It’s easy to participate in a telemedicine appointment from anywhere.

Your mental health is more important than ever, and so is your safety. Telemedicine is a mental health online video service that is private, effective, and meets the standard of care for traditional outpatient appointments. Community Psychiatry has been offering telemedicine appointments for over six years, providing an easy way for new and ongoing patients to see providers without leaving their home’s comforts.

Does Insurance Cover Telemedicine? Yes.

Medications may be prescribed via telemedicine

As a registered DEA practitioner, Community Psychiatry may issue controlled substance prescriptions to patients, as long as the prescription is issued for a legitimate medical purpose in the usual course of professional practice by a practitioner engaged in treating the patient via telemedicine during the COVID-19 public health emergency.  

Community Psychiatry has always had the ability to prescribe a controlled substance via telemedicine technology as long as we have previously conducted an in-person evaluation with the patient. During this health crisis, the new guidance by the DEA removes that in-person evaluation requirement.
