Financial Assistance

Eagle Valley Behavioral Health does not want finances to prevent anyone from receiving the behavioral health services they want or need. We partner with a variety of organizations to ease financial constraints. Some organizations help with everyday expenses or unexpected medical bills, while others can offer financial assistance to pay for behavioral health services. Explore the options below for more information.

Olivia’s Fund will provide financial assistance to anyone who lives or works in Eagle County to help pay for mental health and/or substance use services for up to six sessions per person per year. This Fund will cover anyone in need of behavioral health services, regardless of insurance or immigration status. To apply for assistance, please visit and complete the Olivia’s Fund patient application in English or Spanish.

Do you have Medicaid?

Vail Health Behavioral Health accepts Medicaid as a health insurance option. Medicaid covers all costs associated with behavioral health services, including outpatient therapy, psychiatry and medication assisted treatment for alcohol and other substances. If you have Medicaid and need behavioral health services, schedule your appointment by calling (970) 455-2489. If you don’t have Medicaid, but would like to see if you could qualify, reach out to our community outreach specialists to schedule an enrollment appointment.
