If you are caring for a Blue Shield member who could benefit from these services, encourage them to enroll in Blue Shield’s Maven Maternity Program.

Along with Blue Shield’s Maven Maternity Program, you also can refer members as needed to their primary care provider or OB-GYN specialist and Blue Shield care management for physical health support and to Magellan for additional mental health support. Visit the Blue Shield website, or let members know they can call 1-877-455-6777. 

Help members access care by updating your specialties with Magellan.

With the increased attention to this important area of care, it’s likely that more members will begin seeking care for maternal mental health conditions. If you specialize in maternal mental health, remember you can include your specialties when making updates to your practice information on our website.
