Hear About Some the Pros & Cons when Considering Working with Insurance as a Mental Health Clinician

Working as an in-network provider as a mental health professional can come with a lot of presumptions, fears, and sometimes unfounded biases. Depending on the populations you work with, how long you have worked as a provider, or even your geographic location, being paneled with 3rd-party payers can feel like an automatic necessity, or something that should be avoided.

The truth is, like we often say as therapists, is that "it depends."

Join us for this time with 2 group practice owners, one with an insurance-based practice and who runs a cash-based practice, and hear about some of the core dynamics that you should consider for your own practice. Even if you cannot make the live time for the webinar, still register and you will get access to the replay.

Questions that will be explored in this webinar include:

When to consider paneling with 3rd-party payers

Looking at the big factors to consider

Common biases related to insurance work with practices.

The finances of insurance work are always changing, here how.

Thinking through workflow in insurance-based practice

From collecting co-pays to following up on your filings

Solid financial planning for insurance practices

The importance of knowing your numbers in any sort of practice
