FISHERS, Ind., Aug. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TelaCare, a national telehealth technology and services company, announced today that it has added behavioral health services in addition to its telehealth services on TelaCare, one of the fastest growing telemedicine companies according to Telemedicine Magazine. Patients can now speak to U.S. board-certified counselors on the TelaCare app via scheduled appointments. They're finding doctors who can treat them at any time and any place, in the comfort of their own homes – through video conferencing, text messaging, even specialized apps that enable users to get the information they need at a moment of crisis.
"Every year one in four people will deal with a mental health disorder, yet less than half of these individuals will actually receive treatment. Mental healthcare is in desperate need of real solutions and TelaCare can bridge that gap. Unlike other telemedicine providers who charge an additional consult fee for this type of service, we will provide it at no additional charge to our members, said TelaCare's CEO Larry Jones. It has become one of the most successful of all the telemedicine applications because its practitioners don't need to touch their patients to treat them."
TelaCare's behavioral health services is available to all current and future members. Immediate access to a licensed therapist will be available nationwide September 1, 2017. This will also make TelaCare's reach larger than its competitors and less expensive.
