Frequently asked questions

How do patient referrals work on Talkspace?

When patients sign up for Talkspace Psychiatry, we match them directly with available prescribers, doing our best to accommodate specific requests (e.g. gender or language preferences). Patients who pay out-of-pocket may be referred by their therapist, or choose to sign up only for psychiatry. Patient referrals may also come from our partnerships with health plans and employers.

How are psychiatry sessions conducted on Talkspace?

All psychiatry sessions are conducted through Live Video Sessions on the Talkspace platform. Between sessions, you can communicate with your patients in the chat room, whether to check in or ask clarifying questions. All full sessions (initial and follow up) must be done over LVS.

How does prescribing work?

Talkspace works with an e-prescription service called DoseSpot. You can easily prescribe medication (excluding controlled substances) through DoseSpot, which will send your patients’ prescriptions directly to their pharmacies.

Do I have to submit claims?

Nope! Talkspace manages patient eligibility and works directly with insurance carriers as needed. We’ll reimburse you directly for services rendered based on completed, scheduled appointments.

Is the Talkspace platform secure?

Yes, our platform is HIPPA-compliant and meets the stringent security requirements to ensure patient information is protected and secure.
