If you’re only just starting to provide virtual visits to clients, you’re likely unfamiliar with how differently you’ll need to record these visits for insurance and billing purposes. You might also not realize the differences in obtaining sufficient informed consent or ensuring a completely HIPAA-compliant service. It’s possible to do the research and teach yourself as many teletherapists have done. To ensure you’re in complete compliance and not making any billing mistakes, though, it would be especially helpful and convenient to undergo telehealth training.
By undergoing the special training for teletherapy, you can feel confident in your knowledge of how choosing teletherapy over in-person visits will affect both your operations and your client’s experience. You’ll be able to talk them through their insurance coverage, how they’ll be billed, and how their visits will be conducted. With these expertise, you’ll be able to make the most of telehealth in your practice.
