Building a Private Practice in 2013: Navigating and Surviving Managed Care, Fiscal Cliffs, Life Coaches, and Sound Byte Cures
Saturday, May 11, 2013, Presenter: Barbara Reichenthal, L.C.S.W., B.C.D.
This three-hour workshop is designed to help clinicians begin building a private practice in this challenging era of Managed Care, fiscal cliffs, high unemployment, and very active competition for the available pool of patients. The focus will be on the mechanics of starting and maintaining a practice, and will include assessing needs for office space, locating an office, determining whether or not to participate on managed care panels, issues in fee settings, marketing, developing a referral network, HIPAA (Privacy Law) requirements, licensing restrictions, and developing collegial and supervisory supports. The clinical dimensions that arise around these issues will also be raised. Special attention will be paid to the “frame issues” that arise where aspects of clinical phenomena get ”lost” in managed care rules and regulations around the frequency of sessions, payments for missed appointments, telephone sessions, and other such matters. Names of insurance panels and information on how to contact them will be provided.
