The incredible physical toll of the COVID-19 pandemic on both patients and health care workers is unmistakable, but the crisis is also having a significant impact on the population as a whole that is sometimes less obvious. With more people experiencing feelings of helplessness, loss, and loneliness during the current health crisis, Capital Health – Behavioral Health Specialists now offers video visit appointments to help current and new patients process and navigate these challenging times.
Video visit appointments allow patients to meet with providers from Capital Health – Behavioral Health Specialists from the safety and convenience of their homes through a secure video connection on their computers or mobile devices. Although they are connected remotely, patients receive the same quality care they would in the office from the same highly trained team of professionals. Out of an abundance of caution for patients and providers, Capital Health – Behavioral Health Specialists has temporarily switched to video visits only, with limited group support options available as well.
Behavioral health video visits are now covered by most major insurances, including Medicare, and in many cases co-pays will not be charged. Referrals from primary care providers are not required.
To schedule a video visit appointment with one of the providers at Capital Health – Behavioral Health Specialists, call 609-689-5725.
Tips for a Great Video Visit
Check your internet connection. Wi-Fi or wired connection is strongly preferred for a great video visit experience.
Use headphones. Cut down on any background noise and help keep the conversation with your health care provider private.
Please be patient! Video visit traffic may be high as we work to provide care for our patients during the current health crisis, so we may run a few minutes behind schedule. We’ll get to you as quickly as possible!
