What providers are saying about Alma
Do all members have to take insurance at Alma?
No, all members have autonomy over their practice, including which payment options they accept and which clients they choose to see.
Does it cost extra to take advantage of going in-network with Alma?
No, as an Alma member you can opt in to this program for no additional cost.
Would I be required to see a certain number of insurance clients?
No, you get to decide how many insurance clients you take! Our mission is to simplify access to care. Even one insurance client is enough to make a difference.
How quickly can I start seeing insurance clients?
We work with our payer partners to expedite the credentialing process so you can begin seeing insurance clients within 30 days of completing your CAQH application.
I'm already credentialed with one of your insurance partners. Can I still join Alma?
Yes, you can still join Alma and get all of our exclusive insurance benefits, including enhanced payback rates and offloading paperwork to our team for both new and existing clients.
How much will I earn per session?
Payback rates are determined by your degree. Get in touch with us to learn more.
