One person, one family, one community at a time. Every individual and every family has a unique road to wellness, health, and hope. Optum manages outpatient behavioral health benefits for Idaho Medicaid members. It is our commitment to help transform Idaho’s behavioral health outpatient system by focusing on helping people reach recovery in their own health journey.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 23% of U.S. women and 14% of U.S. men will experience physical violence by a partner during their lifetime.* The need for education and awareness of these disturbing facts continues. Optum Idaho's Hello Idaho! campaign is designed to address isolation and to stay connected. Say “Hello,” to begin the conversation about how to stop the cycle of domestic violence, and where to find help if you or someone you know is trying to leave a violent relationship.

To learn more about how you can stop domestic violence, visit the Idaho Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault at idvsa.org or the National Council Against Domestic Violence at NCADV.org.
Connect. Reach Out. Say Hello!
By working collaboratively with the State of Idaho to implement the goals set forth by the State and to deliver quality, efficient and effective changes, we will achieve better outcomes for Idahoans and transform the behavioral health system.
