Olivia’s Fund will provide financial assistance to anyone who lives or works in Eagle County to help pay for mental health and/or substance use services for up to six sessions per person per year.
Unfortunately, we are unable to cover costs for medication or inpatient services at this time. The scholarship funds are provided by generous private donors and foundations who wish to support behavioral health services but recognize that many individuals cannot obtain those services because of financial barriers.
Olivia’s Fund will cover anyone in need of behavioral health services, regardless of insurance or immigration status. Medicaid clients are not eligible for scholarships, as Medicaid will cover the full cost of behavioral health services.
The EVBH therapist directory provides a list of behavioral health clinicians in the Valley who accept Medicaid.

Olivia’s Fund will encourage behavioral health providers to utilize the patient’s insurance when possible.

All providers will be encouraged to discuss alternate and sustainable funding options with patients if they feel that the patient could benefit from more than the six sessions covered by the Olivia’s Fund scholarship.
Providers outside of the Olivia’s Fund “network” can join at any time. If a patient wants to see a provider who is not currently credentialed with Olivia’s Fund, the provider can contact EVBH to be included in our network of providers. The provider must be credentialed in the Olivia’s Fund system before the patient can use the scholarship and the provider can get paid.
