Surprise! The No Surprises Act Now Requires Therapists to Provide a Good Faith Estimate, But Don't Stress... We've Got You Covered!
Let’s face it, whenever the federal government institutes new policies, it can be very frustrating, confusing, and overwhelming for therapists in private practice to know what to do.
We understand why medical professionals and emergency type procedures are required to provide a Good Faith Estimate under the "No Surprises Act".
You or someone you know may have experienced a medical emergency that required hospitalization or expensive procedures that you thought were covered but turned out not to be. Then months later you start to avoid picking up your mail because you find that you were mislead and the medical bills keep piling up!
However, when it comes to mental health professionals in private practice, it is hard to wrap our head around the necessity and feasibility of this policy. It is almost impossible to accurately estimate exactly how many sessions a client will need during the course of treatment at the initial intake call or first time meeting with a prospective client.
As therapists in private practice, we have always been ethically required to be transparent regarding fees. Clients are aware of our rates at the time they consent for services.
For those of you who have purchased our Attorney Approved Paperwork you know that we have clauses in our Consent, Policies & Agreement specifically focused on fees, cancellation policy, etc.
As of January 1, 2022 all medical professional and healthcare professionals are required to provide a Good Faith Estimate for all current and new clients that outlines the expected cost of treatment.
This is required for mental health professionals who provide services to people that are uninsured or people who are insured but chose not to use their insurance benefits to pay for healthcare services (private pay clients).
We know this is a lot to digest and many of you don't know what is required, where to start and how to discuss these policies with your clients out of fear that they will be shocked by total estimate of services.
No worries, we got your back when it comes to all your paperwork needs!

2 Therapists with Entrepreneurial Spirits
We are two South Florida therapists who had a desire to build our dream practices and live our dream lives (just like you).
We wanted to live life on our terms. We would become our own boss, create our own schedules, and work with the clients we are most called to serve. All while being paid well for the work we do.
We both built our individual private practices from the ground up. In short, we did all the wrong things. Through these growing pains, we learned how to build, market, and grow successful private practices.
Once we learned how to do this, we created sustainable and thriving 6-figure, full-fee private practices. The best part, we’ve helped so many therapists (just like you) do the same!
