How We're Addressing COVID-19
What you need to know as the pandemic evolves.
In our rapidly changing environment due to COVID-19, A Balanced Life LLC continues to offer online services. We want everyone to stay physically and mentally healthy during this unprecedented time. Please look at our information for online services, as well as our full COVID-19 policy, which covers exposure prevention, telehealth policy, and precautions for providers, consumers, and children.
Providers at A Balanced Life LLC have an account with a HIPAA compliant Telehealth service called Doxy. Your provider will email you an invitation to the doxy.me account several minutes before your session is scheduled to start and connect with you when you enter the virtual waiting room. You will need a smartphone, tablet, or laptop with a camera and a decent internet connection.
A Balanced Life LLC’s policies regarding precautions against the coronavirus will remain as follows until further notice:
