Are you considering going into private practice? Or are you looking to improve the business functions of your current practice? This workshop will address all of the questions you might have at this juncture in your professional career including setting up the practice, using collateral contacts, deciding upon specialty practice areas, maintaining good records, the “business” of billing, changes in billing and developing both a clinical plan and a business plan. Learn about claims forms and filings, billing, communicating with insurance companies, and balancing the clinical side of your business with the revenue side. An ample opportunity for Q & A to address your questions will follow the formal presentation.

Presented by private practitioner, Patricia Carl-Stannard, LCSW, ACSW with 18 years of private practice experience and Ginna Swan, a claim specialist and sole proprietor of Med-Direct, LLC, serving mental health offices in Connecticut and New Jersey.
