Common FAQs

What if members of my firm are not ALCA members? Can they still sign up for VillagePlan™?

Yes, all qualified Care Managers (based upon criteria for membership in ALCA) can sign up for VillagePlan™. However, if a member of your firm is not a member of ALCA he/she needs to be supervised by an external ALCA member and agree to adhere to the ALCA code of ethics and standards of practice.

How does VillagePlan™ work? What happens before and after I get a client through VillagePlan™?

A client will contact our Experts-on-Call, Professional Care Managers, at which time a Snapshot Report and Client Profile is created in our system. When the decision is made to engage a local Care Manager we'll search our network for Care Managers nearby who fit the client's needs. At that time, we provide the SnapShot and Client Profile the local Care Manager and arrange a meeting so that the client can directly engage with you and continue to be serviced via VillagePlan™'s Network and agreed upon automatic bill-pay. The local Care Manager will use the VillagePlan™ system to further update care plan and services for the client and submit hours for payment via an invoice entry on the VillagePlan™ system.

Do I have to do my own invoicing? How do I get paid?

The billing and collecting is all done through the VillagePlan™ - so you don't have to deal with the bookkeeping. VillagePlan™ has the ability to pay an invoice upon submission within 72 hours, assuming the invoice submitted is approved by the Network Care Manager. Some payments may take longer than other so we recommend you expect payment a week after the date of invoice approval. We recommend submitting invoices two times each month (e.g. by the 15th and by the 30th day of the month) to establish a consistent flow with the family client. All billing summaries or details for your records can be provided as needed.

How does VillagePlan™ make money if they're paying me my market rate?

Our terms allow us to mark-up from your full market rate to help us with the cost of marketing and Experts-on-Call time, as well as payment processing charges, platform hosting costs, and technical support for you and family account administration.

When are you going to launch? When should I expect clients?

Our soft marketing launch will be Fall 2015. New client opportunities will depend on the needs address of the family client and their loved one, and their utilization of our programs. We will send out updates in October with more details.

I submitted my Network Professional Verification form, what happens next?

You will receive a confirmation of receipt of the application. Then, within a few weeks you will receive our “Welcome Packet” , followed by a series of training videos about 45 seconds each in length. In addition, we will be communicating regularly with updates.

More FAQs are available with your enrollment forms and our help desk is also happy to answer your questions.
