Do you need support for an illness or disorder, but can’t make it to an in-person appointment? Are you a busy stay-at-home or working parent, and don’t have time to schedule or keep doctor appointments? Do you lack health insurance, or does your health insurance fail to fully cover your medical needs?

Telehealth (or telemedicine) is a fairly recent innovation that helps facilitate health-related services for patients via live video conferencing. Thanks to modern technology, just about everyone in the United States has a smartphone or tablet capable of video chat. This easy access to video calls has revolutionized the health industry, allowing healthcare providers to interact with patients through a phone call.

You can use your smartphone to consult with a nurse, physician, or  mental health professional to receive ongoing care when your primary care physician is unavailable, get a prescription refilled, review test results or medical summaries, or have a remote therapy or counseling appointment.

In the United States, approximately 80 million people have inadequate health insurance or no health insurance at all. Telehealth can be more affordable for clients paying out of pocket.

Telehealth appointments can help if you:

  • lack health insurance or recently lost coverage
  • Have a health problem that isn’t covered by your insurance
  • don’t have the right type of medical professional nearby
  • lack the time or resources to use public transportation
  • are physically disabled
  • live in a remote area
  • lack the time or resources to get to an in-person medical appointment
  • want the ease of a video conference appointment

The convenience of scheduling an appointment through a phone app cannot be understated. Quickly pick a date and time, and you’ve scheduled your online appointment. There’s no need to get ready, or even leave your bed or couch. If you have social anxiety or phobias that cause you to avoid social interactions, telehealth makes it easier for you to get therapy or medication.
