Outpatient Psychiatric Practice Opportunity at Santa Barbara Behavioral Health (SBBH)
You can step into a successful outpatient practice in Santa Barbara, maximizing the benefits of a rewarding independent psychiatric practice, while minimizing the administrative demands.

SBBH psychiatrists have:

• High compensation
• A continuous flow of patient referrals
• Extensive practice management and support provided by highly skilled and caring front- and back-office support staff and administrators
• Comfortable, fully furnished offices with HIPAA secure computers,networks, applications and broadband internet access

SBBH creates, builds, and manages the practices of psychiatrists and allied behavioral health professionals, now for almost 25 years. We contract with the major insurance payers, ensuring a turn-key full-time practice (or less if the provider so desires), a constant flow of referrals to the providers, a substantial and predictable monthly income, and all the support services possible.

Psychiatrists at SBBH are independent contractors and have autonomous practices, with each determining their own style of practice, hours and time off. SBBH provides guaranteed compensation for services rendered for SBBH contracted insurances, regardless of insurance and patient collections, and withholds an administrative fee for private pay services. It handles all front and back office tasks, including contracting with payers, credentialing of the psychiatrists with the various payers, verifying insurance eligibility and benefits, claims management, setting patient appointments, initiating patient appointment reminders, interfacing with pharmacies, and providing a buffer and intermediary between the psychiatrist, the insurance companies and other interested parties. SBBH also acts as a liaison between the psychiatrists and their patients, referral sources and others involved in their patients’ care, and provides, as well, a first line of emergency call.

SBBH is one of the primary providers of psychiatric services on the California Central Coast and, through our reputation, has become the recipient of referrals for care from the local medical community, hospitals, employers and their HR personnel, and from the insurance companies. As a result of continuous growth, of our current access time to initial psychiatrist consultations and to ongoing psychiatric treatment at SBBH, we are again ready to add additional psychiatrist access. We seek adult and/or child & adolescent psychiatrists.

Up to five and a half days per week is presently possible for new providers, as SBBH is open Saturday mornings in addition to regular week day hours. Compensation is high.
We have a wonderful group of providers and support staff, presently with eight psychiatrists, six psychologists, three masters level clinicians, and nine front and back office support staff. The support staff and Co-Directors provide an unusually high level of practice management and support to the psychiatrists, enabling them to focus on their clinical work, while tailoring their practices to maximize meeting their own needs and desires.
