Telehealth

What is telehealth?

Telehealth provides a Secure and HIPAA compliant platform for us to meet virtually, like FaceTime or Skype.

What are the benefits of telehealth?

Convenience.

No transportation time or costs. 

No need to take time off of work. 

Eliminate child/elder/family care issues.

Is it HIPAA Compliant?

Yes. We use a platform called ZOOM that meets all HIPAA requirements to protect your confidentiality, and does not store any information nor require any protected health information.

 

Will my insurance cover it?

You will want to check your insurance benefits to ensure coverage. You can do this by calling the number on the back of your insurance card. Most insurance plans do cover this option. MN legislature requires insurance companies to cover Telehealth.

Can I still do family or couples counseling?

Yes. They would either join you with the same device, or if they are not with you, we will send them a different meeting invite for their own screen.

Is the session recorded?

No. Telehealth appointments are not recorded and are strictly confidential.

COVID-19 Update

During this pandemic and beyond, Gail Yost and Associates is now offering telehealth/virtual visits for your convenience and care. We understand that times like this can be challenging on many levels and want to be sure that you feel supported. Please make sure to read the CDC website at cdc.gov to learn more about symptoms and additional information regarding risks and precautions.

At this point, with risk of infection still fairly low but growing, this measure is an attempt at social responsibility – an act of care for the wider community to which we belong. By taking precautions not to spread the virus, we are helping to ensure that hospitals are not stretched to capacity and those who need the most care can receive it.

Thank you,
