Considering a telehealth-only practice from your home? Here are some preliminary issues to consider.

Considering a telehealth-only practice from your home?  Here are some preliminary issues to consider.

Therapists and other mental health clinicians have relied on telehealth to continue to provide services during these difficult times. Some are working from home, and find that this works pretty well. Some are considering closing their brick-and-mortar office and transitioning to a home office, providing telehealth-only services.  MHConcierge wonders whether and how this will work, and if there might be unforeseen consequences.  To get help with these questions, I posted questions on several local and national listservs. I also sent questions to Provider Relations staff at 5 Minnesota insurance companies: BCBS MN, Medica/UHC/Optum, HealthPartners, UCare and PreferedOne.
