Do you need support for an illness or disorder, but can’t make it to an in-person appointment?
Are you a busy stay-at-home or working parent, and don’t have time to schedule or keep doctor appointments?
Do you lack health insurance, or does your health insurance fail to fully cover your medical needs?
Telehealth (or telemedicine) is a fairly recent innovation. Telehealth allows the facilitation of health-related services to patients via live video conferencing. Thanks to modern technology, just about everyone in the U.S. has a smartphone or tablet capable of video chat. This ease of access to make video calls has revolutionized the health industry, allowing doctors and nurses to interact with patients through a convenient phone call.
Using your smartphone, you can consult with a nurse, a physician or mental health professional to receive ongoing care when your primary care physician is unavailable, to get a prescription refilled, review test results or medical summaries or to have a remote therapy or counseling appointment.
Telehealth appointments can be very beneficial if getting to a traditional in-person appointment is a hassle for you. If you lack the time or resources to use public transportation, are physically disabled or live in a remote area, telehealth appointments can help by removing the need to leave your home to attend an appointment.
In the United States, approximately 80 million people have inadequate health insurance or no health insurance at all. Telehealth can be more affordable for clients paying out of pocket.
So if this sounds like you:
- You lack health insurance or recently lost coverage
- Your health problem isn’t covered by your insurance
- You don’t have the right type of medical professional nearby
- You lack the time or resources to get to an in-person medical appointment
- You want the ease and convenience of a video conference appointment
… then Telehealth services may be just what you need.
The convenience of scheduling an appointment through a phone app cannot be understated. Quickly pick a date and time, and you’ve scheduled your online appointment. There’s no need to get ready, or even leave your bed or couch. If you have social anxiety or phobias that cause you to avoid social interactions, Telehealth makes it easier for you to get therapy or medication. For existing clients, if interested in adding Telehealth as an option call to discuss adding this to your service options so we can determine together with your readiness for participating in Telehealth if it would benefit you in your treatment.
