Summary of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Benefits

Uprise Wallet Card

Mental health coverage and substance abuse treatment are available to employees, dependents, and retirees who are covered under the Auburn Medical Plan.

While our EAP addresses everyday living problems, mental health benefits address clinical issues such as depression, anxiety, abuse, childhood trauma, substance abuse and other serious conditions.

Uprise Health assists employees and families by identifying and working through conditions that may be a focus of clinical attention such as:

  • Adjustment disorder


  • Anxiety disorders

  • Autism

  • Depression and mood disorders

  • Impulse control disorders

  • Schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders

  • Substance abuse disorders

Inpatient and Outpatient

  • Number of days determined by medical necessity

  • Co-pay same as medical plan

Transition of Care

For transition of care, Uprise Health offers one to three visits based on the intensity of services and the severity of the patient’s illness for those individuals currently receiving clinical behavioral healthcare treatment. 

Call 800-925-5327 or visit the Uprise website (Company Code: AUBURN) for more information.
