Online mental health medication benefits

Online mental health medication services are more convenient, comfortable, and often more affordable than in-person doctor visits. Here are just some of the substantial benefits that online mental health doctor visits offer:

  • Affordability

    Mental health doctor visits can be costly, and some health insurance plans don't fully cover  visit or medication costs. Many prescribing physicians in private practice charge the same fee for in-person or online sessions. Our online visits are more affordable than most in-person visits.

  • Convenience

    With mental health medical visits online, you can speak to a board-certified doctor whenever and wherever you are most comfortable.

    In-person doctor visits to request mental health medication often have limited appointment availability. There is also often a wait before your first appointment. If you are seeking emotional support during a difficult time, availability and timeliness are crucial. You can speak to one of our prescribing doctors online and get the support you need as soon as today.

    There is no need to take extra time off of work to travel to an in-person appointment. With travel time not being an issue, it is easy to get mental health care that fits your schedule.

  • Accessibility

    If you live in an area where nearby healthcare options are scarce, you can easily access a mental health professional from the comfort and convenience of your home.

    Our mental health medication program lets you see a licensed doctor who practices anywhere in the state you live in, so you’re not limited by geography.

  • Reduced stigma

    Fortunately, the stigma surrounding mental health and getting care for mental health conditions is decreasing. However, with online healthcare platforms, your sessions are simply between you and your doctor.

    Online care makes it easy to treat mental disorders with complete privacy if you choose to. The ease of access and scheduling flexibility that comes with online medical visits make it even easier to keep doctor visits private.

  • Diverse doctors

    With online mental health care, you have access to a diverse selection of board certified doctors, so you can find the one that best fits your needs. Our online doctors have a wide range of expertise in various specialties and treatment modalities within various types of communities. 

  • One platform

    Our platform makes it easy to get mental health medication and online therapy within the same app. If one of our licensed therapists recommends medication for you, our care team makes it easy to get in contact with one of our board licensed medical doctors.

    Our physicians can assist with a mental health diagnosis and prescribe medication. This can save you the effort of having to be referred to a physician outside of the therapy practice and wait a longer time before your first session. Likewise, our prescribing physicians can assist you with a therapy referral.

Mental health medication FAQs

  • How much do online mental health medication consultations cost?

    The cost of an online medical consultation will vary depending on the telehealth platform and your insurance status. We accept patients with or without insurance. Most patients with in-network insurance pay $30 or less to speak with one of our physicians. For self-pay patients, a mental health medication consultation costs $129. This is less than the typical cost at an in-person clinic.

  • Does medication help mental illness?

    Medication does not cure mental illness, however, it can be helpful in making symptoms more manageable. The goal of medication is to reduce your symptoms to a point where they do not severely impact your daily life and to help you return to a functioning level.

  • Can online therapists prescribe medication?

    No, online therapists cannot prescribe medication. However, our online therapists can refer you to one of our prescribing doctors for a mental health medication consultation within the same platform, to get on medications or refill existing mental health medications.

    Please note, our doctors are unable to prescribe controlled substances or scheduled medications.

    If you have any questions about our therapy offering, please call us at 1-800-221-540 or email us at [email protected].

  • What is better, therapy or medication?

    Therapy and medication are both effective in treating mental health concerns, but are most effective when used in combination. If therapy alone is not working for you, it may be helpful to explore mental health medication options in conjunction with your therapy treatment services. Medication can help therapy treatment be even more effective for you.

  • Can I request mental health medication without a referral?

    Yes, you can book an appointment with one of our prescribing doctors without a referral to discuss mental health medication. After an evaluation, our doctors will discuss options with you and send a mental health medication prescription to your local pharmacy, if you qualify.

  • How long does mental health medication take to work?

    It can take up to 4 to 8 weeks for mental health medication to fully take effect. If by this time, you have seen little mood improvement or symptoms have become unbearable, speak to your doctor about other medication options.

  • What do doctors prescribe for mental health problems?

    Some psychiatric medications that doctors commonly prescribe include antidepressant medications, antipsychotic medications, and mood stabilizers. Commonly prescribed antidepressants to treat anxiety disorders, depression, bipolar disorder, and other mental disorders include selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs), and monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs).

  • How can I get mental health medicine?

    You can get mental health medicine by speaking with a board-certified doctor. Our doctors can prescribe mental health medicine online after an initial evaluation. Book an appointment today to get started.

  • Does Medicare cover mental health visits?

    Medicare does offer mental health coverage, including preventative mental health and therapy. Medicare Part B covers preventive mental health services, including depression screenings, alcohol misuse screenings, and wellness visits. It also can cover counseling, individual and group therapy sessions, and mental health evaluation and diagnoses. There are certain eligibility requirements, so make sure to check your health insurance plan for details.

  • Does Medicaid cover mental health medication?

    Medicaid does cover mental health services. Coverage varies by state and health insurance plan, so make sure to check with your provider about the services covered in your state.

    Counseling services, therapy sessions, social work services, and medication used to treat mental illnesses are all examples of mental health services that could be covered by your Medicaid plan.

  • Do you offer treatment for mental health conditions?

    Our doctors have the ability to refill non-controlled substance medications for common conditions such as anxiety & depression. Diagnosing mental health conditions is a little bit trickier and depends on a person's personal situation. We recommend booking an appointment - if we are not able to help, we will not charge you.

    If you have specific questions about whether or not we could assist your specific condition, please call 1-800-221-5140 or email [email protected].
