Prior to engaging in telehealth, you will need to sign and Electronic Service Delivery Informed Consent Agreement. You can find that form HERE. You will be instructed to provide your name and email and will need to verify your account. You will then be able to sign the document online. You cannot begin telehealth services without signing this document.
Please contact your clinician individually to schedule telehealth sessions. Please note that some of your clinician's available hours may have changed due to current circumstances. Your normally scheduled appointment may not be available. Participating in telehealth services is not mandatory.
Telehealth includes any services for the maintenance of treatment that does not occur in-person. This may include video meetings and phone calls.
Phone calls: Please note that phone calls will not be payable through insurance. If you choose to have a phone call with your clinician, you may be charged out of pocket. Phone calls that last longer than 15 minutes will be charged at an out-of-pocket rate of $75/hour.
Video sessions: Video sessions may be payable through insurance. We have communicated with our insurance contractors and most in-network insurance companies will pay for telehealth. Please contact your insurance company directly to confirm that your plan covers telehealth. Video sessions will be billed at the same rate as face-to-face sessions. If you typically owe a copayment or deductible, the same rates will apply to video sessions. If you will be paying out of pocket for services, the same out-of-pocket/out-of-network rates will apply.
By participating in telehealth services, you agree to be charged for services. These charges will be billed through Simple Practice.
Late cancelation/no-show fees will continue to apply to telehealth sessions. If you cancel with less than 24 hours notice or do not show up for your session, you will be charged $75. This does not apply to clients that are on Medicaid and Medicare plans. If you are scheduled for a session and you do not attend the entire duration of the scheduled appointment, you will still be charged for the full allotted time.
