THERAPY SESSIONS ONLINE

Though we have always participated in teletherapy, at this time, we have moved the practice entirely online. We will again offer in-office sessions when it is safe for us to do so. 

 

Everything in our practice is available online, and Telehealth is now being covered by every mental health plan. Your benefits will be identical to your in-office benefits until well into 2021. 

 

Insurance

 

The State of MN has informed us that starting March 16th, every insurance policy that has mental health coverage will now also cover teletherapy services, and we are committed to doing everything in our power to make therapy accessible at this time. 

 

Teletherapy

Maureen and Melissa are both available through doxy.me, a HIPAA-compliant online chat space. 

 

At this time, the government has waived HIPAA requirements, so if you’d prefer a phone call (or to Facetime), these are currently also options for our clients. Our main platform, however, will be doxy.me

Paperwork

 

All of our paperwork is digital, and does not require printing. You fill it out and send it right back to us. When you start therapy, we will send you an invite to fill out the intake paperwork. Please ensure that you have that complete by the first session. 

 

Payment

 

Our practice is set up to run payments directly through our electronic health records (EHR). There is an invitation to put your card on file in the intake paperwork. We run payment after sessions (and after insurance has processed a claim, if you are using insurance). 

 

Not sure about your insurance coverage? We can send you the Insurance Registration page, and our biller will double-check your benefits for you. 

 

 

We are so grateful that teletherapy allows us to safely continue to provide support to our clients and community at large at these unprecedented times.

 

Wishing you health, safety, and wellness. Please let us know if you have any questions (contact form is below).
