Webinar Package: Is Tele-Mental Health Right For Your Practice? Now is the Time!
If you have ever considered getting started with Telehealth, NOW is the time! And this webinar (and accompanying Toolkit) will provide you with everything you need to know. This exciting webinar is being brought to you by NYSPA’s Telehealth Legislative Sub-Committee who helped pass legislation getting insurance carriers to reimburse telemental health services, beginning in 2016. In an effort to emphasize the importance of this achievement and to encourage members to begin practicing telehealth, the Committee wanted to assist NYSPA membership in becoming more familiar with Telepractice so you can take full advantage of the upcoming changes in insurance reimbursement. Come learn what telehealth is all about, what you need to get started, and how to use it ethically, effectively, and creatively to expand your practice and increase your revenue. This instructional webinar and “toolkit” are full of information on regulations, guidelines, ethics, and all the practical things you need to know like technical advice, which platforms to choose (and what they cost), sample consent form, and several sets of “best practice” resources from the experts to ensure you are successful, right from the start.
Includes a one hour, fifteen minute streaming webinar presentation, plus 14 downloadable resources.
