Effective January 1, 2014, Cenpatico Behavioral Health, LLC, (Cenpatico) has expanded our services to manage the behavioral health benefits, authorization processes, utilization management and claims payment for MassHealth CarePlus members enrolled with CeltiCare Health Plan of Massachusetts, Inc. It is the goal of Cenpatico to continue to partner with local providers to make the transition as efficient as possible.
Cenpatico has adopted a “transition period” beginning on the date of each member’s eligibility for up to 30 days after. What this means is that you can continue providing covered behavioral health services, for up to 30 days, to any CeltiCare Health member already in your care prior to their effective date with CeltiCare, regardless of your participation status in Cenpatico’s Massachusetts provider network.
