- Crisis services

BHCP has toll-free telephone lines for access to services for members and providers. Utilization Management services are available 8am to 5pm each business day. The phones are answered 24 hours a day by clinicians for urgent member/provider calls.
When a member calls the toll-free number they reach a call center representative who assists them with collecting the demographic information, reviewing benefits (for Martin's Point members) and searching for providers. All requests for pre-certification of inpatient, partial hospital programs, and intensive outpatient programs are handled by the clinical case managers.
