Find Help for Mental Health, Drugs, or Alcohol if You’re on Delaware's Medicaid Program or Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
If you're part of Delaware's Medicaid program, you must choose a primary care provider (PCP) who, along with a Managed Care Organization (MCO), will provide or arrange for all your preventive care and medical needs.
You can search the provider directory for the type of health care professional you would like to see. Learn more about the types of providers. Contact the provider to see if they are enrolled in Medicaid program and accepting new patients before your first visit.
If your child is part of CHIP, it is managed by two Managed Care plans. You can search for providers within your specific Managed Care health plan. Your child must see providers within their health plan's network.
- If your child is part of AmeriHealth Caritas, you can search their provider directory for behavioral health providers you want your child to see.
- If your child is part of Highmark Health Options, you can search their provider directory for behavioral health providers you want your child to see.
You can also search the Department of Services for Children, Youth & Their Families (DSCYF) prevention and early intervention services in Delaware.
