Benefits of Working with an Out-Of-Network Provider
Insurance authorization is not needed to start receiving speech therapy services. After an evaluation is completed, if we feel that your child would benefit from speech therapy services, we are able to begin speech therapy services immediately without waiting on insurance approval.
Often times, insurance companies require a certain standard score or deficit to qualify for services. Working with an out-of-network/private pay therapist means that your child does not have to score within a certain range to qualify for speech and language services. It also means that we have complete flexibility to tailor your child’s treatment plan to target goals that are important to you, without worrying about any insurance restrictions.
A formal evaluation is not required. We understand that for some children, a formal evaluation is not feasible, or not the most realistic way to assess their current skill level. There are many comprehensive informal measures that can be used to assess your child’s strengths and areas of need to help determine a treatment plan that is appropriate for them. We can provide a treatment plan that is fully customized to your child’s specific needs.
You are not limited to a set number of visits per year or a set duration for treatment sessions. Often times, insurance only approves an allotted amount of sessions per year. By using an out-of-network provider, we are able to work together as a team to determine the number of sessions per week that works best for your child and your family.
All payment is due at the time of service. Bluebonnet Therapy Services, PLLC accepts payment via cash, credit card, or HSA/FSA cards. A super bill can be provided, at your request, if you would like to seek out reimbursement from your insurance. We are happy to speak with you to help you understand what specific questions to ask your insurance provider. It is each family‘s responsibility to confirm eligibility for speech services with their insurance provider prior to starting therapy. We are able to verify Blue Cross Blue Shield benefits beforehand, however each family is responsible for any charges that insurance does not cover.
