Brave Health Director - Financial Planning & Analysis

About Us:
Nearly 1 in 4 people in the U.S. get their healthcare coverage through Medicaid, but nearly two thirds of psychiatrists don’t accept Medicaid. This gap has only grown larger over time, creating a clear opportunity for a model that delivers critical mental health care at scale. Brave is on a mission to expand access to high-quality, affordable behavioral health care through a fully virtual community mental health center model, with a differentiated approach to serving Medicaid beneficiaries. Brave began as a fee-for-service provider to create a presence in the market and gather data, but now, having garnered industry-leading outcomes and deep, differentiated relationships with managed care organizations, we are in the midst of an accelerating transition to value-based care as a primary reimbursement methodology.

We’re looking to evolve our end to end employee experience, and bring onboard a partner to our business to navigate the complexities of our remote population. Ideally, this individual will become a trusted resource that will enable us to continue to scale with high compassion and kindness across all of our employees.
