How it works

Providing behavioral health services to your patients through our Virtual BH Clinic is simple. 

For patients with Mild or Moderate Severity Illness

Virtual Clinic Set Up

Lightyear Health coordinates with your team to integrate into your practice, from billing, to EMR integration, to telemedicine support.

Book an appointment 

Primary Care Physician (PCP) schedules an appointment for a medicare or 65+ medicaid eligible patient with a Behavioral Health Care Manager (BH Care Manager).

Initial Visit 

The Lightyear Health BH Care Manager does an intake exam (as quickly as within 48 hours) via video with all charting notes uploaded directly into the EMR.

Regular patient touchpoints

BH Care Manager checks in with patient throughout the month via video or phone, providing updates to the PCP directly and in the patient chart.

Track progress 

BH Care Managers use a dashboard to track patient trends, consult weekly with the broader BH team and routinely sync with PCPs to make recommendations on care.

Operational support 

Lightyear Health supports your billing and collection for Collaborative Care  (CoCM) 

For more complex patients

Lightyear Health will enroll complex patients in our longitudinal BH specialty clinic which will follow them through primary care and include regular visits with a Psychiatrist, Psychiatric NP or LCSW.
