What is speech-language therapy?
Speech- language therapy provides diagnostics, treatment, support and care for individuals (children and adults) who have difficulties with communication, or with eating, drinking and swallowing. The broad term of communication includes language (receptive and expressive), pragmatics and other aspects.
Do you take insurance?
We currently take Tricare, BCBS and are considered out of network with other providers (e.g. Aetna). If approved you will get the reimbursement rate under your out-of-network policy. Our billing department can find out what your benefits are before you start therapy. Once you are receiving therapy, you can submit your claims for reimbursement with the paperwork we provide you.
What does it usually cover?
Each insurance plan is different. Many plans have some type of coverage, but it depends on the policy. Based on the allowable amount, some get 20 sessions per year (plus or minus a few). Some get 70% of each session, while others get 100%, and some don’t get any at all. Sometimes a deductible is required to be met, and others need to get a precertification before starting. Our billing department will be able to give you all of that information once they call your insurance.
Do I need an evaluation?
We like to follow best practice evidence-based standards. Therefore, we need an evaluation for us to start any type of service. However, we accept recent evaluations (e.g. from school, a hospital or outpatient facility). If you don’t have a recent evaluation, we would be more than happy to schedule one for you. Please note: insurance companies who require precertification do not accept school evaluations.
How long are your sessions?
Our sessions vary depending on the individual and type of therapy but are typically blocked for 30 or 60 minutes.
How much therapy does my child need?
That’s a great question and one we can discuss together after the evaluation is completed.
Where is your office?
We are located in Delran but see patients at the convenience of their location, which is typically their home, school, or daycare.
