Telepsychiatry in Texas
Over half of the state’s mental healthcare needs are unmet. Telepsychiatry can help.
Texas is 200+ practitioners short. Are you a psychiatrist with active Texas 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 in East Texas or West Texas, contact us to streamline your ER patient placement process.
Outpatient and Inpatient Coverage
Do you run a hospital or clinic in one of Texas’ 30+ 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.
Texas Medicaid is the 20th best reimburser of telepsychiatry services in the country, and provides an $18.08 telepsychiatry bonus for every visit! Commercial insurances fully reimburse for telepsychiatry in the state of Texas. Medicare also reimburses for telepsychiatry and provides a $24.24 telepsychiatry bonus per visit.
Do you know how much Texas invests in mental health services per capita? Texas ranks 49th, below Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Oklahoma, and above only Idaho and Puerto Rico. Together we are investing in the future generations of Texans.
