Health Management (PMHM)
nation’s largest employers for more than 25 years.
PMHM’s system increases treatment quality while lowering costs.
Professionally Guided CareSM follows specific principles to deliver these results:
Effective therapy helps covered members resolve distressing symptoms and become more independent and self-sustaining.
The first rule of the therapist should be to “do no harm.” The covered member deserves a therapeutic approach that is sound and supported by clinical research.
Too much treatment is often harmful because it fosters the patient’s insecurity and dependency.
There is an optimal setting, amount and frequency of treatment for a given condition. It is the responsibility of the treating provider and PMHM’s Staff Psychologist to ensure that the member receives appropriate care.
Cognitive behavioral therapy by a well-trained professional is the most effective treatment for anxiety, depression, marital/family issues, substance abuse and work-related problems.
Preferred Mental Health Management (PMHM) is committed to providing the highest-quality behavioral health care to every covered member. Based upon its covered member and provider survey and outcomes data, PMHM is achieving this objective.In addition to helping patients reach their treatment goals, however, PMHM’s program produces outstanding savings for its employer clients.
Savings are based on billed claims vs. actual paid claims. Savings stem from provider & hospital discounts and review of claims for clinical necessity.
