Online Psychiatric Care
Because the best couch is at home
For insurance patients: our physicians are in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Healthcare, Oscar, Cigna, Aetna, GHI/Emblem and Magellan. We do not participate in Medicaid or joint Medicare/Medicaid plans. To get started, schedule a new appointment and choose the "Insurance" option. Next, enter your insurance information as directed. We will verify your benefits prior to your appointment.
If you're not using insurance: For Drs. Nagel and Osborne, New (first) appointments are $250, and Follow-up appointments are $150. For Dr. Buch, New appointments are $350 and Follow up appointments are $200.
*Additional costs: Prior authorizations are charged $50. Any detailed forms that patients request that the doctor fill out are charged $200. Simple notes or letters confirming a diagnosis or treatment are free of charge. Doctors will not fill out disability paperwork unless treatment has been established for at least one month.
*Cancellation/No Show fees: At Skypiatrist, your appointment time is guaranteed. We never double-book patients. Unfortunately, late cancelations cause holes in the schedule for which we have to charge. For new appointments, there is a $100 charge for canceling within 24 hours of the appointment time, or a $150 charge for missing the appointment without notice. For follow up appointments, there is a $50 charge for canceling within 12 hours of the appointment time, or a $75 charge for missing the appointment without notice.
