Work as an online clinician with CarePaths
CarePaths is seeking licensed clinicians to join our network. CarePaths is launching a new online therapy platform which uses text messaging, as well as audio and teletherapy modalities. It is similar to Talkspace and BetterHelp, two well-known online therapy platforms.
Benefits include referrals and a new stream of revenue, flexibility in where and when you work, a way to fill unused/open hours, and access to a broad range of clients who were previously inaccessible. Clinicians do not need to worry about acquiring referrals, billing, operations, or marketing. The CarePaths platform will manage everything but the counseling.
The platform works like this: A prospective client will sign up at the CarePaths online website. The client will pay CarePaths a weekly or monthly subscription fee for unlimited messaging therapy. Teletherapy is available as an additional service that the client can request, and it is billed separately. Clients are matched with a clinician based on the following information: State where you are licensed and your specialties. Clients will download a smartphone app and use the app (or browser) for messaging therapy or teletherapy.
Messaging therapy is mainly asynchronous. Clients will be able to message you 24/7. Clinicians respond once per day at times that work for them and their clients – (5) days a week. The cost for the client is $40.00/week or $159/month. We pay clinicians about 80% of fees collected, less the credit card fee. This comes to $30.77 for week-to-week subscriptions and $122.29 for monthly (4) week subscriptions. Other platforms are compensating 50% or less of the fees collected. Clinicians and clients can also arrange teletherapy sessions as needed. The cost for the client for teletherapy services is $49 for a 25-minute session of which $39.20 is paid to the clinician (less credit card fees). Credit card fees will be 2.9% + .30 cents transaction.
We are offering the client an initial trial week at a discounted fee of $25 for messaging therapy. Clinicians will be compensated the full $25 for that week, less credit card fees.
Clinicians who participate with CarePaths are independent practitioners, not employees of CarePaths. Requirements to join the network are: a license to practice counseling in one or more states; malpractice insurance; reliable internet connection; and excellent writing skills.
We intend to limit the size of the network to ensure that participating clinicians have a sufficient referral base to make this an attractive option to complement your practice. CarePaths will provide a training manual and other support materials for participating clinicians.
