Telehealth at MCCA: Frequently Asked Questions:
Question: Is telehealth available at MCCA?
Answer: Yes. Telehealth is available for existing clients, as well as new clients who are seeking treatment for mental health and/or addiction. We accept plans that cover telehealth (also known as telemedicine or telemental health). Please check with your insurance company to find out whether your plan covers telehealth.
Question: Is this secure and HIPAA compliant?
Answer: Yes. MCCA is using a HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliant platform in the delivery of telehealth to protect your privacy and confidentiality. The technology we use is free to the client.
Question: How do I sign up for this?
Answer: If you are a new patient, please discuss your interest in telehealth with our clinician during the intake process. Upon agreement of treatment, you will be asked to complete an intake form and a Telehealth consent form.
Question: How does telehealth treatment differ from in-person treatment?
Answer: Typically, clients can receive the same services that they would if they participated in in-person therapy, such as assessment, diagnosis, management, follow-up, and more.
MCCA is currently providing individual and small group counseling with Telehealth. Treatment with video conferencing and smart phones calls require that the client and therapist both be present, as this communication occurs in real-time. Keep in mind that video conferencing using a laptop or tablet is most similar to face-to-face therapy.
Online therapy may not be a suitable solution for everyone. People with serious mental health disorders require direct treatment.
