C. What is a Consult? What is Educational or Expert Advice?


Unlike therapy, consults do not include the full process of diagnosis and treatment. Educational consults are like getting an expert's advice, but without the agreement to diagnose or enter treatment. In most cases, providers of educational consults have no responsibility for case management or follow up.


D. What is Therapy? What is Psychotherapy? What is Treatment?


In general, the term "therapy" or "treatment" is associated with the process of healing or recovering. Psychotherapy is mostly an interpersonal and personal process which aims to help people understand and better cope with conditions, emotions or perceptions. A Therapeutic Relationship exists when a licesed healthcare provider is contracted by a client to provide diagnosis and/or treatment. 


E. The initial evaluation: Consult, treatment or referral?


Healthcare service usually starts with an evaluation process. The initial evaluation may take 1-3 sessions. In case the initial evaluation also requires diagnostic testing, the specific purpose, duration and cost of such assessments should be discussed ahead of time. At the end of the initial evaluation, findings, alternatives and recommendations are discussed. Referrals, treatment or consults may also be offred. See: Informed Consent.


F. Fees, appointments, procedures


The cost of in-office or online office service is determined by the clinician or the medical insurance company. Initial online and telephone consults are often offred for FREE. In case a third party is covering this service, a client's signature and/or insurance company and policy details may be needed to indicate agreement to process the claim and forward the reimbursement to the provider. Some clinicians also offer secure processing of credit card payment online. Consult the selected provider directly to get information about service rates, schedule and other details. 


Note: Since July 2004, CPT code 0074T allows clinicians in the USA to submit claims for professional services which are provided to patients online. Consult your provider and/or insurance company directly to find more about their specific billing policies. 

G. About service providers

Clinicians are responsible to post service price, details, updated and accurate data. Clinicians are directly responsible for the quality of their work, management of their web office, billing, treatment, schedule, and all other service activities.  OnlineClinics itself DOES NOT provide healthcare services. Company is NOT involved in any way with the content of members' web sites or quality of services, which are provided directly by the clinicians to their visitors.
