What providers are saying about going in-network with Alma

Joining Alma has been the best thing to happen for my career, hands down. I went from working full-time at a hospital to full-time private practice in a matter of weeks. I think the general impression in the therapy community is that taking insurance is a headache and not worth it, but I have had the opposite experience.

Joining Alma’s insurance program is a great way to start your practice and build it the way you want. Within a day of being credentialed, I had countless requests for psychotherapy consultations. I have been able to fill my entire caseload in less than a month and still leave room for some out-of-network clients. Plus, the payback rate is reasonable and the paperwork minimal. I am so glad I joined.

Alma not only simplifies the claims process and provides business support, but has also negotiated better reimbursement rates. This enables my business to benefit from accepting insurance while also supporting a wider range of clients, including those who may not be able to afford to pay for therapy out-of-pocket.
