Behavioral Health Association of Providers
Behavioral Health Association of Providers (BHAP) is a national trade membership association that provides education and advocacy for behavioral healthcare providers and related entities.
Membership – Education – Advocacy
Membership provides confidence that providers are informed about compliance with changing legal regulations and industry best practices while reinforcing provider reputation within a network of ethical business practitioners.
Educational and certificate opportunities build skills with higher-level learning designed for providers interested in ethical business practices and regulatory compliance and informing prospective consumers of the dedication the provider exhibits toward honest business practices.
Advocacy efforts encourage industry involvement and self-regulation by informing providers of legislative activity that will promote state and federal rules and regulations that benefit providers and those suffering from behavioral health illnesses.
BHAP Members distinguish themselves from the competition because BHAP is unsurpassed in its knowledge of the law, regulations, compliance, and ethics. BHAP closely monitors legislative activity and participates in lobbying lawmakers to act on behalf of the welfare of healthcare providers and patients, and BHAP alerts Members of actionable developments in proposed laws.
BHAP Members also enjoy Member discounts on educational opportunities, exclusive access to Member Deals, and special discounts offered to BHAP Members by a wide variety of suppliers and vendors.

Because applied knowledge is power, and your reputation is everything.
BHAP knows that behavioral healthcare is different from other healthcare services. However, health insurance companies and regulatory bodies often lump behavioral health services in with other healthcare services. BHAP is helping to distinguish behavioral healthcare by developing self-regulatory standards for the industry, lobbying lawmakers, and educating providers of the importance of self-regulation.
