Preferred Provider Networks

Preferred Provider Organization Networks (PPO)

Behavioral Healthcare Options (BHO) designed its provider networks to offer all available behavioral health resources while respecting patient freedom of choice and recognizing provider autonomy in the care process.

Multi-disciplinary Specialty Providers

BHO has carefully selected and screened network providers throughout the country, covering a wide spectrum of mental health and substance abuse specialties. Whether you need a psychiatrist, a marriage and family therapist, a licensed alcohol and drug counselor or a clinical social worker, our network providers will provide quality care for your members. We also have multi-lingual providers and translators to serve members who need them.

Rigorous Credentialing and Recredentialing Process

Before joining our PPO networks, providers and facilities go through health care industry credentialing standards compliant with the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) standards. Every three years, they are recredentialed under the same or updated NCQA standards. For an overview of our credentialing process, please click here.

Continuous Quality Improvement

In addition to maintaining our industry certifications, we continuously monitor performance on key quality indicators, such as accessibility to care and coordination with medical practitioners to help us improve the quality of care delivered. Our measurement tools are patterned after the NCQA-sponsored Health Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®).

Discounted Fee Schedules

A key to cost-effective delivery of quality services is the selection of seasoned and experienced behavioral health professionals and programs. As a result of BHO's operational abilities and provider-sponsored approach, we are able to contract our PPO networks on a discounted basis, allowing us to maintain high quality networks at rates significantly lower than usual and customary.

Rapid Network Setup

As a proven leader in the behavioral health care field, BHO has vast experience in establishing PPO networks. We can develop additional networks tailored to your service area or population needs in 30 to 60 days. To learn more about our PPO networks, please call 1-800-559-9749.
