Have you ever wondered how insurance companies are impacting the mental health industry? 

In this episode, I dive into the influence of insurance companies in group practice. Insurance companies are moving away from paying based on the duration of therapy sessions and towards paying for the quality of care provided. This shift could potentially result in lower reimbursements for therapists, unless we advocate for how values-based care should be reimbursed. Additionally, I discuss the trend of insurance companies owning group practices, which gives them control over therapist compensation and allows them to increase profits. It's important for us as mental health practitioners to understand and adapt to these changes in order to thrive in the evolving landscape. Join me to learn more about:

  • The shift from duration-based reimbursement to values-based reimbursement by insurance companies
  • The importance of advocating for fair reimbursement rates and how measurement of care should be based
  • The trend of insurance companies owning group practices and its impact on therapist compensation

As group practice owners, it's crucial for us to stay informed and proactive in navigating the influence of insurance companies in group practice. By understanding these changes and advocating for fair reimbursement, we can continue to provide quality care to our clients while also ensuring the sustainability of our practices.
