Confidentiality Concerns and Parent Considerations
What platform is the therapist using to practice tele-counseling?
Note that Face Time, Skype, Whats App, etc., are not HIPAA compliant and therefore do not conform for confidentiality standards.
HIPAA compliant platforms include; Zoom, VSee, and Doxy.me. and others.
- The website will often state if the provider is using a HIPPA compliant platform.
While VA does not require specific training in tele-counseling, the parent ought to consider asking the therapist if they have participated in training specific to tele-counseling.
Tele-counseling can be provided by any licensed provider who holds a VA state license.
It is encouraged that families pay attention to location of provider if they wish to eventually participate in in-person services.
- Unless otherwise stated, providers listed here are within Prince William County.
As stated in the articles linked above, insurance appears to be covering tele-counseling, however it is encouraged that parents still contact their health insurance to ensure tele-counseling is approved and if there are any restrictions.
Providers listed here accept various health insurances.
