On transitioning to private practice…

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.

On the credentialing process…

It's important for me to be able to take insurance and to provide affordable access to care, but being paneled with insurance can be a nightmare. Thankfully, Alma made it so seamless and quick to get credentialed. On top of that, they also make it easy for people to use their benefits and see what they’ll pay for therapy, which is great not only for me but also my clients.

On growing your caseload and your business…

Alma not only simplifies the claims process and provides ongoing business support, but they can also help you increase your overall take home pay. My business benefited from accepting insurance and now I'm able to support a wider range of clients, including those who can't afford to pay for therapy out of pocket.

Frequently asked questions

If you have more questions about how Alma works, you can always reach out to us!

Am I required to take insurance?

We designed Alma’s insurance program to be easy and financially rewarding for our members. To further our mission of simplifying access to affordable mental health care, all new members are required to join our insurance program and get credentialed with at least one of our payer partners — Aetna, Cigna, or Optum.

What if I’m already credentialed with Aetna, Optum, or Cigna?

Members need to be credentialed under Alma’s Tax ID, regardless of their current individual credential status. Once you’ve been credentialed under Alma's Tax ID, you can add your eligible clients to the Alma portal to access enhanced rates for their sessions.

How do I submit claims?

Members can submit claims directly through the Alma portal — just enter the relevant session codes and hit send. Alma takes care of invoicing your clients and collecting copays.

The only time you’ll need to invoice an insurance client directly is to collect payment for a cancellation or missed visit, should that be a part of your practice’s cancellation policy.

Does Alma take a cut of my fee for cash-pay clients?

No. We charge a monthly fee for membership that gives you access to all of Alma’s benefits. The income from your cash-pay clients stays with you.

Can I accept referrals outside of Alma?

Alma is designed to support your entire practice. We’ll help you manage all of your clients — whether they come to you through Alma or not.
