About SBSC

SBSC was founded by Nancy Nager, a psychiatric nurse whose outreach practice provided care for medical and behavioral health patients. She felt that there was something missing: specialists that understood the reimbursement requirements for a psychiatry practice. She needed a company that knew the nuances of medical and mental health care and that could be available every step of the way.

With a 28+ year track record in medical and behavioral health revenue cycle management, her team has been there before and knows how to get you paid, guaranteed.

They also know how to get you credentialed and offer those services to NNPEN NPs on an unbundled basis.
