At The Remedy, we recognize that there may be barriers in the way; preventing you from accessing much needed mental health and addiction services. Because of this, we are committed to providing state of the art, HIPAA compliant telemental health services to you when you are not able to come to the office for an in person visit – the provision of mental health/addiction services via video conferencing and other technologies – can bridge the gap, allowing you to maintain a personal relationship with your psychiatrist/therapist and get the help you need no matter how hectic your life is or what mobility restrictions you are faced with. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has shone a bright light on the importance of telehealth and we are proud to offer it to our patients.
Although working with a psychiatrist/therapist through video visits may occur as awkward or uncomfortable; most patients quickly adapt and find it a very comfortable, efficient and effective way to access services when an in person visit is not possible.
Telemental health visits are done through a link sent to you. You can use any device with a microphone and video camera (Desktop computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone).
At the time of your appointment, simply click on the link you have been given, and wait for your psychiatrist/therapist to log on. Your visit will then immediately start. The quality of the video and sound is excellent.
Telemental health services are covered by your insurance at the same rates in person visits are covered. All services are covered including psychiatry services, addiction psychiatry, Suboxone, and psychotherapy. (there may be some limitations on certain controlled medications being prescribed through telemental health visits).
