FAQs

Will I have access to standardized assessments for evaluations?

Coral Care promotes the use of evidence based care and assessment tools; this way providers and families alike can track and celebrate the measurable progress that has been made throughout treatment. We understand that standardized assessments are incredibly expensive and are often a barrier for providers to take on private clients. This is why Coral Care invests in its providers and offers access to several standardized assessments for each discipline while providing therapists the flexibility to use their preferred standardized assessments as well. Coral Care provides the manuals and scoring sheets for each assessment in our library; however, therapists are responsible for having any manipulatives needed to render the assessment.

What are the expectations around documentation ?

You will have access to our simple to use HIPAA compliant documentation system for evaluation reports and ongoing session notes. You will have access to our goal bank with over 200 SMART goals for each discipline that has been devised by licensed OTs, PTs, and SLPs with 10+ years of experience. To ensure the accuracy of the notes and compliance to local, state,and federal regulations evaluation and session notes are to be completed within 48 hours of the scheduled session.

What kind of training and ongoing support does Coral Care offer?

We take pride in our growing network of independently licensed providers, we rely on their expertise, their ongoing pursuit for continuing education, and their commitment to providing evidence based care. We want to ensure that we provide the necessary support to set up our providers for success and have created systems to allow for professional growth and development. Coral Care offers its providers consultation sessions with its Clinical Quality Committee team members and hosts quarterly webinars covering a wide range of clinical topics focused on pediatric care.

How is my schedule managed?

You will add your times of availability within your Coral Care profile and each week ensure that the times listed continue to be accurate. Families will be able to see your availability and request an appointment within the platform. You will have the opportunity to accept or decline the appointment request. For ongoing sessions you will be able to directly schedule the appointments within your calendar.

What do in-home visits look like?

You will arrive for the scheduled session to the client’s home. You will be expected to bring any necessary materials you need to engage with the child for an evaluation or treatment. You may use the client’s toys, furniture, or items in the home and incorporate them into your session. You will be responsible for communicating treatment length and frequency, developing goals, tracking progress, and scheduling ongoing appointments with the family.

What expectations should I have with regard to the amount of clients I get?

The amount of clients on your caseload and the speed at which you build up your caseload to your ideal working hours is dependent on your willingness to accept clients, the mileage radius you set, your credentialing status with payers, and whether your particular clinical specialties are in line with the needs of your service area. New providers will experience a trickle of clients as not all families can afford to be self-pay; you will see an increase in opportunities once you are credentialed with insurance companies. You have the ability to set your distance limit to 5 miles and you will be greatly decreasing the amount of clients you can service and your earning potential. Whereas if you extend your coverage area to 25 miles, you will be able to build up your caseload quickly and start earning a substantial monthly supplemental income.

Will I be able to see clients through insurance instantly?

No, newly onboarded providers can only provide services to self-pay families only. Assuming all the necessary paperwork has been submitted to our credentialing team in a timely fashion, credentialing with payers is a 3 month minimum process.

What can I do to get the most of the marketplace and maximize my earnings?
  • Set your mileage radius up to 30 miles from your base location
  • As you develop your caseload, stack your appointments for locations that are further away 
  • Accept job opportunities if they fall within your radius and your clinical expertise
  • Complete credentialing tasks promptly, the faster you tend to them the quicker you will be in-network and have access to more clients. 
  • Keep your calendar with availabilities up to date
  • Continue to hone your clinical skills and specialities and update your bio 
  • Stay curious and flexible about opportunities presented to you 
  • Collaborate with other Coral Care providers on your client's care team
