Benefits of Taking Insurance in Your Private Practice:

⭐ More clients than you know what to do with
⭐ No more marketing needed thanks to being listed in insurance company directories
⭐ Steady income stream you can count on
⭐ Ability to easily replace any lost clients with new clients instantaneously
⭐ Develop a waitlist of clients so you’re never out of work
⭐ Help more clients in need who can’t afford self-pay
⭐ Clients book more frequent sessions when they can use their insurance
⭐ Freedom to work from anywhere in the world

Doing your own insurance billing for therapy gives you freedom, allows you to work with the type of clients you really enjoy, and fills your calendar!

And it only takes an extra 30-60 mins. a week! Not as long as you thought right?

Even better, it saves you ten of thousands of dollars a year on hiring private billers.

By not taking insurance you are leaving money on the table every month.

We all know that when we don’t accept insurance our clients come less frequently, maybe once or twice a month instead of weekly. When insurance becomes an option you will quickly see the payoff in your investment. Billing insurance for therapy allows you to serve more clients and gives you a steady stream of income you can depend on.

Pretty soon you have a full roster of clients and all it took was the equivalent of the time it would take to watch one movie!

And the support doesn’t end after you’ve completed the course!

I also offer a monthly membership program with 24/7 support from the experts for less than $40 a month for a limited time. By joining you continue to get hands-on assistance and answers to any questions that arise once you start taking insurance. We will be there to help you every step along the way and have been through many of the twists, turns, and unexpected claim issues you may be worried about. Don’t worry, we have your back!

Hello! I’m so glad you’re here. I believe strongly in taking insurance in private practice. I take insurance, mainly, because I want to be able to help people who can not afford private pay rates and need good quality therapy. Also, I really dislike marketing. 🙂I use to have billers do all of my billing and they took 9% of every claim they filed for me. THEN, I realized they were not collecting the money I was owed from my clients. After some investigation, I was staring at a 10-year-old, $12,000 back-balance report! That was the final straw! I had to learn how to bill insurance on my own.

I spent a lot of time figuring out insurance — first for my brick-and-mortar office and now for my online therapy practice. Through trial and error, I learned everything you need to know to implement insurance billing, either for telehealth or in-person therapy. Thanks to taking insurance I now work 100% online. Doing my own billing gives me the flexibility to travel wherever and whenever I want, and still see my clients.

Now I bill 30-40 client hours per week — all insurance clients!

I built these courses to save you the time and hassle of doing all the research and leg work on your own. This is a start to finish course that helps you seamlessly integrate insurance billing into your private practice. Get all the tools you need to succeed in one place and get up and running faster. This course walks you through from the first steps of credentialing, all the way to becoming a billing master!

If you are even thinking about taking insurance, I encourage you to take this course. For a small investment, you will find that there is a whole untapped market just waiting for you to let them in! And if your goal is to go fully online, just know it is more than possible, it is totally doable! (Check out the photo of me working from the beach below!)

"I’ve taken quite a few courses, but I have to say “WOW”! Highly recommend Kym’s Tolson’s Insurance Billing course for anyone who wants to learn insurance billing for their private practice. This course makes it SO easy! It’s a step by step course, from start to finish, for billing insurance in private practice with a special emphasis on telehealth insurance billing. It answers all of the questions you could possibly ever have about billing. I would have saved myself tons of time and money if I had taken this course before hiring out for insurance billing. Kym is unbelievably friendly, knowledgeable, and approachable. She is the go-to person if you want to have a practice full of very impressed clients because you accept their insurance AND provide telehealth! It's a win all around for everyone. You are awesome Kym!" Moni White


"I love Kym Tolson's Insurance Billing for Private Practice and Telehealth !!!!!!!! HOLY MOLY!!!!! So much information in one place. When I started my online PP after taking Amber Lyda's Step by Step course, I was only going to see self pay clients, but then as I continued to read posts in our online group on FB that therapists were filling up their practices using insurance, I thought I would look into. Taking this course gave me the confidence to pursue insurance. I'm still in the middle of getting credentialed but I have all the information I need from Kym Tolson's course. She provides scripts to use when contacting insurance companies and speaking to clients about their insurance. She provides many tips and tricks that she has used and even her templates for informed consent and PROGRESS notes useful for insurance clients.. I urge you to take this course if you are going to use insurance in your online private practice or are on the fence about using insurance. Money well spent!!!!" Michele Seely, LCSW


"Kym, I was so confused and nervous about all things insurance before your course. I just did my first OON benefits check which resulted ultimately in a happy patient and my full rate. It was not scary at all with your call scripts. I am so glad I can keep returning again and again as I move further in building my practice. Just wanted you to know just how helful you are! Thank you," Jennifer Firard, DBH, LPC, LAC
