Carelon Behavioral Health does not discriminate against particular providers for the participation, reimbursement, or indemnification of any provider who is acting within the scope of their license or certification under applicable State law, solely on the basis of that license or certification. Carelon Behavioral Health does not discriminate against particular providers that serve high-risk populations or specialize in conditions that require costly treatment. Should a particular provider be declined to participate in the network, they will receive a written notice of the reason for the decision.
