Jackson House is Making Residential Mental Health Treatment More Accessible
Company Provides In-network Coverage for Many California Health Insurance Plans

LA MESA, CA – The ongoing coronavirus pandemic is taking a toll on American’s mental health. A recent poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation found, since the outbreak started, 56 percent of adults in the U.S. have experienced negative effects on their mental health. With the need for mental health services growing, Jackson House, a voluntary, residential treatment program with several locations across southern California, is working to remove barriers and make treatment more accessible.

“Our mental health is just as important as our physical health,” said Dr. Bruce Figuered, President of Jackson House. “While stress is heightened for everyone at the moment, it has been particularly difficult for individuals who do not have healthy coping skills or suffer from underlying mental health conditions. If you feel like you’ve been struggling, it is important to reach out for help.”

Unfortunately, a study by the National Alliance on Mental Illness revealed many Americans have trouble finding access to mental healthcare services. High out-of-pocket costs, lack of in-network treatment options and a provider shortage were cited as key barriers in the report. Jackson House has actively been working with California health insurance companies to remove some of these obstacles and make residential mental health treatment more accessible.

Cost is one of the biggest concerns for individuals seeking treatment. To make mental healthcare more affordable for Californians, Jackson House has worked to become in-network with 11 different health insurance plans, including Aetna, Beacon/Value Options, Blue Cross/Anthem, Blue Shield/Magellan, Cigna, Healthnet/MHN, Humana and Kaiser.

“We do not want money to be the reason someone doesn’t reach out for help,” said Dr. Figuered. “Mental illness is treatable and people should not have to suffer needlessly. With the right treatment plan, support and development of new life skills, our team believes everyone can improve their quality of life.”

Dr. Figuered encourages individuals who are worried about the cost of mental health treatment to call their insurance company directly to ask about in-network options and understand the cost of care. Insurance companies can also provide their clients with a list of providers in their area. Californians can also call Jackson House directly if they are interested in seeking residential mental health treatment.


Jackson House was built to fill a critical gap in the healthcare system. The company recognized there were outpatient treatment options and locked, inpatient facilities but nothing in the middle. Jackson House allows people to receive around the clock mental health treatment voluntarily, on their own terms. The program is built around evidenced based care and customized to meet each client’s unique needs.
