UDCC-ONLINE

UDCC COVID-19 UPDATE

Updated 08/12/2020

IN-PERSON Sessions and VIRTUAL WAIT ROOM

Contactless in-person sessions will be available throughout the semester. However, we will not have a physical wait room open to the public. We will send you a private and secure instant message through our online portal to inform you that we are ready to enter your session. You will get an email alert that will connect you to the message. 

ONLINE Sessions 

Online sessions will continue throughout the Fall Semester. You can access the portal at http://udcc.clientsecure.me. Please remember that we are responsible for confidentiality and privacy on our side, and you are responsible for maintaining it on your side. We will provide you with the best practices for teletherapy when you schedule a session; or available upon request.

OUT-OF-STATE ONLINE Sessions

Some states allowed interstate services during the time of quarantine. However, due to the ever-shifting legal ground, we will no longer provide out-of-state sessions. We can help with out-of-state referrals if desired.

Masks & Distance 

We will follow UD’s requirements for wearing masks in public areas. Once you are securely in the Therapy room, maintaining a distance of 6 feet, you may remove your mask, as is desired by you and your therapist.

 

Additional Resources

FINDING LOCAL CLINICIANS: 

If you have insurance, you can look at the back of the insurance card to find the customer representative (not customer service) number. You can call that number and ask for practitioners in your network in your area who are accepting new patients.
