Common Paperwork Questions:
Q: How do I access my paperwork? What is all the hype with the NEW Paperwork Document Generator?
A: You get access to the platform that houses your paperwork + the Paperwork Document Generator.
The Paperwork Document Generator saves you a ton of time! By pre-filling the MOST common areas on the forms (i.e. name, credentials, practice name, address, etc…), the Paperwork Document Generator pre-populates your information into all forms. Once you’re finished, it emails you all of the documents in Word format so you can start using them right away.
Q: Can I use these documents with my EHR?
A: Many of the EHR’s allow for our paperwork to be uploaded to their platform (check with your specific EHR on how to do that). For example, TherapyNotes combined with pdfescape.com allows you to create PDF forms that are fillable so you can easily upload them into the platform.
Q: "What forms do I need for an initial session?"
A: At minimum, you’ll need all clients to complete the HIPAA form; Therapy Consent, Policies and Agreements; Biopsychosocial Intake forms; and a Good Faith Estimate (this form is required for private pay clinicians and clients who chose not to use their insurance.
If you take insurance, clients also need to complete the Assignment of Insurance Benefits; Mental Status Exam and Diagnosis form; and the Treatment Plan (although doing a Treatment Plan is recommended for best practice). Don’t forget to write your Progress Note after the session.
Q: "What is the “No Surprises Act” and what do I need to do about it?"
A: The “No Surprises Act” was implemented January 1, 2022. It impacts private pay clinicians OR clients who chose NOT to use their insurance for therapy services.
Therapists now have to provide a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) to the client prior to services commencing. Don’t worry we’ve got you covered not only with attorney approved paperwork but a podcast and video tutorial explaining how to implement and streamline your GFE process.
Q: "Is the paperwork approved for my specific state?"
A: Great question! We spent 100+ hours of research and writing of laws, rules, and ethics and then worked with 4 different attorneys to ensure our paperwork is up to par.
Ethics and HIPAA are national standards. We have taken the highest ethics of all counseling designations. We believe in going with the highest standards that way you can’t go wrong.
Many laws and ethics overlap, such as confidentiality. The forms are designed to comply with as many states as possible, but you may wish to check with your specific state board or local associations to see if there are any laws known to be “peculiar” to your state.
For example, a “minor” in a few states, when it comes to therapy, is considered under 16. In our Consent, Policies, and Agreements form, we have this area highlighted for you to know the law in your specific state so you can customize it.
Our forms are extremely comprehensive. Our Consent, Policies, and Agreements form is 9 pages long and we have never had any complaints regarding everything that is covered in the forms.
Q: "What happens with the paperwork when there are updates to the laws and ethics?"
A: When there are changes to the laws and ethics, we send out updated forms via email for all those who have purchased, letting them know about the updates and what has changed.
For example when the “No Surprises Act” was implemented, we did all of the hard work for you to bring you the newest required paperwork FOR FREE! Of course, we all need to assure we are doing our own due diligence when it comes to updates in the field, but we love helping you along.
Q: "What if I work with couples or children? Do you have a specific intake form for specific populations like that?"
A: Yes, we offer a specific Biopsychosocial Intake and Client Information for Couples so that clinicians can have each partner complete their forms safely and separately.
We also offer a specific Biopsychosocial Intake and Client Information Form for children so that both the child and parent’s perspectives can be completed prior to the initial counseling session.
Q: Do you offer assistance if we need help with the paperwork? Do you charge for that?
A: This is a great question… “yes” of course we are here to answer any questions you have about the paperwork for FREE!
Q: Does the Therapy Consent, Policies, and Agreements cover policies on social media, collections, cancellations, secret-keeping for couples, what to do in case of emergencies, and more?
A: Yes, it covers all those topics and more! The consent is 8 pages long. Don’t forget, since each therapist’s practice is different, you can customize it to your practice specifications.
Q: Are these forms good for someone who wants to start a private practice, but isn’t quite there yet?
A: Yes, yes, and yes – 110%. If you’re IN private practice or PREPARING to be in private practice, you need paperwork that meets the legal and ethical standards for our profession.
Want to know something cool? We often hear that shortly after people purchase the paperwork, they get a new client. It’s like saying, “I am ready!”
Q: Does the paperwork cover all designations like psychologists, marriage and family therapists, mental health counselors, etc?
A: Yes, we cross-referenced the paperwork across all the designations to ensure it meets the highest standards of the profession.
Q: I only need a few forms, do you sell them individually?
A: Yes, visit our A La Carte Paperwork page for all of the attorney approved private practice paperwork forms. Pick the specific forms you need and update them with your practice specifications so you can start using them today!
Q: Do your forms come translated into different languages?
A: No, at this time our forms are not translated into any different languages. However, you could purchase them and have them translated into whatever language you need! We’ve done the hard part with creating them and having them reviewed by attornies.
Q: I am in need of business paperwork too. Is that something that you offer?
A: Yes, you’re in luck! We have Business Paperwork too. Want to grow your practice, offer podcasts, hire independent contractors, or a virtual assistant? Save time with pre-made business forms and protect yourself and your practice.
Q: I am a supervisor. Do you offer supervision paperwork that I can use for my supervisees?
A: Yes, we do! If you’re supervising Psychologists or Mental Health Professionals, but don’t want to waste time and energy creating paperwork from scratch, we’ve got you covered with our Supervision Paperwork!
Q: I have another question that's not listed above, how can I ask it?
A: If you have a specific question that isn’t answered above, email us at Kate@ThePrivatePracticeStartup.com and we’re happy to answer it!
