How Many Sessions are Required for an Initial Evaluation and Treatment Plan?

The first appointment is only part of the initial evaluation process. Your care provider may also request additional material (including questionnaires and assessments). The initial evaluation period includes the first three (3) sessions, which is the time required for a care provider to determine the feasibility of outpatient care and a proposed treatment plan. At that time, if you are in agreement with the treatment plan, your outpatient treatment program will begin.

What Documents Are Required From New Clients?

TCNY requires that all new clients fill-out and sign the (1) telemedicine consent form, (2) new client registration form, and provide copies or pictures of (3) ID card (e.g., drivers license) and (4) insurance card (*front and back*). Please visit the "Patient Forms & Documents" page for links to download these documents and for submission instructions.

TCNY's Convenient & Fast Patient Portal ("MYIO")

All TCNY clients need to sign-up for a patient portal (MYIO) to provide, update and maintain their payment details (e.g., credit or debit card), insurance information and demographic details. When communicating with our intake team, please request that a portal invite either be texted or e-mailed to you. Patient statements (e.g., invoices), receipts and other documentation are provided through the portal on an as-needed basis. In addition, you can pay any patient responsibility balances directly within the MYIO portal.

TCNY's New Integrated Client Payment Process ("Elavon")

Starting 3/6/2023, TCNY will begin utilizing the secure payment processing system (called "Elavon") integrated within our EMR and MYIO patient portal platform. This new method of processing client payments provides a higher level of security and process efficiency for clients, care providers and TCNY's administrative team. Please visit your MYIO (patient portal) to add or update your payment information, and you will be prompted to add or update this information upon log in. If you have any questions, please direct them to our care team using our secure "Contact Us" form (at the bottom of each TCNY web page). You will also be able to make payments for any outstanding balances directly from your MYIO account via the home screen (by clicking "Make a Payment" and following the prompts).

Patient Statements & Refund Requests

You may request a patient statement at any time, including to review an outstanding balance due (or) an overpayment situation where you may be owed a refund. Please visit our “Contact Us” page and either call or e-mail to submit your statement request.

TCNY will upload a system-generated patient statement to your patient portal within one (1) business week of your request, as the administrative team needs to ensure that the latest payments received are properly posted into the system and incorporated into your patient statement.

Refunds are primarily issued after you have completed your course of care with a TCNY provider, or for services completed in the prior calendar year (as each calendar year may have different benefits and deductibles). At your request, refunds can be provided by direct ACH payment, Zelle instant payments or refund to your credit card on file.

Have You Met Your Deductible?

If your out-of-pocket payments have either met or exceeded your deductible for any calendar year, please visit our “Contact Us” page and either call or e-mail to confirm your deductible status. The TCNY administrative team will review your account and advise you of any new payment instructions within three (3) business days.

When Should I Request Prescription Refills?

Prescription refills should be requested during your regularly scheduled sessions for administrative efficiency and expedited processing. Refill requests outside of regularly scheduled sessions are subject to a $50 processing fee (please click on the link above for “Patient Financial Information – Rules & Requirements”), with processing time subject to your doctor's schedule.
