Welcome to Alaska Telepsychology!

 

now accepting patients

Alaska Telepsychology is the first Alaskan private mental health practice to offer both traditional and telepsychology services in our state. Patients attend appointments in our physical office in Anchorage or use a smartphone, computer, or tablet to meet their clinician on an encrypted videoconferencing platform. Our technology protects personal health information and complies with state and federal regulations.

We are preferred providers for Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Meritain, and EBMS. Services are available in Spanish and American Sign Language.

Advantages of Telepsychology

We provide psychotherapy and psychological testing to Alaskan youth and adults anywhere in our great state. Advantages include:

  • Alaskans helping Alaskans,

  • zero travel time to attend appointments,

  • flexible scheduling, including nights & week-ends,

  • access for individuals in both urban and rural areas,

  • access for individuals with mobility or medical restrictions, &

  • reduced costs.

Insurance Coverage

On June 21, 2016, Alaska Governor Bill Walker signed SB 74 into law expanding telemedicine in Alaska to clinical psychologists. The governor also signed HB 234, which requires insurance companies to cover telehealth visits the same as office visits. Alaska Statute 08 requires all mental health professionals practicing in Alaska to be licensed in our state. All of our clinicians are licensed in Alaska and understand the unique challenges of urban and rural life in our state.
