Telehealth

 

To better serve the needs of people in the community, health care services are now available by interactive video communications and/or by the electronic transmission of information. This may assist in the evaluation, diagnosis, management and treatment of mental health concerns. This process is referred to as "telehealth.” This means that you will be evaluated and treated by Donny Baca, MA, LPC from a distant location.


Before setting up your Telehealth account, it is important to ensure your specific behavioral health insurance plan will cover Behavioral Health Telehealth services.
