Effective November 1, 2018, independently licensed master’s level clinicians will also be able to bill for Telemental Health (TMH) psychotherapy services, giving members expanded access to behavioral health services throughout the state of Idaho. TMH services are delivered via a secure two-way, real time interactive TMH system with both audio and video components. Based on the individual needs of the member, the Clinician determines if TMH is the appropriate modality for the member at the time of service. The member can receive TMH services at the office of a practitioner, at a hospital, or at another private, secure location the member chooses, such as their personal residence.
