The AMHCA Handbook of Essential Forms and Marketing Strategies.
This manual provides essential information for counselors in private practice who are either just starting out or have established practices. It is organized into six sections, which contain forms relating to different aspects of practice. The material can be used to create new forms or adapted for individual use. They can also serve to generate marketing ideas, help work with managed care organizations, and improve billing. Chapter 1 concerns office policy and procedures and contains sample letters to clients on policy, discontinuation of therapy, and other acknowledgements. Chapter 2 deals with billing to insurance companies and individuals. Chapter 3 considers client release and consent forms. Chapter 4 discusses intake, clinical evaluations, and progress monitoring. Chapter 5 presents marketing ideas. Chapter 6 explains how to work with managed care organizations. A CD-ROM accompanies the manual. (JDM)
