HOW DO I KNOW IF MY CHILD NEEDS SPEECH AND/OR LANGUAGE THERAPY?
It is important to understand children learn/grow at different rates. You may start to notice your child is not speaking as much as his/her peers, the child may become frustrated when you're unable to understand them and display frequent tantrums, unfamiliar listeners may need the primary caregiver to interpret what the child is saying, you may see speech sound errors carryover into your child's reading and writing skills, or your child may be falling behind in school and display significant reading/writing difficulties.
We recommend contacting your pediatrician, child's teacher, childcare provider and expressing your concerns. They can be a great resource for information on how your child is growing outside of your home.
If you're still concerned about your child's speech or language, call (270) 938-0101 today for a free phone consultation with a licensed speech language pathologist.
HOW LONG AND HOW FREQUENT ARE THERAPY VISITS?
Therapy is always tailored to the unique needs of the individual. We typically recommend 30-45-minute sessions. Depending on the type and severity of deficits, therapy is recommended at 1x, 2x, or 3x per week. The scope and duration of therapy will be discussed in consultation with the clinician during the review meeting.
HOW LONG WILL MY CHILD NEED SPEECH/LANGUAGE THERAPY?
The amount of time of which a child will need speech language therapy services is specific to each individual child. Several factors come into play including the severity of the disorder, cooperation and motivation of the child as well the child’s readiness to learn.
DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?
Many of our clients choose to utilize our private pay plan. We are also currently in network with Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield. If you carry other private insurance plans, we can not bill them directly, but you may be able to apply private payments to your out-of-network deductible using a SuperBill. Both private and insurance payments can be paid using your Health Savings Account or Flexible Spending Account. We are unable to accept Medicaid Plans.
If you choose to use your Anthem BCBS insurance for payments, we can verify your eligibility and benefits. Please be mindful that in the event that insurance determines the rendered therapy services are “not covered” or otherwise denied, the patient/guardian will be responsible for all outstanding charges.
WHAT IS A SUPERBILL AND HOW DOES IT HELP?
A superbill is essentially a receipt for services that will contain information your insurance company requires in order to process claims and potentially provide you reimbursement. Upon request, we can assist you with contacting your insurance provider and check eligibility and out-of-network benefits. Please contact us for more information on our therapy service rates or with any other questions.
*Unfortunately, Medicaid does not accept superbills.
