New Virtual Mental Health Care Services for Illinois Tech Health Plan Members Launches October 1!

We are excited to announce the launch of a new virtual mental health service provider for eligible Illinois Tech health plan members and their dependents* beginning Saturday, October 1, 2023: Cerebral!

Who is Cerebral? They’re the fastest growing provider of virtual mental health care services. They make it easy to access digital tools or connect with a provider via telehealth and direct messaging. Their virtual care model gives you immediate access to a variety of mental health resources, ensuring you receive the right level of care at just the right time.

Cerebral’s approach is not one-size-fits all. Their short assessment asks a series of questions so they can personalize the best treatment pathway for you:

  • Therapy – Weekly telehealth sessions with a licensed therapist, secure chat, and regular progress tracking
  • Medication + Therapy – Evaluation, diagnosis, and prescription + monthly medication delivery; regular telehealth sessions with a licensed therapist and secure chat; regular progress tracking by prescriber and therapist.

To get started, visit (please note that the link will not be live until midnight on October 1).

If you have questions on this program, or any other questions related to the IIT health plan through Blue Cross Blue Shield, please contact Viktoria Rill at x73353 or, or reach out to Human Resources.

*Cerebral is available to health plan members and dependents aged 18 or older, however, services are not available in all states. Services are subject to applicable copays and/or deductible & coinsurance. For more information, please contact Human Resources.
