IBM STARTS PSYCHIATRIC HEALTH PROGRAMME FOR STAFF

By CBR Staff Writer

The growing demand for psychiatric treatment is having an impact even in IBM, and it has chosen a company, American Psychmanagement, to deal with its employee-health care programme: the Wall Street Journal says that there is a move across corporate America to separate mental health and drug-taking problems from other employee benefits, and the size of IBM means that its workforce tends to mirror all the ills that plague contemporary society; the new provisions are extremely generous, and IBM will pay 100% of the costs of in-patient hospitalisation if employees use a an IBM-recommended pyschiatrist, and 80% of costs for up to 90 days a year if they choose their own; the company will also pay 80% of outpatient care up to $15,000, and 50% up to $25,000; American Psychmanagement says it has a unit of 100 staff devoted entirely to IBM.
