Telehealth For ABA Helps Maintain Critical Connections

Many people who need ABA therapy benefit from coming into the office for care. Yet, telehealth for ABA has proven to be highly effective and improves access for many people who do not have another method of getting care.

The pandemic helped shed light on the importance of connection — especially virtual connection — to clients. For many providers, offering telehealth services has become critical to maintaining valuable connections and continuing care.

Is Telehealth a Viable Solution?

The use of telehealth initially created several concerns for providers. Gray areas regarding insurance coverage, reimbursements, consent and documentation were not fully understood when ABA and telehealth became more readily used.

It is true that these areas involve careful attention and perhaps a different approach to fulfilling the requirements than in-office visits. However, they can be effective and, more so, completely acceptable when it comes to insurance provider coverage.

It is important to consider that additional clarity may be needed before offering ABA telehealth services. For example, it may be necessary to obtain authorizations to move in this direction. It is also essential to ensure that the care and treatment you offer are coded properly. In short, while there are some differences in the way the process works, ABA therapy organizations can still confidently offer telehealth services.
