Part 1: Enter your clinical info, practice settings, and billing settings

In this section, we will walk you through how to enter information about you & your practice. Here are the 3 main sections:

  1. Basic Info
  2. Practice Details
  3. Billing and Services settings

1. Basic Info

Here's how to access the Basic Info section:

  1. Log into your SimplePractice account.
  2. Click My Account (drop-down located in the upper right corner).
  3. Settings > Basic Info

The Basic Info section contains two the following 2 subsections.

  • Personal Info. This section includes the information you entered when you signed up. You won’t need to update anything here right now.
  • Clinical Info. This is where you will enter your License information and NPI number. This information will display on your documentation as well as superbills and CMS1500 forms. It’s important to enter this information correctly so you don’t run into any issues if you plan to file claims.

Enter your license and clincian informtion on the Clinical Info page in the Basic Info section of your SimplePractice App.

2. Practice Details

Now we’re ready to enter in all the details about your practice. There’s just 4 quick things you’ll want to add here.

  1. Your Practice Name will display on billing documents and in the Client Portal.
  2. Practice Email is the email address your client’s will see as a reply to email address when they receive messages from you. Leave this blank if you don’t want clients to see your email address.
  3. Enter in your Phone Number as well in order for clients to be able to call you.
  4. Add your address in the Office section.

Note: Make sure to click Save to save any changes you’ve made.

Practice Details, Name, Practice Email and Phone and Office name and address are important items for your Client Portal.

3. Billing and Services settings

Now this section might appear to be a bit overwhelming, but in this guide, we’re just going to focus on the basics to get your started.

  • First, let’s start on the Settings tab in the Billing and Services section. You’ll want to add you Tax ID or SS# here for billing documents and claims.
  • Next, you’ll set up Invoice Settings. We recommend keeping this on Daily even if you don’t give your clients an invoice because the system needs invoices to know what you are billing the client.
  • After that, click the Services tab to edit services codes and add any other service codes you plan to use. There’s more settings in the Billing section that you’ll be able to go over later, but for now you’re ready to go with the basics!

Tax ID or SS# is important to enter into your Billing and Services settings of your SimplePractice App account.
