We use a url based website link that is designed for medical video sessions. It is HIPAA compliant meaning that all sensitive patient data and video sessions are secure according to Federal regulations.
Medwin Telehealth Counseling uses Headway to bill insurance claims. The insurance that is accepted is Aetna, Cigna, Oscar Health, Oxford Health, United Health Care, and NJ Horizon BCBS. Headway will contact you to get your payment and insurance information using secured credit card payments on line to pay the copay or out of pocket expenses.
If you have other health insurance that covers mental health counseling, you will be asked to pay for the session directly to Medwin Counseling via credit card, and then Medwin Counseling will give you a statement to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
The initial session is one hour. Subsequent sessions are usually 45 minutes. If a phone session is needed between video sessions it usually is about 15-20 minutes long.
It really depends on what the issues are. Some issues can be resolved in a few months. Others, especially challenges that stem from deep seated childhood problems, may take longer. After your first session or two, you will have a better idea of the work you would like to do and how long it may take.
We usually meet once a week. On occasion during very intense times, we may meet two times a week as needed. Sometimes a phone session can be done in between video sessions. As you learn coping skills and feel more comfortable handling your challenges, we will then go to every two weeks, then every month, and sometimes every few months as a "tune up."
