Q&A Regarding Your Appointments During COVID-19
As the need to practice social distancing continues during this new coronavirus pandemic (and COVID-19, the disease it causes), our healthcare guidelines are continually changing and protocols being updated.
Here are some questions and answers about appointments with our therapists during the next few weeks while social distancing and “shelter in place” orders are in effect:
- Are the Chesapeake Health Care Mental Health offices open?
- Are you taking new clients?
- How can I make an appointment using telemedicine or an in-office appointment?
You can call one of the mental health sites listed on the Locations tab that is closest to your home and ask to make an appointment.
- What about school-based appointments? Are you still seeing those clients?
Your therapist should have already reached out to you to discuss using telehealth appointments as an alternative to school-based appointments. If you have not been in touch with the therapist, please call the office where you would normally take your child to appointments.
- Can I still get my prescription medications?
Yes, your doctor or nurse practitioner will continue to schedule appointments and prescribe your medication. Your appointments can be via telemedicine or an in-office visit.
- Will I still see the same therapist or prescriber I have always seen?
- Will my child still receive PRP services?
Yes. PRP services will also be provided via telehealth or an alternative method during social distancing requirements. Please call your office of care for more information.
Please make sure your providers have your up-to-date contact information, so they can easily notify you of any changes.
