Highmark, a Blue Cross Blue Shield-affiliated health insurer, will expand access to Freespira‘s digital therapeutic for PTSD, panic disorder, panic attacks and other panic symptoms.

In addition to bringing the treatment to members living in Pennsylvania, Delaware and West Virginia, the agreement will also provide remote coaching on how to use Freespira to those not already receiving support from a behavioral health professional, according to the announcement.

“We are pleased with the clinical and financial outcomes achieved for our health plan members through the use of Freespira,” Demetrios C. Marousis, director of behavioral health at Highmark, said in a statement.

“This breakthrough, drug-free treatment has reduced the impact of symptoms associated with panic attacks, resulting in reduced use of medications and other healthcare costs for symptom management. Freespira adds value to our members’ plans and helps us to create a remarkable health care experience, freeing people to be their best.”
