Talkspace offers you the ability to connect with clients via asynchronous text, audio, and video messaging. This means that your clients’ messages do not require an immediate response; you always have the flexibility to process and thoughtfully engage on your own schedule. Depending on the client’s plan, we also offer Live Sessions (Video, Audio, and Chat).
Talkspace clients include employees seeking counseling through their organization’s benefits, individuals covered under by our insurance partners (Optum, Humana or Premera), and those who sign up directly through the platform. Talkspace matches you with clients based on state of residency, as well as your areas of expertise. We’ll always handle patient eligibility.
With Talkspace, you earn money both for conducting live sessions with clients and when you message with them. You can also earn bonuses by maintaining long-term client relationships on the platform.
We recently increased provider pay by 20%. You can expect to be reimbursed $67.90 per hour for Live Sessions (video, audio, or chat) - nearly 2x our competition!
Here are our rates for live sessions:
30 minute session: $34.50
45 minute session: $50.93
60 minute session: $67.90
Our bonuses range from $100 to $5,000 depending on how many long term clients you have:
For messaging sessions, you’ll receive a rate of $24 - $26.92 per session, depending on the plan type.
Example: If a provider works 15 hours in a week, with 10 hours of live sessions and 5 hours of message sessions, they can expect to make an average of $930 per week.
