What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is the use of electronic communication to remotely provide health care information and services. Our telehealth sessions are one-on-one physical therapy video sessions, completed over an online platform.
Our highly trained therapists have a wide set of skills that they can implement through this platform. These skills include observation, skilled movement interventions, knowledge of appropriate self-care interventions, and more. Many of our patients have already found meaningful healing without the use of hands-on techniques. In a time that is uncertain and often scary, telehealth can provide patients with a sense of autonomy over their symptoms and help them establish a plan to take control of their physical and mental well-being.
How does Telehealth work?
– Beyond Basics has partnered with Doxy.me in order to provide telehealth services securely
– This service does not require patients to download any software
– Patients simply click on the link provided by their therapist (via email) on any device that has a microphone and a camera
– The appointments will be 45-60 minutes in length, your therapist can help determine the appropriate length of time for you
– You will likely need little equipment, but in general we suggest you dress in comfortable clothing you can move easily in, have a space where you can stand and move freely, and have a space where you can lie down and complete exercises
– If you have them, it may be a good idea to gather: a yoga mat, a foam roller, massage balls, stretch or yoga straps, therabands, etc.
– If you are uncertain whether telehealth can work for you, please reach out to your therapist; they will be happy to walk you through the ways in which you may benefit
How does billing work?
Most likely, your current billing will not change, as many insurances are covering telehealth physical therapy sessions. However, for some plans, reimbursement rates may be different for telehealth services. All billing will continue to be submitted by our staff.
Please contact [email protected] for further billing information and clarification.
