate mental illness to PCPS that have added nurse practitioners or physician assistants who specialize in psychiatry to their office: 1) time to be dedicated to diagnosis; 2) coordination of care with psychiatrists and other mental health providers.

- Request data from your health plans on use of the CoCm CPT billing codes
- Request that health plans provide ongoing support for provider technical assistance and training in implementing the CoCM
