Strategic partnership formed to support members in areas of mental health practice management

Dear NASW-NYS Members,

I am extremely pleased to announce a valuable new benefit for members of the New York State Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers.

NASW-NYS, the largest membership association of professional social workers in New York State, has partnered with Health Assets Management, Inc., a leading billing and practice management organization based in Kingston, N.Y., to offer you support in various areas of mental health practice management.

(L-R: Peter Chernack, DSW, LCSW-R, NASW-NYS Board President, Carmel Gold, LCSW-R, President and CEO of Health Assets Management, Inc., and Ron Bunce, LMSW, NASW-NYS Executive Director)

First announced at our June Board Meeting, this new partnership will combine Health Assets Management Inc.’s expertise in billing and practice management and the Chapter’s commitment to helping social workers meet their professional needs and supporting members in the important work that we do.

These benefits include: 

    • Health Assets Management, Inc. will offer discounted services for NASW-NYS Members


    • Health Assets Management, Inc. will offer a one-time consultation, up to one hour, at no charge for NASW-NYS Members


    • NASW-NYS and Health Assets Management, Inc. will collaborate in the development of potential information and professional materials to advance quality practice and support practitioners


It was after careful thought and consideration that NASW-NYS decided to partner with Health Assets Management, Inc. to offer these valuable benefits. With so many serious mental health policy issues and regulatory considerations, we are confident the expertise of Carmel Gold, LCSW and the staff at Health Assets Management, Inc. will help us stay current with changes in clinical practice and billing management and most importantly: free up your time and energy to spend practicing and serving your clients, and less time dealing with insurance companies and paperwork.

I urge you to take advantage of this valuable opportunity, should you believe it can meet your professional and practice needs.

Do not hesitate to contact the Chapter at or 518-463-4741 if you have any questions regarding this partnership. For more information about Health Assets Management, Inc., please visit or contact
