Company Overview

University Behavioral Associates (UBA) is an innovative behavioral management services organization. Founded and affiliated with the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center, UBA has access to world leaders in behavioral healthcare, behavioral healthcare information technology, academic psychiatry and clinical research.

Established in 1995, the company’s comprehensive services are designed to manage and improve the process, quality, and continuity of behavioral healthcare while successfully managing behavioral expenses and improving patient outcomes. UBA is one of the first provider-driven behavioral healthcare management companies able to successfully manage the delivery of high-quality clinical services at all levels of mental health and substance abuse care (in coordination with medical care). UBA is a not-for-profit corporation in New York State.

Mission
UBA is dedicated to helping consumers, providers, and purchasers manage and improve the quality and continuity of behavioral healthcare while successfully managing costs and improving outcomes. Our solutions are designed to enhance the relationship between patients and behavioral healthcare providers; help patients access needed mental health and substance abuse treatment; assist clients with other needed social services and benefits; outreach to patients and their families; assist clients with employment services to maintain self-sufficiency; and provide a range of wellness services to improve family stability and child welfare, including relationship and parenting education.

UBA is committed to educating the public, patients, and families about psychiatric and substance use disorders. We want to help overcome biases and pre-conceptions that are sometimes associated with emotional and behavioral problems. The stigma of mental illness is an unfortunate and unnecessary obstacle to obtaining needed care. Most psychiatric conditions, like most other medical conditions, are chronic, relapsing disorders that people can cope with, and if treated, will not interfere with people leading happy and productive lives.
