Have You Tried Therapy Through Telehealth?

So here's what I'm thinking. A lot of therapists won't even bill your insurance company because your insurance company wants too much detail about what you are being seen in therapy for so they can decide later how much of a risk you are.

Teletherapy is a great option because of the pandemic and it's certainly more needed than ever, but how can you be sure companies aren't using it to gather information about you for insurance companies? This is one instance where I would definitely feel safer meeting over unconventional teletherapy means. Has anyone heard anything about protecting patient privacy during teletherapy?

Here's some more info about telehealth and telemedicine:

TeleTherapy hickup #Depression #Anxiety

#teletherapy #Poem Last week had a TeleTherapy with my Psychologist. I felt really let down when she said: "Everybody is living this way" (anxious, afraid, etc). Those words just highlighted that I am really not well. I did want to tell her off, so I wrote a poem.

In the shadows of COVID-19

by Mary McCannon

The crisis is too plain to see,

It affects us all, you and me.

Anxiety is painfully heightened,

Grip of depression is tightened.

Some are living, some are dying alone,

Imagine that one of them is your own.

There is nobody to hold their hand,

This is real, I need you to understand.

Your spoken words underline

How unwell I am in this time.

At the root of my problem is you,

Feeling exactly the same, like I do.

We’ve got a lot on our plate,

This is our today, our fate.

None of us were prepared,

Yet, you just could have said:

“Emotions coming in a steady stream,

And we will keep working as a team.

But no matter who we are, or what we do,

We’re in this together, to see it through”

Budapest, 2020. April 27th
