If you are interested in tele-health counseling options via HIPAA-protected Zoom, Facetime or phone call, please reach out to Emily Barnard or Melea White via email, who will offer you the appropriate paperwork and instructions on this and to schedule a meeting. Utilizing this option will mean you have access to a quiet and private space from which to engage in your meeting. Depending on what state you are currently in, state regulations may prevent us from providing direct care. If this happens, we will do what we can to help you access support in your area. 

Coe students seeking therapy services from Tanager Place have two options for scheduling a tele-health meeting:

If you are in a state other than Iowa, we recommend you utilize your local resources when possible. If you are unsure where to start and have access to health insurance, call your customer service number on the back of your insurance card to see what providers in your area accept your insurance and are accepting new patients. Many companies are waiving co-pays and reducing fees associated with services during this time. If you do not have health insurance or are underinsured, there may be options you have for free or sliding fee scale services in your area.

You can also, "Like" and follow the Coe College Health Services Facebook page for information and updates.
