A professional counseling group practice with a solid reputation is looking to hire a licensed counselor (LMFT, LPC, LISW-Clinical Practice) or Licensed Psychologist with one year of counseling experience with children/teens to work in their Greenville/Mauldin office.
The private counseling group has three office locations in three cities, has a regular steady flow of referrals, and this office in consideration has 5 counselors with a potential of 7. The office is fully staffed with administrative assistants who schedule and assist with clerical duties, billing, and a Spanish interpreter. This office also has a Pediatrician part-time for medication needs.
The licensed counselor will see clients between the ages 0 to 18 (can specify an age range want to work with), will maintain Medicaid standards and paperwork which training will be provided, and provide counseling in an office setting (individual and family therapy). The pay is $45 per billable counseling hour (higher rate is considered for Licensed Psychologists or if you are already credentialed with any Medicaids at this time). Payment of services will be based on when services are paid to the company. Preference is for a counselor who is already credentialed with any of the 6 Medicaids, which the rate of pay would be higher.
This is an independent contractor position, which means you can set your hours, although we prefer the hours be during the office hours of Monday thru Friday 9 to 5. Some later times are more popular and desired. There is a minimum goal of 20 billable hours a week, booking at least 25 hours. Hours beyond the 20 billable hours is a choice of the counselor. No home visits or outside-office visits are required, optional. You will be asked to allow the company to assist with credentialing you with all Medicaids. You will be asked to get Professional Liability Insurance which usually costs around $125 for the year. You will be asked to complete a CAQH database online which is required for credentialing and assistance is given for the credentialing process. You will need to maintain licensure requirements such as CEUs.
