The issue

PARTNER

A large health plan based in California provides access to high-quality,

affordable healthcare and support to millions of members. In recent

years, the plan has been focused on improving member access to include

support for mental health and well-being. To help them accomplish this, we

partnered with Solera Health, a leading network of digital and community

point solutions focused on intensive, evidence-based lifestyle, behavioral

and social interventions.

CHALLENGE

The health plan is focused on improving members’ access to mental health

resources while also helping members reduce stress, improve resilience,

and live healthier lives. To scale their mental health and support, they

wanted a solution that ensures members receive the right level of care.

They also understood that a value-based arrangement was key to improved

outcomes and engagement.

Solutions

SOLUTION: HEADSPACE HEALTH AND SOLERA

The health plan turned to Solera and Headspace Health to support members

participating in its mental health program. The Headspace Health model,

which includes Ginger’s behavioral healthcare and support and Headspace’s

mindfulness and meditation platform, engages members in building daily,

positive mental health habits.

MODEL

Headspace Health offers on-demand, human-to-human care provided

by expert coaches, licensed therapists, and psychiatrists, augmented by

engaging self-care content from Ginger and Headspace. After filling out

an initial questionnaire, members are directed to the appropriate — and

low-cost — self-care content in the Headspace app, if needed. Members

who need more support are guided to download the Ginger app and chat

via text with a live coach, available 24/7. For those with more acute needs,

a licensed therapist or psychiatrist can be added to the member’s care

team. With this model, members access care at the right time, right place —

reducing unnecessary utilization of higher-cost care.

The majority of Ginger’s therapists, psychiatrists and coaches are employed,

which allows for quality monitoring, and clinician collaboration protects

access for health plan members and minimizes overlap with the plan’s local

provider network.

The health plan’s mental health program members have access to Ginger

and Headspace on-demand, 24/7. The plan collaborated with Solera and

Headspace Health in a value-based model focused on member engagement

and clinical outcomes to ensure a positive impact for the organization and its

members.

RESULTS: IMPROVED MENTAL HEALTH OUTCOMES AND LOWER-COST CARE

After implementing Ginger and Headspace with navigation through Solera,

the plan saw a notable improvement in mental health program-participating

members. Members demonstrated meaningful engagement with anxiety,

stress, and sleep self-care content, resulting in a positive change in these

key areas. In addition, most members with moderate to severe depression

or anxiety at intake had improved symptoms after engaging with Ginger. By

navigating members to the appropriate resources and care for their acuity

level, the health plan is able to expand access to mental health support at

lower costs.

”My coach is awesome, very informative, positive, and encouraging. I

always look forward to my appointments. She communicates well and sets

expectations so I always know what to expect. I feel like I’m more hopeful

and focused than I’ve been in a long time.

The texting and app are perfect for me because I wanted mental health

support but not the intensive and involved experience of traditional

in-person therapy. Having it for free through my health insurance has

given me a much better opinion of my health insurance provider.”
