Deer Oaks Behavioral Healthcare
Deer Oaks is able to accept capitated contractual arrangements as well as employ psychiatrists through its Texas based 501A corporation, Deer Oaks Behavioral Healthcare. Since Deer Oaks offers statewide geographic coverage through a combination of a staff and network model, Deer Oaks is able to utilize this company to offer the expertise and contracting ability similar to that of larger companies. Consequently, Deer Oaks has the capacity to serve as the exclusive, statewide behavioral health provider for large insurance companies, such as Blue Cross and Blue Shield's HMO Blue throughout Central Texas.
Providing medical oversight, the board of Directors for Deer Oaks Behavioral Healthcare is comprised of a diverse and well-experienced group of physicians. Deer Oaks places great emphasis upon the coordination of clinical care with primary care physicians, neurologists, psychiatrists, pediatricians, internists, and family practice doctors.
Because behavioral health is integrally connected to physical health, and Deer Oaks clinicians consult closely with prescribing physicians on a case by case basis to ascertain the ideal combination of psychotropic and psychotherapeutic interventions. Deer Oaks offers considerable expertise and training in both psychopharmacology and the psychological impact of medical difficulties.
