UMNPA HEALTH CARE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
UMNPA health care assistance is designed to provide adequate health insurance coverage for veterans so they can receive the much needed mental health care necessary to reacclimatize back into society.
Cost of mental health care as well as the challenges and opportunities to improve access to high-quality health care for this population has been a long time problem.
What has been found on prevalence of mental health conditions and TBI are that current rates of exposure to combat trauma and mental health conditions among returning veterans are relatively high. Groups at higher risk for these conditions include Army soldiers and Marines, those serving in military reserve forces, discharged soldiers, retired military, enlisted personnel, women, and Hispanics. Also at risk are personnel serving 12- to 15-month deployments and those with more extensive exposure to combat trauma. There is a gap in care for PTSD and TBI. The need for treatment is high, but few receive adequate services because of concerns that care would not be kept confidential and would preclude recipients from future job assignments.
Most veterans do not even know there is a problem.
According to RAND, at least 20% of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans have PTSD and/or Depression.
50% of those with PTSD do not seek treatment
A key finding is that PTSD, major depression, and TBI can have long-term, cascading consequences. These consequences include substance abuse, suicide attempts, unhealthy behaviors, physical health problems, mortality, diminished productivity, and unemployment.
UMNPA 501c3 non-profit gives veterans a path to confidential behavioral health treatment in private placement facilities that allows them to receive mental health care without the fear of treatment affecting their future.
Accessing Behavioral Health / substance abuse treatment can be hard for veterans. Most of the time the insurance provided by conventional programs is not accepted by behavioral health clinics. Which is why UMNPA makes it easy for them to obtain the insurance they need to seek the treatment they deserve.
