Anyone with experience providing services on therapy apps like Better Help or Doctors on Demand? Does it seem legit and is the compensation worth it?
Be very certain of licensure requirements (e.g, where you have to be licensed to provide remote services). Varify any info you get from Docs on Demand regarding licensure requirements. There have been some some COVID related changes/allowances in licensure pertaining to remote services, and you need to be aware of these both for the state you are in and the state the client is in. DO NOT TRUST Docs on Demand to provide you with the most up-to-date and accurate info- it's your ass on the line if something goes wrong with a client and you are technically practicing psychology without a license. Also verify that you have appropriate malpractice coverage under a policy from an insurer that is looking out for your interests and not just Docs on Demand. Read all contracts very carefully (and ideally review with an attorney).Bumping this thread. When COVID first hit, I sent in a CV to Doctors on Demand and a recruiter followed up recently to set up a 30 minute call. Does anybody have first, second, or third hand info about psychology on this platform?
I currently work for a VA and am fairly satisfied, generally enjoy agency work, really enjoy teleworking (no commuting, more time with dogs, etc), and thankful I don't have immediate pressures to bring in more income (nor do I know if I want to do more patient care beyond my VA hours or would give up my VA gig for something else FT right now).
I spoke with a recruiter and for psychologist contract work, it's a minimum 12 hrs/wk commitment at $60 gross for each 50 min session + documentation. They take care of billing/insurance since most users are on employer-sponsored plans. Therapy pts self-schedule and you do a treatment plan during the initial session. There's possible peer review of clinical documentation by their therapy clinical team.
