Telepsychiatry Brings Appointments to You. Telepsychiatry is a subspecialty of telemedicine, which allows health care to be provided from a distance using technology such as videoconferencing. Through telepsych, mental health appointments such as psychiatric evaluations, therapy sessions, education appointments, or medication management can be performed via videoconferencing. These appointments are live interactions between the client and the provider.
We understand some of the most common barriers to mental health treatment are: transportation issues, difficulty taking time off from work, and lack of childcare. Ziks Health Services will directly remove these barriers. The appointments can be held at any location, meaning the appointments come to the client. Time is saved because travel is not required. If you have internet access through computer or smartphone, you can participate in a telepsych appointment.
At this time, our telepsychiatry services our offered to our self-pay patients. We are currently in the process of credentialing with most commercial/private insurance carriers. We will update this section as we are credentialed.
