Informed Consent


Contact Details

By requesting a tele consultation, you are requesting to enter into a coach / patient relationship with either a therapist or coach who is independently contracted with U ARE HEARD LLC, to participate as a Network Coach.  The consulting Network Coach shall be the actual provider of the professional counseling services to you. While UAREHEARD provides certain technology and administrative services to you and the Network Coach, UAREHEARD does not itself provide the professional coaching services to you.  Therefore, you agree to pay U ARE HEARD on behalf of the Network Coach for the tele coaching at the time they are requested. Fees for sessions are 175.00 for each visit.  They are due the day of a scheduled session.

You agree to the entry of your medical records into the U ARE HEARD computer database that is maintained by U ARE HEARD for the Network Coach and understand that reasonable measures have been taken to safeguard your medical information, in accordance with federal HIPAA standards. U ARE HEARD recognizes your privacy and, in accordance with our Privacy Policy, will not release information to anyone without your written authorization or as required by law, or in accordance with your health insurer’s privacy policy if applicable.

There is no guarantee that you will be treated as a patient by a Network Coach if, for example, a Network Coach determines that your difficulties / condition cannot be properly treated by him/her.

If you are treated by a Network Coach, you have a right to your medical records in accordance with applicable law.

Expected Benefits:

  • Improved access to care by enabling a student to remain in his/her local site (e.g., home, college dorm room) while the coach consults from a distant site.
  • More efficient coaching evaluation and management.

  • The video connection may not work or it may stop during the meeting
