CBHS helped to save my life this year. If my hospital insurance didn’t cover psychiatric care, I don’t know that I would still be alive. CBHS paid every cent of the very expensive inpatient stay that I had, and as a result I’m currently sitting at home with my husband and two young kids, alive and getting better one day at a time.
Mental health programs and support
Many people find counselling or talking to a professional can help with mental health concerns. Psychology is covered under CBHS Extras. Psychologists can assess, diagnose and treat mental health, behavioural and emotional disorders. The amount of benefits you can claim will depend on your level of cover. Check your policy for details or view CBHS Extras cover.
Mental Health Navigator
Members with CBHS Prestige (Gold) Package can also access our Mental Health Navigator, which offers confidential support from the comfort of your own home. After a virtual meeting with a mental health nurse you’re referred to a psychiatrist and/or clinical psychologist for a detailed assessment via video link. The nurse then guides you to follow-up treatment and supports you for six months. Read more about Mental Health Navigator.
