79% of our patients feel and function better based on validated outcome measures over the last 10 years. Although we can’t guarantee the outcome for any individual, we know that the process we have developed and refined over the last 40 years consistently helps our patients to make meaningful improvements. Our data for our online services is slightly better than for our onsite services before the pandemic and attendance is better with fewer cancellations and missed appointments. There are a number of studies that document how the convenience of online treatment improves attendance and most likely this also contributes to better outcomes.
Our online services have significantly improved our patients access to treatment particularly in underserved communities. 85% of our patients prefer the safety, privacy and comfort of home, greater flexibility of scheduling, time and money saved, reduced stress and easy access they experience with online treatment. Best of all they can be confident that they will also feel and function better. Patients who receive psychiatry /medication management services love the efficiency of online treatment. Many of them used to drive from 30 minutes to 2 hours or more for their 15 -20 minute follow up sessions. Now they receive the same services from the comfort and safety of home.
It doesn’t matter that online services are convenient and effective unless they are affordable too.
This year 96% of our patients use their health insurance to pay for services and their average cost per session is $31.00. A foundation for a Best Fit is affordability. Prior to scheduling we verify your insurance and we highly recommend that you do the same. Based on the information we receive from your insurance company we will let you know the cost of the copay, if you have a deductible and the approximate cost for services until the deductible is met. When you have this information then you can decide if you want to schedule or not. For your convenience we have multiple options for payment through our portal which meets health care and banking requirements for security and privacy. Payment options in the portal include auto payment and ongoing payment by credit card and soon by check. Some patients prefer to mail payments by check or credit card and we will continue to accept these payments as well.
