If you require mental health or substance abuse services, we encourage you to initially consult your primary care physician. However, MedStar Family Choice members do not need a referral to obtain mental health or substance abuse services. Members can access these services on their own at any time. 

Please remember that the State of Maryland does require a copayment on some mental health drugs.

For questions about covered services and to locate a provider, please contact Maryland Public Behavioral Health System at the following toll-free numbers.
