What do I need?
RPS uses Doxy.Me for telehealth visits. This is a HIPAA compliant platform that you can easily access from your computer. Most major insurance carriers cover telemedicine visits and we will call your insurance company to verify your coverage prior to your first session. We recommend your initial visit be in our clinic to meet you, establish a plan, and decide if telemedicine is appropriate for you.
What can I gain?
We have designated providers who are here to help you by offering therapy via your personal computer. You are able to access therapy at home, work, or even when traveling.
Is telehealth as helpful as meeting in person?
Research strongly suggests it is.
Telehealth is an effective way to monitor the mental health of patients, adjust medications, and conduct cognitive behavioral therapy – National Institute of Mental Health.
Video or virtual visits can be effective for the treatment of depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders, as well as for couples and family counseling. The approach is also used for addiction counseling, grief therapy, and anger management among many other diagnoses. Research also shows that telehealth has high rates of client satisfaction and positive clinical outcomes.
