Our Values

We believe mental health is a human right

Mental wellness isn’t a nice-to-have. We want to create a world where all people can seek care regardless of cost.

Controlling cost is key to improving access

The system is broken. Confusing rules and unreliable reimbursements drive patients from care and therapists from insurance. But private pay is inaccessible to many.

Solutions should help both therapists and patients 

We know that tools built for patients don't always help clinicians, and vice versa. Nirvana creates billing solutions that work for both – so you both can achieve your goals.

Our Team Comes From The Leading edge of medical billing and technology
