NOTICE! On October 1, 2017, Florida Blue implemented changes that resulted in many Tier 2 mental health providers leaving the network. With GAU's persistance, university administrators agreed to establish an override to retroactively to cover a number of GAs that were affected because they were already seeing a provider prior to Oct 1st, 2017.
Unfortunately, we have no way of knowing who took the override. GAU wants you to know that if you were impacted by those changes, and received the override, that it will run out on August 15, 2018 when the new contract begins.
Here is a link to current GGC providers for mental health-- look under "Behavioral health--psychology & therapy." Additionally, starting this fall, GatorCare is offering free virtual mental health counseling (text-based and/or Skype) to all GatorGradCare members through TalkSpace. We will have more details soon.
