Build a Full Fee Practice
Do you want a Full-Fee Private Practice? Tired of dealing with insurance and managed care? Want to take back control of your work?
When I coach therapists to achieve this goal, I often think about our work together as walking a planned, clear path.
Starting Out: Common Challenges
Tied wholly or partly to insurance contracts?
Seeing too few full-fee clients?
Worried about inconsistent referrals?
Feeling trapped and discouraged?
Finding yourself unwilling or unable to change?
Together, we would work to help you develop a plan to take you towards a full-fee practice model.
Take the First Steps
The Plan: Develop an insurance-free or “blended” –some insurance + primarily fee-for-service practice.
With individual coaching, take these steps:
Target right clientele — not bargain shoppers
Make full-fee payment options attractive
Have menu of services to promote choice
Highlight your unique services (niche market)
Be visible within your community
Develop strong flow of referrals from multiple sources
Create practice policies & boundaries
Focus on organization, time management to keep strong
Have comfortable ongoing marketing plan
Articulate and have script for handling $$ objections
Become a “big fish in a small pond”
Educate clients about your value
Help existing clients refer others to you
Use strategies for slow & steady growth
Affiliate with other colleagues for market share
Use “buzz” marketing and other strategies
