To better serve the needs of people in the community, health care services are now available by interactive video communications and/or by the electronic transmission of information. This may assist in the evaluation, diagnosis, management and treatment of mental health concerns. This process is referred to as "telehealth.” This means that you will be evaluated and treated by Donny Baca, MA, LPC from a distant location.
Before setting up your Telehealth account, it is important to ensure your specific behavioral health insurance plan will cover Behavioral Health Telehealth services.
Participating Insurance Companies:
- Magellan Health
- Military OneSource

Telehealth sessions will be conducted using the audio/visual software VSee and encrypted email communications will be sent via Hushmail.
VSee is HIPPA secure which means it uses strong (256 bit AES) encryption (required by HIPPA). VSee protects data privacy in that all audio/video communication is securely encrypted and transmitted from point-to-point such that even VSee does not have access to any identifiable health information that may be communicated. VSee offers the HIPPA-required Business Associate Agreement (BBA) where VSee agrees to be responsible for keeping all patient information secure and to immediately report any breach of personal health information. Additional information about VSee security can be viewed at https://vsee.com/hipaa.
Hushmail is HIPPA secure. When using the connection between your computer and the Hushmail server it is protected by encryption. That means if someone is eavesdropping on your internet connection, they will not be able to read the traffic that you send to the Hushmail website.
