  • How much do the visits cost?
    How much do the visits cost?

    Just like medical appointments at LCH, the cost varies depending on whether you have health insurance or provide information about your income and household size. Our Patient Service Representatives can tell you what your specific cost will be for each type of visit.  LCH never turns someone away based on their inability to pay.

  • Do I need to be an existing primary care patient?
    Do I need to be an existing primary care patient?

    No, anyone 14 and older is welcome to register & schedule an appointment.

  • How soon can I be seen?
    How soon can I be seen?

    Just give us a call or ask while you are at LCH for any of our other services- we will have someone available to see you the same or next day.  We also have behavioral health services through Telehealth. Telehealth connects patients and their therapist or behavioral health consultant through technology instead of being in the same room. It will feel like a conversation on Zoom, Facetime, WhatsApp, and other video chat platforms that you may be using with family and friends, but your information and privacy is protected just like if you saw us in the office.

Behavioral Health and Telehealth

Common Questions about virtual BHC visits through Telehealth.

What does a Telehealth visit for behavioral health look like at LCH?
Telehealth looks the same as our in-person mental health at LCH. The only difference is that the visit is conducted virtually through a screen.

Why do patients like Telehealth BHC visits?
Telehealth visits give our patients more flexibility. And our patients can continue their appointments even when there are barriers to care such as transportation and childcare.

What are some ways to best prepare yourself for a BHC Telehealth visit?
Make sure you have a strong internet connection. And pick a designated, quiet, confidential space in your home. If you have other family members in the house during your scheduled visit, let them know that you are unavailable during your appointment. You can even put a sign on the door to help remind them.
