Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept insurance?

YES. We accept most major insurance plans and will submit claims on your behalf to your insurance company for any services provided at Speech Therapy For All PC. We currently accept the following insurances. If you do not see your insurance carrier, please call us and we can let you know.

    • Aetna
    • Blue Cross Blue Shield
    • Cigna
    • Emblem Health
    • Humana Tricare
    • Magnacare
    • Medicare
    • United Health Care (NYSHIP/Oxford/UMR)

Prior to scheduling your evaluation or therapy session, we will obtain your insurance information so we can verify benefits and coverage for you, and let you know if your services are covered in full or what you may owe per visit.

Do you have payment options if we do NOT have insurance benefits for therapy services?

YES. We provide flexible payment options that include options to prepay for 5 therapy sessions ahead of time at a discounted rate. We also offer discounts for siblings that are enrolled in therapy services at the same time.

What do I need to get started?

To get scheduled for an initial evaluation, we will need:

  • New Patient Intake Forms completed

  • Copy of insurance card(s)

  • Doctor’s referral (if necessary for your insurance plan)

Will I need to get a referral from my doctor ahead of time?

Maybe. This will depend on your insurance plan and their requirements. We will work with you by calling your insurance company on your behalf to determine if this is necessary for pre-authorization.

Can I come back with my child/family member during his/her appointment?

YES. We welcome parent and family involvement and encourage participation when it is helpful and beneficial for your child.

At times, however, your therapist may feel it is in your child and family member's best interest NOT to have a family member in the room during a session. This could be for a variety of reasons which your therapist and you will discuss together ahead of time.

How long are the sessions?

Evaluations are scheduled for 60 minutes and therapy sessions are scheduled for 30 minutes. If the parent does not come into the room for the session, the therapist will use the last few minutes of the session to review your child's goals, performance, and homework.

How do I know if my child or family member needs services?

It is always a good idea to start by talking with one of our therapists to ask questions or concerns you have regarding your child's development. We are happy to speak with you about any concerns you may have. Our therapists can advise you on whether further action is recommended, such as scheduling an evaluation. In the case of speech/language concerns, you are welcome to schedule a free screening where specific concerns can be informally assessed, and where you will be provided with an opportunity to sit down and discuss your concerns in person.
