CO APCD Claims Volume Data Show Continued Increase in Behavioral Health Services

Share this:

As the CO APCD nears almost one billion total claims, the latest version of the interactive Insights Dashboard shows a steady rise in behavioral health services since 2013. The Insights Dashboard helps users understand the contents of the CO APCD and how it has changed over time by population, payer, claim type and claim volume. Additional information on what percentage of the insured population is represented in each county and other important coverage information is also included.

The new dashboard shows that claims for behavioral health services have climbed steadily since 2013 across all payer types. Behavioral health services per person in the database nearly doubled from 2013 to 2020, going from 1.2 claims per person to 2.3. For the last five years, claims with a behavioral health service have increased by 6% or more per year, and in 2020, there were nearly nine million claims, an increase of 155% from 2013. During the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, there were approximately 1.2 million claims for Coloradans receiving one or more behavioral health services.

New to the dashboard with this update is the inclusion of individual, self-insured and employer size breakouts for those with commercial coverage by county.
