CBHNP Begins New Era in Pennsylvania as PerformCare

AmeriHealth Caritas' Behavioral Health Care Management Organization to Operate Under One Name


October 01, 2013
Harrisburg, PA

Community Behavioral HealthCare Network of Pennsylvania (CBHNP), a NCQA-accredited managed behavioral health care organization for Medicaid and part of the AmeriHealth Caritas Family of Companies, announced today that it is re-branding in Pennsylvania as PerformCare, effective today.

CBHNP currently does business in all markets outside of Pennsylvania as PerformCare.

"Today, we begin a new era as, simply, PerformCare, everywhere we do business," said Michael Golinkoff, Ph.D., M.B.A., president and CEO of CBHNP/PerformCare. "While our name has changed in Pennsylvania, we're still the same company that one million people living in four states and the District of Columbia have come to trust. It's a privilege to be able to inspire recovery, hope and healing in those most in need." 

Founded in 1994 by a group of leading behavioral health professions, CBHNP/PerformCare currently delivers nationally-recognized behavioral health care services to more than 1 million members in Indiana, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and South Carolina. Its provider network includes more than 570 agencies and organizations, more than 1,700 practitioners and more than 2,300 treatment site locations.

AmeriHealth Caritas acquired CBHNP in January 2008. It later expanded to other states under the PerformCare name and now serves the private and public health care markets in the District of Columbia, Indiana, New Jersey and South Carolina.

CBHNP members and network providers do not need to take any action in light of this change. Members and providers with any questions can contact PerformCare toll-free at 1-888-700-7370 or visit www.performcarepa.org.
