We believe this timely offering coupled with the rising awareness of mental health issues and health plans’ appetite, positions CATS well in the near future. CATS’ success with identifying, engaging appropriate members and delivering ROI (we estimate 2.8x) has opened the doors at the largest health plans (seven of eight top health plans). Our checks suggest likelihood of expansions across its customer base as they evaluate ROI and meet actuarial hurdles.
