Client Onboarding

From the client’s first contact, we will engage supportively and empathically, reflecting the culture of your practice and creating an inviting experience. We will discuss your practice, match the client with the the right clinician, enter their information into your chosen EHR, complete insurance verification, and schedule the first appointment. A seamless introduction to your practice will help your client realize that they made the right choice in choosing your practice. Uplift Virtual Assistants' use their customer service skills in guiding clients through the onboarding process prior to their first appointment and what to expect from your practice. We also respond to potential client outreach and follow your policies regarding waitlists, referring to other practitioners, conducting new client screenings, tracking data, and retuning new client and current client phone calls/emails. 

Insurance Verification

Being an insurance based practice comes with an added layer of administrative tasks: insurance! Assisting client's in understanding their in network and out of network benefits as well as mental health coverage is sometimes an overwhelming task - let alone being able to find the time to  gather the information to provide to your prospective client! Let Uplift Virtual Assistants verify client benefits via the online portals and/or the phone. You don’t need to be on hold waiting to verify benefits. Let us do the legwork for you. We have experience in verifying deductibles, copay/coinsurance, pre-authorizations, telehealth coverage, etc. for both counseling and psychological assessment. We also have experience with preparing preauthorization that are needed for psychological testing. 

Insurance Claim Issues

Do you have outstanding payments from insurance companies and you are guessing that something went wrong with the claim? Do you have difficulties finding time in your day to be able to research the issue and attempt to rectify it?  We know that sometimes claims don’t get paid correctly or can be denied. We will do the research to see what is happening with the claim. Does it need to be resubmitted? Was it billed incorrectly with the wrong Place of Service? Has coverage elapsed? We can resubmit the claim for you or submit a corrected claim. We can reach out to your client to inquire about updated insurance coverage. Claim issues can take a large chuck of your time that you could be devoting to your practice. We will assist you in rectifying these issues.

Hours do not roll over.  Your package hours can be used for any tasks and activities that you may needed assistance with. These can be one time tasks (e.g., proofreading a new policy) or recurring tasks (e.g., onboarding new clients, session billing, etc.).  If you notice that you are not using as many hours in the month to use your full package; we can brainstorm together what we can assist or complete on your behalf.

On Hand Admin

Does this sound like you? 

I own a solo private practice that, for the most part, runs pretty smoothly. I provide outstanding clinical care. I created a practice that I love -  this includes minimal administrative work. However, at times, I become inundated and overwhelmed with administrative tasks that I do not have time for, and frankly, do not want to do. The voicemails and emails for my services are piling up and I just don't have the energy to get back to people at the end of the day. Mostly, my insurance billing goes smoothly, but there are those times when I receive claim denials or claims that have not been paid, and it needs to be followed up on - but I don't really want to - even though I know it is important. 

Have you ever asked yourself?

  • I wish I could hire someone to complete these occasional one off tasks

  • I wish I had someone, who I trusted, and who knows the mental health business, to handle these issues

  • I don't need an assistant on a monthly basis - but dang, I do need one right now!

If you saw yourself in these scenarios and questions above, you are the perfect fit for our On Hand Admin services. 

On Hand Admin Package

  • Access to Virtual Assistant Services when you need

  • 1 Hour complimentary onboarding where we will:

    • Learn your Practice and System​s

    • Gain an understanding of you, your practice, pain points, and current/future admin needs

    • Access your systems (e.g., email, EHR, insurance portals etc.) so we are ready to go

  • When you raise your hand (e.g., send us an email or give us a call) we are ready to jump in and take tasks and worries off of your plate. ​

$99 Per Month

Up to 3 hours of services in a month

If in one month you go over your hours, additional hours are $39/hour

One Time Project Pricing

Do you have a one time project that would benefit from an extra set of eyes, hands, and virtual power? Do you need an assistant for a project, but not ongoing virtual assistant services? Let us custom tailor our services to fit your needs. We would love to provide the support to get you and your project where you want to be. Contact us to set up a time to discuss your project so that we may provide a fee proposal. Examples of projects that we have completed for clients: resource library for social media posting, referral list for providers in their community (or state for telehealth),  waitlist tracking system, claims issues tracking system.

About Us

Uplift Virtual Assistants started with a common passion: mental health and wellness. Nancy and Beth met in a non profit agency while Nancy was providing administrative and front desk support in a behavioral and mental health clinic and Beth was completing her therapy practicum. They became fast friends and often joked that Nancy would provide the administrative support once Beth opened her own practice. Fast forward 12 years, Uplift Virtual Assistants is founded. From the administrative to the clinical, we understand the importance of mental health and serving your communities and ideal clients. 

Our experiences in various mental health agencies and practices have solidified our values in creating open and honest relationships with our clients.  We value the trust our clients place in us and we do our best to swiftly manage administrative tasks, interact professionally and empathically with clients and staff, and ensure practices run smoothly and efficiently.

Our goal is help support your practice by handling the administrative tasks that take a large chunk of your time. Your skills and expertise should be focused on outstanding clinical care, while our skills and expertise will be focused on supporting your practice. We can't wait to grow with you and support your visions - wherever that will take you - once you have more time!
