PCI vs Private Practice

Psychology Consultants Inc. VS. Private Practice

Are you considering what a career would look like at Psychology Consultants versus a private practice?

The differences can be astounding. Take a look at some of them:

No-call, no-shows
PCI

We don't use appointment scheduling. Our clinicians have flexibility based on client availability, meaning no worries about cancellations or no-shows.

Private Practice

Your schedule is by the hour, every hour - or even more often in some cases. If your patient doesn't show, you're left sitting to wait on your next appointment.

Pay you can count on
PCI

Don't wait on an insurance claim to be approved to get paid. Our team is paid regularly, regardless of insurance issues.

Private Practice

Wait... and wait... for an insurance company to pay. And if a claim is denied? You're out of luck.

Steady hours
PCI

We're open 9-5, M-F. No nights, no weekends!

Private Practice

You have to work varying hours, and often evenings and weekends.

Support staff
PCI

Our entire staff works the same hours you do. So you always have someone available to assist with a technical issue, or another clinician to consult on a unique case.

Private Practice

You’re on your own!

Billing
PCI

Our staff handles ALL the paperwork — billing, insurance claims, etc.

Private Practice

What a hassle! Either you handle it yourself, or you pay someone to do it for you.
