If you want to request Telepsychology/Online Video therapy treatment sessions from “The Psychology Center, Inc” here are some important things you will want to know.
You can choose treatment by:
- Telephone calls
- Online video sessions
- Not available in all insurance plans
Any of these options may be more convenient for you in case of delays getting to the office, bad weather, illness, no transportation, etc. You will want to discuss directly with your doctor which options they can offer you, and how often- and you can still have in-office appointments too whenever you choose. Insurance reimbursement MAY be available for these professional services, but if not, you will be responsible for Doctor’s charges which may vary depending on professional time spent.
In the case of telephone or Online Video Conferencing for your treatment sessions you can choose:
- 30-minute sessions
- 45-minute sessions
- 55-minute sessions
Your usual copay – already determined by your insurance plan – will apply and a CREDIT CARD account can be established on your behalf to cover these charges.
You will be given a LINK or PORTAL to access ahead of time to make and secure your video appointment. The Doctor will be waiting for you and a User ID and Password will be determined by you ahead of time
Again, you have a choice of using:
- Your desktop computer
- Your laptop
- Your tablet
- Your smartphone
The video connection will be secure and HIPAA compliant. However, your privacy cannot be guaranteed using the other telepsychology methods except video. We cannot be responsible for technical problems that may occur or delay your online session.
You will need to complete certain INTAKE FORMS to participate in the Telepsychology program, including:
