Presented by Barbara Griswold, LMFT This essential webinar will teach you what you need to know about working with insurance, even if you NEVER join an insurance plan. You'll get the latest information on telehealth billing and coverage, including what needs to be in your documentation. You'll get answer to all your questions about working with insurance, including the latest in telehealth billing and coverage, the pros and cons of joining plans, what out-of-network providers should know, and tips to help you keep new clients when you aren't on their plan. You'll learn how to avoid the costly mistakes therapists make, the critical questions to ask when checking coverage, tips for avoiding denials, and the secret to getting more treatment approved. Learning Objectives At the end of this presentation, attendees will be able to: 1. Describe the different types of insurance plans and define basic insurance concepts, so the therapist might better educate clients about how these impact treatment choices. 2. Name two provider choices regarding involvement with insurance plans, the pros and cons of each, and how to join provider panels. Identify the most common provider mistake that leads to treatment and claim denials. 3. Identify legal, ethical, and insurance coverage issues that relate to providing telehealth across state lines.
