Healthcare Tech Outlook | Thursday, September 30, 2021

To provide treatment options to patients who have a specific insurance provider, RAPPORE, a virtual health care platform specialized in mental health therapy, now lists providers in their network that include United Health Care, Aetna, Cigna, and Blue Cross Blue Shield.

FREMONT, CA: Rappore, a newly launched virtual health care platform focusing on mental health therapy, is now accepting in-network treatment from prominent insurance carriers such as United Health Care, Aetna, Cigna, and Blue Cross Blue Shield.

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), one in every five adults in the United States experienced mental illness in 2019, a figure that has climbed significantly over the last year due to the epidemic (Kff.org). While the United States has over 500,000 mental health physicians, 119 million Americans continue to reside in areas with a mental health shortage, making it an increasing concern. Rappore's technology-enabled methodology intends to address this issue, regarded as one of the country's significant healthcare challenges. Rappore provides patients with accessible, affordable, comprehensive mental health therapy by merging world-class mental healthcare with a practical telehealth solution.

“With the launch of Rappore, we aim to fix what is currently a broken system within our healthcare system,” says Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder Brian Kinsella. “We bring together psychiatry and therapy under one roof, and now, for the price of a copay. Having companies like Aetna and United Health onboard will enable us to service communities across the nation, and we are excited to achieve this growth while continuing to expand our capabilities and network.”

Rappore is the only digital company capable of achieving improved outcomes for mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and relationship and school/work concerns. Its trained clinical staff follows stringent guidelines and provides a range of services, including coordinated care with specialist networks and programs, integrated technology, and industry-leading risk management tools, all of which contribute to excellent patient results. Its technological benefits include speedy intake and onboarding procedures, comprehensive options for various standard and complex conditions, and an economical pricing plan that includes therapy, medication, and access to a highly vetted medical community with diverse specialties.

“In the last year, we’ve seen mental healthcare apps grow tremendously; however, most of these apps are developed with little to no healthcare guidance or regulation, and more importantly, no real human interaction,” says Chief Medical Officer and Co-Founder Frederic Kass, MD. “We’ve been able to create a model, backed by top academic medical centers, that elevates the current standard and leads to superior outcomes by matching patients with prominent medical professionals in a variety of specialties who can provide innovative treatments and high-quality services.”

Rappore operates in six states: New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Maryland, and Florida. This month, the corporation is launching a BIPOC process group to help BIPOC groups facing particular problems and systemic injustice. The company has ambitious expansion aspirations and is now raising capital to fund projects such as expanding its clinical personnel, developing unique data gathering and outcome measurement tools, and increasing education and awareness throughout the medical and patient sectors.
