Teletherapy or telemental health is therapy provided through synchronous video via HIPAA compliant platform. The only difference between traditional face to face therapy and teletherapy is that it is done through video and can take place at a location of client’s choosing. This is particularly useful to individuals who cannot leave their home, with transportation issues, who work unconventional hours, or concerns for contagious illness. Most insurance companies will cover teletherapy but it is a good idea to follow up with your insurance provider first and verify that this is a covered modality. The client must be in NC at the time of session due to licensure requirements.
