Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP)

With partial hospitalization programs (Day Treatment), you spend most of your days in the treatment facility, returning home at night. These are great programs for those who don’t qualify for residential or inpatient care. BCBS may cover some or all of this kind of treatment, depending on the plan you have.
