Jonathan Mueller has been a leader in the autism services field for more than a decade. He’s the Co-CEO/co-founder of Ascend Behavior Partners, a multi-state, independent ABA practice; and of Element RCM, a billing and insurance partner to ABA owners/operators, founded by ABA owners/operators.
Jonathan’s a fierce advocate for families and for building world-class organizational cultures. Ascend received higher team member and family satisfaction scores in each of its reaccreditations through the Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE), while doubling in size every year from 2018-2020. Ascend’s “walk the talk” track record on culture helped make Ascend the first ABA provider to earn BHCOE’s highest 3-year AND Telehealth accreditation (2020). Ascend is a pioneer in integrated service models that support a range of families’ needs: diagnostic testing, ABA treatment, mental health counseling, parent/sibling support groups, and strong care coordination.
He co-founded Element RCM to democratize access to billing and insurance best-practices for the 6,000+ providers in the ABA field. Element RCM is a BHCOE Preferred Provider and partners with ABA practices to provide full-service revenue cycle management. Jonathan’s work at Element is also redefining “Customer Experience” in the ABA field to ensure providers, families and teams are front and center in organizational decision-making.
