Have you ever wondered how to go private pay and still provide access to folks who need evaluations but can’t pay for them? This episode is for you. I love talking with Dr. Annie VanSkiver because she clearly values access to services yet has also found ways to grow a profitable practice that does not rely on insurance. This is a great episode with tons of takeaway content! Here are a few things we talk about:
- How to get off insurance panels
- Balancing access for clients with profitability
- Contracts that can help supplement private pay clients
- How to let referral sources know that you’re going off panels

About Dr. Annie VanSkiver
Annie is a private practice owner in Williamsburg Virginia. She opened her practice in 2017 after transitioning out of employment at the State hospital where she served as assistant forensic coordinator for 8 years. The inspiration for Annie’s practice came from Jeremy’s podcast as her passion is testing and data, and it never occurred to her that she could open a practice that only does testing! Annie loves working with kids and families to help kiddos, particularly around learning to disabilities, autism, and ADHD, and other developmental differences. Annie’s husband Jesse is a special education teacher and together they have three amazing kiddos through birth and adoption, one with some complex needs. Her dogs are named after Harry Potter characters which also adorn her office, creating an excellent starting point for conversation with her clients!
