Telebehavioral Health Services

Telehealth utilizes video equipment and online technology to conduct a live consultation with a remote specialty physician. Seeing a provider, via telehealth, is a convenience for patients, reducing time and cost spent traveling. It also offers more options to schedule an appointment with a specialist at your local clinic. Most importantly, patients receive timely, quality care that is equivalent to a face-to-face consultation with a physician.

How does it work?

At a telehealth appointment, you (and your support person) will meet with a physician at a different location via a video link. You will see the doctor on the monitor and be able to talk to them as you would with a face-to-face consultation.

To begin, a telehealth appointment introductions will be made and your plan of care will be reviewed with the provider.

How long does it take?

Your first telehealth visit may take up to an hour. If follow-up visits are recommended, these visits usually take about 30 minutes.

Is it covered by insurance?

Although most insurance plans treat telehealth with the same considerations and co-pays as an in-person appointment with a specialty physician, we recommend confirming coverage with your carrier’s policy.
