Starting a private practice can seem like a daunting endeavor, but here at Collective Counseling Solutions, we’re here with you every step of the way to help you set up your practice and connect with the resources and tools that are most efficient and functional for your individualized needs. Whether it’s writing disclosure agreements, choosing an EMR system for record keeping, collecting client payments, or tracking and managing your business expenses, Nick and Eric are here to support you in making important business decisions and provide their insights and feedback from their experience in running their own full-time private practices.
One of our foundational values is increasing accessibility to care for clients wishing to utilize their insurance benefits for mental health care, and Collective Counseling Solutions makes it easy for you to become credentialed with the major commercial insurers in your area. Our credentialing specialist will complete, submit, and track your credentialing applications and will help manage your CAQH profile throughout the review process. We currently work with Aetna, Cigna, Humana, Magellan, United Healthcare/Optum, and your local Blue Cross/Blue Shield plans.
Not only will our billing specialist handle all submissions of insurance claims for your practice, but they will also be available to you for benefit verification for client referrals, ensuring that the client’s plan is active, that you are in-network, and letting you know what to collect when you see the client. Unlike traditional group practice models, Collective Counseling Solutions has the therapist collect copays and deductibles directly from the client at the point of service and deposit that money straight into their business accounts, ensuring that you are not waiting on the insurance claims to process before receiving some income.
Every clinician who joins our collective will have a therapist profile on our website to market their unique practice specialties and areas of focus. Through use of SEO marketing strategies, Collective Counseling Solutions will drive traffic to your profile so clients can easily request an appointment with you for initial consultation. Feel free to check out our Find A Therapist tab to see examples of our clinician profiles!
Referral Stream Development
Collective Counseling Solutions will be working hard within your community to establish consistent referral streams for your private practice to help you grow and sustain your business. Whether it’s educating primary care physicians on how to do routine mental health assessments with their patients, connecting with the heads of social work departments in inpatient hospital settings, or developing relationships with directors of intensive outpatient programs, we’ll be spreading the word about our network of passionate clinicians in private practice who accept insurance and are ready to support prospective clients in establishing routine, outpatient mental health care.
Group Practice Development
For those of you who may aspire to support other clinicians in establishing themselves in a group private practice setting, Collective Counseling Solutions can help you actualize your dream of owning your own counseling collective! We’ll help you in the recruitment process to find clinicians who are a good fit for your group, and we’ll take care of the credentialing, billing, marketing, and referral stream development for your group practice so you can focus more on supporting your therapists and growing your business!
