Rappore, a new-to-market virtual health care platform specializing in mental health therapies, now offers in-network treatment through leading insurance providers including United Health Care, Aetna, Cigna and Blue Cross Blue Shield.
According to the National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI), 1 in 5 U.S. adults experienced mental illness in 2019, a number that has only increased this past year by the pandemic (Kff.org). While there are over 500,000 mental health clinicians in the U.S., 119M Americans still live in mental health shortage areas, making it a growing challenge. Rappore’s tech-enabled model aims to solve this issue, which is considered one of the largest healthcare burdens in America. By combining world-class mental healthcare with a convenient, telehealth solution, Rappore delivers accessible, affordable, and comprehensive mental health therapies to patients.
“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 on-board 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.”
“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 is the only digital company that can achieve superior outcomes for mental health problems including, but not limited to anxiety, depression, eating disorders and PTSD, relationship issues and school/work issues. Its experienced clinical staff has rigorous protocols and offers an array of services including coordinated care with specialty networks and programs, integrated technology, and leading risk management tools to ensure superior patient outcomes. Its technology advantages include rapid intake and onboarding procedures, robust offerings for various and complex ailments, and an affordable pricing model that incorporates therapy, medication, and accessibility to a highly vetted medical community with multiple specialties.
Rappore offers licensed mental healthcare clinicians in six states: New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Maryland, and Florida. The company is rolling out a BIPOC process group this month to provide support for BIPOC communities who are faced with unique challenges and systematic inequality. The company has plans for exponential growth and is currently undergoing funding to support initiatives including scaling its clinical staff, further developing proprietary data collection and outcome measurement tools, and driving education and awareness across the medical and patient markets.
