Per Governor Pritzker and current CDC guidance, CCP partially re-opened our offices for in-person sessions as of June 2021 with many safety precautions in place.
However, we are still conducting much of our therapy via telehealth. New clients will have a choice of doing teletherapy via Doxy.me, a HIPAA-protected online service, or having in-person sessions.
Please note that the decision as to whether or not to have an in-person session is a mutual one between both the therapist and the client. If either party feels uncomfortable with an in-person session, telehealth will be utilized. To this end, each individual therapist will be making his/her own decision about if, and when to return to the office, based on his/her own personal situation (individual risk factors, who is living in their household, their own anxiety levels, etc.). For the time being, being open to teletherapy will likely increase your chances of being connected to a therapist quickly.
As healthcare providers, it is important for us to balance the need for providing consistent therapy services, with the need to adhere to public health guidelines designed to keep all of us safe. Some of our therapists are comfortable seeing their clients in the office, while of course taking proper precautions for safety; some have made the decision to continue keeping a social distance from everyone, including their clients, in order to keep both their clients and themselves safe for now; and some therapists are doing a hybrid model, i.e. a combination of both methods.
If you are interested in in-person sessions, our Intake Coordinator will work to match you with one of the CCP therapists who has decided to return to the office, and that therapist will contact you regarding CCP’s Safety Protocol before your first appointment, and will send you a consent form to sign stating that you have read and understood the precautions necessary and possible risks involved in having in-person meetings. CCP requires all of our therapists and clients to be fully vaccinated for in-person sessions, and clients must upload a copy of their vaccination card (front and back) before they may enter the office for the first time.
While you are responsible for checking your own benefits, in our experience most BCBS plans continue to cover telehealth services at an equal rate to in-person sessions.
We look forward to working with you!
