Frequently asked questions

Here are some commonly asked questions, or read all FAQs.

Is SimplePractice HIPAA-compliant?

SimplePractice is HIPAA compliant and HITRUST certified. The HITRUST framework is the gold standard of security certifications in the healthcare industry. You can learn more about all the ways we keep customer and client data safe.

Is SimplePractice ICD-10 compliant?

Yes. We are fully compliant with the requirements put forth by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in the ICD-10 mandate.

How does billing for telehealth work?

When billing insurance, we recommend that you always check with the individual insurance payer to determine whether telehealth services are covered and, if they are, which codes or modifier should be used for different types of services.

It’s very important to check directly with the insurance payer because coverage for telehealth services is constantly changing.

What equipment do I need?

To provide telehealth sessions, you will need the following:

  • A computer (laptop or desktop) or smartphone. Newer devices (purchased in the last two years) will be better equipped to provide telehealth sessions.
  • An integrated or external microphone.
  • An integrated or external web camera.
  • An internet connection that is at least 10 Mbps. For optimal results, a reliable, high-speed internet connection with a bandwidth of at least 10 Mbps will minimize connection issues and provide the best quality.

How much does Telehealth cost?

Telehealth by SimplePractice costs $10/month/clinician and is only available on the Professional Plan. So your all-in monthly cost as a solo practitioner would be $69 ($59 + $10).
