CVS Health is expanding its efforts to help people manage worry and anxiety 24-7, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The company is making Big Health's Daylight digital therapeutic for worry and anxiety available to employers and other plan sponsors through CVS Caremark’s Point Solutions Management program. Together, Sleepio and Daylight address the 24-hour problem of mental health, spanning poor sleep, worry and anxiety, with clinically proven, instantly accessible digital therapeutics.

“Mental health is a 24-hour problem. With more people isolated at home and with telehealth providers overwhelmed, the need for access to evidence-based mental health support has never been greater," said Peter Hames, co-founder and CEO of Big Health. “We are pleased to expand our collaboration with CVS Health, by offering Sleepio and now Daylight to CVS Health PBM clients and their members.”

"Employers and other plan sponsors are increasingly looking for innovative tools to help people manage worry and anxiety, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Sree Chaguturu, chief medical officer at CVS Caremark. “Big Health’s commitment to clinical evaluation and research aligns with our focus on helping our clients include clinically effective digital point solutions as part of their benefits packages.”

Point Solutions Management is a full-service offering that leverages the CVS Caremark PBM infrastructure to enable plan sponsors to more efficiently administer apps, online trackers and other digital point solutions that support their members’ health and well-being. CVS Health said that each solution undergoes a rigorous evaluation process to ensure that they support clinical outcomes while minimizing plan costs.

Offering the Big Health solutions via the CVS Health Point Solutions Management program also simplifies billing and reimbursement for plan sponsors and their members.
