Seeing your mental health provider may be convenient when you can meet in the comforts of your home or office. That is why Silver Psychotherapy Services offers online visits and evaluations.
What is telehealth?
Instead of seeing your therapist in person, you will participate in video-conference using a computer, tablet or smartphone; your device will need to be enabled with internet access, a webcam or camera, and a microphone. The conversation between you and your therapist will be the same type of conversation you would have in a typical in-office face-to-face visit. Videoconferencing is conducted via a secure internet connection; all telehealth visits are confidential and HIPAA-compliant.
Will my insurance cover telehealth visits?
Check with your insurance provider. Most insurance providers are offering coverage of telehealth visits during the coronavirus pandemic.
How does a telehealth visit work?
- Schedule an appointment
