Burt Bertram, Ed.D., discusses fees as well as fee-splitting, bartering, gifts, and other billing issues. Participants will learn best billing and business practices to ensure they are adhering to both their state’s legal regulations and the 2014 ACA Code of Ethics. Dr. Bertram is a mental health counselor in private practice in Florida and is a co-author of the American Counseling Association’s bestselling book, The Counselor and the Law.
