For insurance payers that want to remove barriers to accessible, timely, cost-effective mental healthcare, our end-to-end platform will help you reduce claims, costs, and differentiate your offerings.

We understand your challenges:

Rapidly Escalating Costs — as underwriting becomes less profitable due to the rise in the number and cost of mental health claims

Differentiation — within the homogenization of benefit programs available from all insurance providers today

Overwhelming Caseloads — from increasing number of people going on leave and staying on LTD for extended periods of time

Mental Health Co-morbidity — the increase in cases that have mental illness as a primary, secondary, or tertiary diagnosis

Ensuring Efficacy and Standardization of Treatment — and delivering on the responsibility to claimants and their employer or member organization that the programs offered are having a positive impact

Geographic Challenges & Low EAP Utilization — with the rise of remote workforces and stagnation of EAP usage, delivering care to employees in remote or less populated areas

Insurance companies choose Starling Minds as a cost-effective mental health solution for reducing claims costs, improving services, and differentiating their offerings.

I’m so grateful this program is offered online as I cannot drive. Being able to access CBT support in the comfort of my own home has been lifechanging for me. I like the assessment from session 4 and want to continue using it to monitor my mental health. I like the strategies/tools. I really appreciate this little community and I truly feel less alone in my journey.
