January 01, 2012
Susie has been working as a Licensed Professional Counselor for Shannon Behavior Health Department and decided that she would like to open her own practice. Susie decided to open her office in a facility with other LPCs. Susie had decided that she would like to focus on counseling services for children and families.
Susie started her research to apply to be a Medicaid provider. Susie visited the SBDC for assistance with the Medicaid application process. Cindy Hartin met with Susie and discussed the Medicaid application process along with the application for a National Medicaid Provider Number. Susie said, “I learned the differences between the NPI number and a tax id number, and the purpose behind those numbers.” Susie is excited about her new opportunity to help the community, and she hopes to expand her services to include support groups.
