Due to the Covid-19 (Corona Virus) pandemic, we are establishing options for patients to receive services through video conferencing sessions. At this point Medicare has agreed to reimburse for psychotherapy delivered through telehealth. Blue Cross Blue Shield and Aetna along with other major insurers have agreed to reimburse for telehealth sessions. If you are unsure about whether or not your insurance company will reimburse for telehealth, please contact them.
Before using telehealth or telepsychology services you will need to give your provider a signed copy of the INFORMED CONSENT CHECKLIST FOR TELEPSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICES (under the FORMS link). You may fax this to 682-224-5724, email a scanned copy to your provider or photograph it and send it to your provider as a text message.
To use our telepsychology services from a computer you will need to use either the Google Chrome browser (available by clicking https://www.google.com/chrome/) or the Firefox browser (available by clicking https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/). If you are using your phone or a tablet, touching the link below will take you to a browser that should work for your session. Please check your provider's link in advance of your appointment to ensure that the device you are using will work. You can do this by running a "Pre-Call Test" at the telehealth site.
To log in to your provider's waiting room, go to:
https://doxy.me/drrusswood for Dr. Wood
https://doxy.me/drsmithvaughan for Dr. Smith-Vaughan
https://doxy.me/drhayleyblackwood for Dr. Blackwood
Upon arrival at the above link, you will be in a virtual waiting room until your provider starts your session. Please test your computer or device ahead of your scheduled appointment to ensure that doxy.me is able to access your camera and microphone.
