Behavioral Health Services

We believe truly integrated health care involves a radical shift in conceptualizing care and challenges providers to function in ways that often contrast sharply with how they were trained to work.

Understanding the complexity of the health care delivery systems within our local environment is essential in guiding our members to navigate, negotiate and advocate for treatment across all systems. Our goal is to partner with you to bring evidence based behavioral health services to our Members at the right place and at the right time.
