PH&W defines telehealth as the use of telecommunications technologies, often Internet-based to provide health care. According to the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), telehealth services may be provided through audio, text messaging, or video communication technology, including videoconferencing software.
The same services that are provided in a face-to-face session can be offered via telehealth.
Your provider ensures that every interaction between our patients occurs within the patient portal which offers additional security. We use HIPAA compliance software and hardware tools that adhere to security best practices and applicable legal standards for the purposes of protecting your privacy and ensuring that records of your health care services are not lost or damaged.

Risks include but not limited to:
Privacy: using telehealth may introduce risks to your privacy and may reduce your service provider’s ability to directly intervene in crises or emergencies.

When we begin accepting insurance, most carriers do cover telehealth services. Your contracted rates remain the same for services delivered via telehealth and face-to-face. Since we are using a fee-for service model, most often we are considered an out of network provider. You can pay for services using your FSA or HSA card or seek to be reimbursed by your insurance company. We strongly encourage you to contact your insurance company for further details.
