Provider referral program: Double-sided bonus structure


Please note: This provider referral bonus structure is currently in a pilot phase, meaning the bonus structure you receive might look different to that of other providers on Headway.

We're always looking for ways to improve our provider referral program at Headway. Over the past few months, we’ve heard your feedback and made some changes. Many providers shared that they would like the providers they refer to Headway to get rewarded too.

We're excited to announce an update to our Provider Referral Program. From April 10th - June 2nd, we are introducing a double-sided bonus structure to a select group of providers that will enable you and the providers you refer to Headway to earn a bonus when they join. 


How it works 

For referrals submitted between Wednesday, April 10, 2024 and Sunday, June 2, 2024:

  1. Refer a provider to Headway directly from your provider portal
  2. Once a provider you refer to Headway completes our intake form, you’ll earn a $350 bonus, similar to how our Provider Referral Program works today
  3. The provider you referred will also earn a $100 bonus once they complete their first appointment on Headway


Who you can refer to Headway

Headway is able to support any independently-licensed mental health providers in all 50 states. This includes talk therapists and psychiatric care practitioners.

Please Note: If you refer a provider after they've already joined Headway, you will not be eligible to receive a referral bonus. If you refer a provider to Headway who has already been referred to Headway by someone else, the initial referrer will receive a referral bonus if the referred provider completes our intake process


How to refer a provider

To refer a provider to Headway:

  1. Visit the Headway provider portal and sign in

This offer is valid for referrals submitted by select providers between April 10 - June 2, 2024, via your Headway provider portal or personalized link. Referrer bonus ($350) is awarded after the referred provider completes intake. Referee bonus ($100) is rewarded after the referred provider confirms their first appointment on Headway.
