The health and wellbeing of our clients is very important to us.
While we will continue to fulfill our requirements as a critical infrastructure industry (as defined by the Department of Homeland Security), due to recent recommendations of the Wisconsin Department of Health and independent medical advice, we are moving as many services as possible to telehealth sessions for the foreseeable future.
We realize that some sessions, for various reasons, are not conducive to telehealth. There will be a limited amount of office visits occurring but, for maximum health and safety, we will most likely be limiting these to one session a day and prioritizing them with health and accessibility factors in mind. Your personal judgement is important in considering your own health risks in attending sessions. Stonetree Therapy, in accordance with Wisconsin Department of Health suggestions, will be continuing good hygiene practices in order to reduce the transmission of viruses. Our therapists will continue to wash hands and/or use hand sanitizer between sessions and continue to disinfect our premises.
Insurance and Private Pay
We have been informed by most insurance companies that they are allowing telehealth sessions to be billed as normal office visits until April 30. We are still waiting on updates and/or clarification from one or two insurances so please consult with your therapist to ensure your session will be billed as normal. Private pay sessions will continue to be billed as a normal session.
For more information regarding the extent of recommended distance and whether you should attend therapy please consider these articles:
If you are planning to travel out of the state over the next month, please let your therapist know as a pause in services may be necessary even after in person sessions resume.
Stonetree receives regular updates directly from the Wisconsin Department of Health and may adjust recommendations as the situation changes.
