Insurance reimbursement may be available for the online therapy, but Dr. Holzmacher does not guarantee that it will be compensated by an insurance carrier. Dr. Holzmacher will not file insurance claims on behalf of online psychotherapy patients, but will provide a diagnosis by e-mail. The diagnosis and office information should be sufficient for most insurance companies to consider the claim. For patients who come to the office in Orlando, each patient is considered individually, due to the complex nature of health insurance. Dr. Holzmacher currently serves as a Medicare & Blue Cross/Blue Shield provider.
Dr. Holzmacher believes that current advances in digital technology offer valuable solutions for both the patient and psychologist. Psychotherapy over the telephone has been performed for many years, and even occasionally requested by insurance companies. Advances in videoconferencing on the internet have made a greater depth of therapeutic communication possible. Similar to a psychotherapy session conducted in person, particular ground rules are necessary. Most people are familiar with the basics, which are reasonably consistent across states. For example, most people think about suicide at some point in their lives, but formulating a plan to do so is another matter entirely. Dr. Holzmacher advises anyone with a plan and intent to commit suicide to call 911 without delay. At the very minimum, call a suicide hotline that is listed in your local phone book. Similarly, most of us have had bouts of anger that can prove embarrassing, both to ourselves, as well as to others. Anger management techniques can be highly effective for improving one’s personal and professional life. While most of us have entertained hostile thoughts, planning to harm or kill someone else is another matter entirely. Unfortunately, therapy has proven to be ineffective for treatment of antisocial personalities. Enforced or willful abstinence from psychopathic behavior is the only effective therapeutic action. Lastly, while Dr. Holzmacher has received training in the treatment of substance abuse, it is not a focus of this website or his practice. Dr. Holzmacher recommends contacting one of the many laudable Alcoholic’s Anonymous-type groups available in every region of the country.
