Bicycle Health Announces Payor Partnerships with Aetna, United Healthcare, and Blue Cross Blue Shield, Bringing Its Virtual Opioid Addiction Recovery Treatment to Over 75 Million Americans

Today, we’re thrilled to announce new payor partnerships with Aetna, United Healthcare, and Blue Cross Blue Shield – expanding access to our evidence-based opioid use disorder (OUD) treatment to 75 million Americans. Patients covered by select plans will now have access to our multifaceted treatment program, which includes:

  • Medication management provided by a licensed medical provider (MD/NP/PA)
  • Access to licensed behavioral health clinicians (LCSW/LMFT) to deliver individual and group psychotherapy
  • Facilitated online support groups to share their journeys with others, support others, and reflect on ways to achieve emotional growth
  • On-demand access to clinicians to help patients navigate treatment, referrals and life changes as a partner, mentor, and support system

We launched Bicycle Health in 2017 to make effective opioid recovery treatment more accessible. The fact is, most modern recovery experiences are not designed for the vast majority of patient experiences. Many require extensive time spent, prohibiting those with less flexible jobs or caregiving roles from taking time away. Additionally, many Americans simply don’t have access to Medication-Assisted-Treatment (MAT) – a highly effective opioid recovery treatment that reduces withdrawal, cravings, and overdose risk. In fact, 30% percent of rural Americans currently live in a county without a single provider. As a result, many patients can’t and don’t receive the treatment they need. In 2019, just 1.5% of people struggling with substance abuse reported receiving any treatment at all. 

To help more Americans get the treatment they need, we’ve sought to reach as many people with OUD as possible, providing affordable, high-quality telehealth care to make recovery simple, convenient, and effective – safely from home. We’ve expanded to 23 new states, including Florida, Texas, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Illinois. Additionally, in 2021 Bicycle Health launched its telehealth psychotherapy treatment and peer support nationwide, and has forged partnerships with 15 local and national healthcare payers in 2021, including Medicare, United Healthcare, Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield and Medicaid in Michigan and Arizona.  

In the coming months and years, we’re dedicated to bringing our research-backed treatment program to patients in every zip code, championing a model of recovery that fits into the lives of everyday Americans – not the other way around.

Bicycle Health is currently available to patients in Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
