Telepsychiatry in North Carolina
Almost half of the state’s mental healthcare needs are unmet. Telepsychiatry can help.
North Carolina is 20+ practitioners short. Are you a psychiatrist with active North Carolina licensure in good standing? Apply to join 1DocWay’s clinical team.
Do your Emergency Room patients experience long psychiatric boarding times? What if you could find a nearby inpatient bed for every psychiatric patient, with webcam support from admissions departments? If your facility is within a few hundred miles of Charlotte, Raleigh, or Wilmington, contact us to streamline your ER patient placement process.
Outpatient and Inpatient Coverage
Do you run a hospital or clinic in one of North Carolina’s 80+ Healthcare Provider Shortage Areas? Do you refer patients out when you could have an in-house psychiatric specialist? Stay competitive. Recruit your own provider for F/T, P/T, or occasional psychiatry coverage.
Commercial insurances now fully reimburse for tele-psychiatry, and so do Medicare and North Carolina Medicaid. Medicare provides a $24.24 tele-psychiatry bonus per visit, and North Carolina Medicaid provides an $21.25 tele-psychiatry bonus per visit.
Did you know that North Carolina invests more on mental health services per capita than all its neighbors? North Carolina ranks 28th, above Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. Together we are investing in the future generations of North Carolinians.
