Lifestyle Modification to Improve Mental Health and Decrease Employer Healthcare Costs
ViCare® enables individuals to sustainably relieve anxiety, depression, and stress, reducing the cost of healthcare services for themselves and their employers.
What is ViCare®?
ViCare® is a program to enable lifestyle change and sustainably treat serious anxiety, depression, and stress. It is provided by highly trained therapists who use proven techniques and technology and form close relationships with Enrollees.
Our ViCare® solution enables employees to sustainably relieve their behavioral issues.
Unlike web and mobile self-help programs, we use real therapists that we call ViCare® Guides to form relationships with those enrolled in our programs. The Guides use scientifically validated therapies to enable sustainable lifestyle changes which are the only reliable solutions to these behavioral health issues.
ViCare® is frictionless, employees do not need pre-approval and there are no co-pays or deductibles. Uniquely, we are able to measure success both in terms of cost savings through lower use of healthcare services and greater potential for productivity.
Why Does ViCare® Work?
ViCare® Guides engage members at the first encounter and keep them engaged more than 90% of the time.
There is no pre-authorization, no co-pay or deductible, and first appointment wait times are less than two weeks.
ViScore tracks and measures progress.
Unlike web-based programs, ViCare® is based on scientifically-proven effective systems.
ViCare® is a Solution for Both Employers and Individuals
Poor Mental Health Impacts Employee Satisfaction and Productivity.

- They’re not sure to what extent they have the problem, or
- They don’t know that there is a solution, or
- They think their health plan covers it.
- A complimentary, HIPAA-compliant claims analysis showing levels of employee mental health issues
- A proven solution to the problem
- Demonstration that the health plan is not solving the problem
