Hi friends: This topic/question may interest our forum members that are licensed psychologists and in private practice. I'm a fairly newly (3 mos) licensed psychologist in Georgia. I am interested in starting a private practice and just learned that most of the insurance companies I called (BCBS & Aetna to name a few) indicated that a psychologist must be licensed for at least two years before being able to join a panel. Have others had experiences like this or similar to this? I was wondering whether physicians have the same or a similar wait? Best to all!
