Do you take insurance?
I do not take insurance. I have previously, and in my experience third party payers often dictate how therapy is done. Many private insurances do not provide coverage for speech therapy unless there is a medical necessity, which they dictate. This is typically related to a genetic disorder, traumatic/acquired brain injury, or hearing loss. Frequency is also often dictated by third party payers. Additionally, some insurances will pay for therapy but their deductibles are high. When looking for a therapist, I recommend contacting your insurance directly and asking specific questions about coverage. I recommend asking what diagnosis and treatment codes for speech therapy they cover.
Some insurances offer a specific amount of reimbursement for out-of-network providers. If this is the case, I can provide a Superbill for you to submit to your insurance directly. I have done this myself for my own out-of-network providers.
I try to keep my rates fair for my clients and myself by keeping them relatively close to some specialist co-payments. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have financial hardship as I offer a sliding scale in special circumstances.
What are your rates?
Do you have an office?
I do not have an office. I come directly to you! If driving time is more than 15 minutes there may be an additional fee, but this is something that we can discuss together. I also offer teletherapy services which have been shown to be an effective form of intervention for most children. Because I am licensed in both Massachusetts and North Carolina, I can also provide teletherapy services to MA families and NC families who are not driving distance.
