Behavioral Health Integration Program (BHIP)

The Behavioral Health Integration Program (BHIP) is a team-based approach to managing depression and anxiety in the primary care setting, and is based on the collaborative care model. Referrals to BHIP are made by your primary care provider. BHIP is currently available at the following clinics: Kent Clinic, Covington Clinic South, Highlands Clinic, Fairwood Clinic, Cascade Clinic, and Newcastle Clinic.

If you are referred to the BHIP program by your primary care provider, s/he will continue to oversee your care and prescribe medications as indicated in consultation with the BHIP psychiatrist and Behavioral Health Specialist. The Behavioral Health Specialist will meet with you at the primary care clinic, will work closely with your primary care provider, and may provide short-term counseling or refer you to resources, depending on your needs.

If you have received a referral to BHIP from your primary care provider, you can call 425-690-7592 to check insurance coverage and schedule an appointment.
