Why work with SimiTree Behavioral Health?
We stick to what we know
We do not dilute our company’s knowledge or efforts by attempting to manage practices/bill claims outside of our specialty area – Mental Health. This allows us to offer the best overall service for our current customer base of satisfied Psychologists, LCSWs, Psychiatric MDs/NPs, and LMHCs, as well as, group practices and mental health clinics.
We are available exactly when you need us
Health Assets Management’s normal business hours are 8:30am-5:00pm, Monday-Friday. The team is happy to work with your busy schedule and can accommodate meeting times outside of our regular operating hours.
We support your professional associations
Health Assets is a proud supporter of New York State branches of your professional organizations such as: NYSPA, NASW, and NYMHCA. We work very closely with these, and other professional organizations.
We have the connections
We have made great credentialing, billing, and provider relations contacts with most insurance companies and payers over the years. When we talk, the insurance companies listen. This opens doors for our providers in terms of their specific paneling opportunities, contracts and fee schedules with insurance companies.
We make sure you are in compliance with current HIPAA regulations
We adhere very strictly to the HIPAA/HITECH mandates, pertaining to the protected information that you are communicating to us. If you sign on with us, you are immediately given access to our secure email portal at no extra cost to you. This email encryption system assures that any information which is emailed to us is safe (be it yours or your patients’). The system is password protected and as easy to use as the email system that you are currently using.
We have clinical resources available for our providers
Our founder and current clinical advisor has been in successful private practice for over 30 years, and was a pioneer in Managed Mental Health care. She actually introduced many NY Mental Health providers to the concept of Managed care. She has presented to industry and professional organizations on managed behavioral health, primary care medicine/behavioral health integration, wellness, disease state management, and other topics regarding mental health and the business of mental health. She is available to our staff and our providers to discuss the nuances of practice in a Managed Care environment in NY State.
