Fair coverage and reimbursement for tele-health therapy sessions
During this time of COVID-19, PsiAN is gathering information on insurance plans that are not full covering tele-mental health. Perhaps they are failing to cover tele-health therapy sessions at all or requiring that any tele-therapy be conducted through proprietary, exclusive networks.
Please complete this survey, focusing on ONE health insurance plan at a time. If you've encountered issues or obstacles with more than one plan, please return and complete the survey again for each additional plan.
Are you or your patients aware of insurance plans that offer:
no coverage at all for tele-health therapy sessions
telehealth allowed only for physical health conditions -- mental health is excluded
telehealth therapy covered only if offered by in-network provider
telehealth therapy only allowed if conducted through a proprietary network, such MDLive or LiveHealthOnline
lower reimbursement for tele-health therapy session than for in-office therapy session
If YES to any of the above, please fill out the following information:
Small Group - private (private employer, with less than 50 employees)
Small Group - public (public employer, with less than 50 employees)
Large Group - private (private employer/union, with more than 50 employees)
Large Group - public (governmental, city, public school, with more than 50 employees)
Name of Employer/Plan Sponsor:
Name of claims administrator (for ex, Anthem, BCBS-Illinois, UMR, etc):
