Southwest Behavioral Health IPA
Our mission is to create opportunities for behavioral health practitioners to improve the delivery of behavioral health services. We are achieving this by networking, educating, advocating, contracting and collaborating for the benefit of our members, their clients and all behavioral health providers that practice in New Mexico.
Southwest Behavioral Health Independent Practice Association (SWBHIPA) provides behavioral services to New Mexicans is a top priority for our organization. Making ourselves accessible to those looking for behavioral health services is achieved by making sure that providers have the opportunity to join the insurance networks and other grantors of service that New Mexicans use to access health care. We work together to standardize practices, contracts and business relationships, broadening the network of available providers and enhancing the continuum of health care for New Mexicans.
We develop mutually beneficial working relationships between practitioners and insurance companies, helping streamline the contracting and communication processes.
We provide networking and referral opportunities, including a searchable provider directory, allowing the public easy access to our highly qualified behavioral healthcare providers.
We assist providers in understanding the process and the tools that they need to build a successful practice, so providers can continue to thrive in our ever-changing health care environment.
We promote continuing education programs, keeping providers up-to-date.
We enjoy professional camaraderie and support in our collegial behavioral health community.
