We are a private pay center and are not a participating provider with any insurance carriers at this time. Cash, checks, and MasterCard/Visa/ Discover/American Express are all accepted. For those who have a Health Savings Account (HAS or FSA) at your work, you can usually get reimbursement through your HSA or use your HSA credit/debit card as payment. If you choose to pay by credit card a credit card must be on file.
Parents are responsible for submitting all forms to their insurance provider for reimbursement if they choose to do so. Some plans will reimburse for individual and group therapy by a licensed speech and language pathologist. Please contact your health insurance carrier directly to determine whether your child‘s sessions are eligible for reimbursement. You should know that insurance companies often list speech therapy as a reimbursable service but frequently will not provide coverage for children’s speech therapy services, particularly if the therapy is not due to a “medical” condition. Insurance companies typically require a written initial assessment/evaluation. They do not accept information from your child’s IEP or school evaluations. This usually will trigger a denial on the grounds that we are duplicating school services or that the therapy is educational-not medical or rehabilitative in nature. These evaluations can be provided upon request.
