Benefits of Your SonderMind Partnership

min read

Therapists are drawn to SonderMind for dozens of reasons. For many, it’s the ability to build a successful base of insurance clients. Others are attracted by the security of Guaranteed Pay, however, there are even more advantages in your SonderMind partnership than you may realize! Check out our list below to make sure you’re optimizing your partnership and success in private practice.

It costs nothing to join the SonderMind Provider Network (SPN).

You get free, professional marketing to clients. As a provider within the SPN, you are automatically going to get matched with clients. All you have to do is complete onboarding, create a profile for potential clients to see, pass our credentialing committee standards, and then our team matches clients to you based on your availability, location, type of sessions offered, and specialties.

We do all the insurance credentialing.
We credential you with all applicable health benefit plans & EAP’s (view here)

  • Our credentialing team does the work to submit all applications to payors to obtain your in-network status. (Some insurances you’ll be able to accept immediately post-approval into the SPN, and others may take 90-120 days from that point).
  • Allow your existing cash-pay clients to use their insurance benefits or allow SonderMind to take on insurance billing for your existing insurance-clients

You capitalize on the benefits of being credentialed by increasing your online presence. We market SonderMind services to clients, but there are more ways to reach clients. It’s highly recommended and encouraged to advertise your in-network status on external sites (i.e. Psychology Today - sign up here, or on your own website if you have one).  

  • Why should I do this? Not all potential clients will necessarily find SonderMind — they may use their insurance directory or perform a simple Google search. The more you increase your online presence, the more likely it is that clients will find and be able to access YOU.

You gain access to a helpful and organized work platform. Our platform has various tools to document clinical notes, see clients by video session, and a scheduler to stay organized. 

We guarantee pay.

  • You heard it right. After submitting your claim in a few simple steps, you are guaranteed to be paid the contracted amount for your session. That payout appears in your Available Funds balance after 24 hours and all of those funds are automatically paid out to your bank account every two weeks. 
  • SonderMind assumes the risk in insurance reimbursement and collections so that you don’t have to worry about not getting paid for your time.

We respect your autonomy. We don’t dictate the types of clients you see or how you schedule them — choose when and how you want to work.

We’re here to support you. We have a support team to assist you with billing questions, or if you’re stuck in your portal. Our Provider Success team works with you on overcoming challenges you might be facing in private practice. We’ve got your back!

You can utilize Anytime Messaging. Reach more clients by expanding your therapeutic channels to include messaging and be compensated for messaging. 

  • It’s free to participate in this program and allows you to reach clients that might not be totally ready for in-person/video sessions. You can also use it as a form of supplemental care with clients that you do see in-person or virtually. 

We’re growing our partnerships. We are constantly expanding our partnerships which, in turn, extend to all providers within the SonderMind Provider Network. These partnerships consist of the following:

  • Payors - Insurance and EAP’s
  • Medical Practices
  • Behavioral Health Organizations & Agencies
  • Health Systems & Hospitals
  • Veterans Administration
  • Strategic & Advocacy Organizations
  • Wellness & Holistic treatment centers

We host training webinars — Find recorded past webinars and other articles here that cover a variety of topics.
