Credit/Debit Cards and Electronic Payments in Mental Health Private Practice: Regulatory and Ethical Issues


Credit cards are becoming par for the course in private practice! Many clinicians know that clients love the convenience, but may be hazy on the legal and ethical issues involved.

How does HIPAA come in to keeping card information safe? Are those email receipts okay? Can I pass the fees on to the client? What the heck is PCI DSS and do I have to comply with it?

All of those essential questions around regulatory and ethical issues in taking plastic are addressed in this 1-hour guided reading written for private practitioners from the professions of marriage and family therapy, professional counseling, clinical social work, and psychology.
