by | Oct 31, 2022 | Marketing A Private Practice, Podcast, Private Practice Website

In this episode of the Private Practice Elevation Podcast, you’ll learn about an exciting new platform enabling therapists to help more people by helping their clients pay less.

Many therapists in private practice avoid insurance panels like the plague.

It’s a lot to manage and a headache to handle the forms, check the client’s benefits, and keep up with them.

But marketing your mental health services strictly private-pay-only therapy could likely mean many potential clients passing you by just because they’ve deemed your fee too high.

Mentaya is looking to change that.

They believe “Therapists shouldn’t have to choose between running a successful practice and providing accessible care.”

So how can you attract more private-pay clients by saving them money through out-of-network reimbursement? And how can you do it with no extra work on your end?

Our guest today is Christine Li, founder of Mentaya, and she’s here to answer that very question.

In This Episode, You’ll Learn:

  • The challenges private practitioners face when trying to attract private-pay clients
  • The challenges clients face when trying to find affordable mental health care
  • How Mentaya is benefitting therapists by helping them convert more clients
  • How Mentaya works – from verifying potential clients’ benefits to actually submitting reimbursement claims
  • Simple tools they provide to educate potential clients on how much money they can save through out-of-network reimbursement
