This depends on the CPT code and insurance company. We have a great contract with Cigna Evernorth and our rates are significantly higher than Alma and Headway. We also negotiate rates every year and pass the increases to our Insurance Program members.

Credentialing takes around 4-10 weeks. If you’re already credentialed it’s usually a bit quicker.

We’ve created a super simple claim form that is super quick to submit.

Supervisors submit claims just as they would for themselves. There’s no additional steps or paperwork. Cigna Evernorth and Aetna allows supervisory billing.

There is no cost to join for Ethera Members!

There is no commitment to our Insurance Program. You can start and leave at any time.

You will get paid 10-14 business days after you submit your claim.
