Please join us for the next Mercer/Burlington PPSIG meeting!
*Lunch Will Be Served*
Topic: Managing Your Practice
We will be having a round table discussion about the practical side of managing a private practice. We will be covering discussion points such as:
>Documentation: What is the shortest HIPAA form I can provide to my clients? What do I need to share with new clients regarding their consent for treatment? Where can I find sample forms that I can use in my practice? How long do I need to keep client files and when the time comes, how do I properly dispose of them?
>Insurance & Billing: How do I decide if I will be in-network or out-of-network? What are some strategies to help me navigate insurance companies? How can I best help my clients figure out their benefits? What is a good billing software program to use? How and when do I raise my fees?
>Screening & Intakes: How do you decide who to accept or not accept in your practice? What type of screening should I conduct before scheduling someone? How much of an assessment should I complete before starting therapy? What are the best ways to refer and collaborate with other professionals (i.e. psychiatrists and physicians)?
>Communication: What are my risks when communicating with clients via email? How much do I want to allow texts in my practice? How do I handle communicating with family members? How do I best create and communicate my policies to clients?
>Marketing: What are the best ways to market my practice? What do I do if I want to create a website? How can I meet other professionals to let them know what I do?
If anyone has helpful information related to these topics, please feel free to bring sample forms, resources, and ideas to our next two meetings!
