We are a consulting firm of Behavioral Health Executives providing full-service consultation to help substance abuse, mental health and other human service providers navigate the behavioral health payer landscape toward becoming fiscally strong, sustainable, integrated, and clinically excellent.  We often begin with an on-site walk-through of your agency and then develop a comprehensive plan with clear strategies and action steps for increased revenue, sustainability and growth-- aligning your work flow, client path, marketing and outreach efforts, information technology, operations, clinical and recovery strategies to support your agency's fiscal strength and prepare for and engage in value based and other emerging reimbursement models. Our portfolio includes small, mid-size and large, nationally prominent providers across the country.  

The behavioral health landscape is ever changing.  Healthcare reform has provided unprecedented challenges and opportunities--particularly for substance abuse and mental health services providers.  We use a proven and very provider friendly process to help identify your agency's strengths and gaps in fiscal and sustainability strategies, guide your work with insurance companies, improve the claims and billing processes, develop integrated services, enhance your marketing and outreach plan, develop clinical and recovery excellence, implement best practices, and provide leading edge training and technical assistance.

For Providers: This is a time of transition and challenge for most behavioral health agencies and their leaders due to healthcare reform, changing managed care criteria, contracting expectations, and integration.  Our team includes highly successful former CEOs and managed care executives to help solidify and enhance your strategic plan in a highly supportive, judgment free way through agency technical assistance and executive coaching.  We especially welcome Mary Fleming, joining us from her leadership position at SAMHSA and Dr. Kris Ericson, from her Executive Director Position at The College for Behavioral Health Leadership.  Please learn more about Mary and Kris in the "About Us" tab.
