Now more than ever, it is important to have guidance, support, and encouragement to navigate our uncertain times. Cor Counseling therapists provide telehealth sessions that allow you to meet in your home over a secure online video platform. Contact us today to find out more about openings and how to schedule a telehealth session.
What is telehealth and how does it work?
Online telehealth video sessions work in much the same way as programs such as Skype, Zoom, or Facetime. Cor Counseling therapists use online video platforms that meet the highest standards for privacy and security. When you schedule an appointment with your therapist, they will provide a secure link to meet online. When it is time for your appointment you will simply click on the link and connect with your therapist via video conferencing.
Is telehealth counseling effective?
Yes! Research indicates that clients report telehealth counseling to be just as effective as in-person therapy. Meeting online is also shown to reduce cost and increase accessibility. It can take some adjustment getting used to meeting online, but over time clients report feeling very comfortable with the process and love the fact that they don’t have to worry about drive time or parking!
Does my insurance cover online counseling?
As of January 1, 2017, all insurers including private payers, employee health plans and Medicaid Managed Care are required to cover live video telehealth. Make sure to call and check with your insurance company and ask about their coverage for behavioral health benefits via telehealth.
What program do you use?
Each therapist uses their own preferred platform for online sessions. Your therapist will explain how to access a secure link in order to connect to your online session. All of our therapists use HIPAA compliant video platforms in order to provide reliable video streaming services that guarantees security and confidentiality.
Is telehealth just as private as in-person sessions?
Your therapist will conduct your session in a private, secure location just as they would in a live, in-person counseling session. You will need to make sure that your own area is secure as well.
How does scheduling work?
You will work with your therapist to schedule the day and time of your appointment. You will be sent a reminder of your upcoming session 24-48 hours before your scheduled appointment. Your therapist will explain how to access a secure link in order to connect to your online session.
How do I get started?
Call our main line to find out which therapists have openings and can meet your treatment needs. There are certain diagnoses and situations that are not appropriate for telehealth sessions and may require higher levels of immediate care such as hospitalization or in-patient treatment. Your therapist will be able to determine if you are a good fit once you connect and discuss your first appointment.
