We know that there’s widespread concern in our community about the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), and we want you to know that your health is our top priority at Iowa Family Counseling.
Due to this, Iowa Family Counseling is temporarily transitioning to telehealth sessions to ensure that clients continue to have access to care, and to limit exposure. Research shows that this platform can be just as effective as in-person appointments, and we can continue your and/or children’s care without interruption during this time of social distancing. Most insurances cover this service and it was announced March 17th, that those with Wellmark/BCBS insurance, out of pocket costs (including copay and coinsurance) are being temporarily suspended for at least 90 days for telehealth services!
During this time, stress can be amplified by viewing media coverage of this pandemic. Therefore, I encourage you to limit your (and your child/rens) media exposure and utilize resources that are more calming, redirective and less sensationalized.
For up to date, accurate information regarding COVID-19, please refer to the CDC’s dedicated 2019-ncov website for additional information. Maintain awareness by checking the official communications from the Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization.
