Are you a busy stay-at-home or working parent, and simply don't have time to visit a doctor or therapist in person? Do you lack or recently lose health insurance, or does your health insurance fail to fully cover your specific medical needs?
Telehealth with Montgomery Counseling Group may be able to help you!
What is Telehealth?
Telehealth (or telemedicine) is a fairly recent innovation. Telehealth allows the facilitation of health-related services to patients via live video conferencing. Thanks to modern technology, just about everyone in the U.S. has a smartphone or tablet capable of video chatting.
During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, when social distancing became a standard, many states had stay at home regulations in place, and telehealth services became crucial to the healthcare industry. Many services transitioned to telehealth during this time and have since remained a way to “visit” your doctor or therapist in place of in-person appointments.
It was during this time that some insurance companies also adapted their approach to teletherapy. Adjustments were made to address the need for teletherapy as well as to allow insurance to cover teletherapy.
This ease of access to make video calls has thus revolutionized the healthcare industry, allowing doctors and nurses to interact with patients through the convenience of a phone call. It has been proven that telehealth and counseling via telehealth is equally as effective as in-person counseling, and scheduling a telehealth appointment with Montgomery Counseling Group is secure and easy!
Telehealth Appointments Can be Very Beneficial.
Telehealth appointments can be very beneficial if getting to a traditional, in-person appointment is not ideal for you. If you lack the time or resources to use public transportation, are physically disabled or live in a remote area, telehealth appointments can help by removing the need to leave your home to attend an appointment.
You can consult with a nurse, a physician or a mental health professional to receive ongoing care when your primary care physician is unavailable, to get a prescription refilled, review test results or medical summaries or to have a remote therapy or counseling appointment right from your smartphone or tablet!
In the United States, approximately 80 million people have inadequate health insurance, or no health insurance at all. Telehealth can be more affordable for clients paying out of pocket.
A Telehealth Appointment may be an option for you if you are experiencing any of the following concerns:
- You lack health insurance, or have recently lost coverage
- Your health concern isn’t covered by your insurance
- You don’t have the right type of medical professional nearby
- You lack the time or resources to get to an in-person medical appointment
- You want the ease and convenience of a video conference appointment
- You have concerns about visiting new places due to COVID-19
- You have social anxiety or phobias that cause you to avoid social interactions
