Telemedicine Q&A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine delivers health care online through a secure video conferencing platform. You can connect with NYC Psychiatric Associates using your smartphone, tablet, or computer, giving you access to comprehensive care whether you’re at home, traveling, or living a distance from the office.

Insurance companies cover telemedicine, paying the same as they would for in-office services. However, what they pay depends on your policy. Call the NYC Psychiatric Associates office to verify your coverage.

What are the advantages of telemedicine?

Telemedicine makes it easier to feel relaxed and receptive to mental health care, which helps adults but is especially beneficial for children and teens. Virtual visits reduce delays in mental health care and eliminate common barriers like taking time from work and paying for childcare.

Most importantly, you receive high-quality care that’s just as (and sometimes more) effective as in-office appointments.
