FORMS AND POLICIES
SPEECH and LANGUAGE THERAPY Cancellation Policy:
A 24-hour notification is required for cancellation of a therapy session.

Private Pay & Out-of-Network Billing Options
Out-of-Network Insurance Carriers
If we are out-of-network with your insurance company, full payment of service is due the day of service. We will submit a claim on your behalf as a courtesy (requesting our clinic to complete portions of forms from your company to repay you later is $85). Depending on your insurance plan, out-of-network benefits may be payable after your deductible is met. Some carriers will reimburse you directly, while others will reimburse the clinic. If the clinic is reimbursed the amount will be credited to your account and future payments for services will be adjusted accordingly. Written reports will be provided upon request from your insurance company as needed.
Private Pay Speech-Language Therapy
Initial Evaluation Fee is $400.00 if parents intend to receive follow up services if the child qualifies. Those needing an evaluation only, without intent to be served by Shelli's Speech, Language, & Reading, will be charged an evaluation fee of $500. The initial evaluation fee includes an evaluation and a written report. If further consultation is needed for recommendations made, a fee of $125.00 will provide a one-hour consultation of the written report/treatment goals. Note that a consultation without the patient present the majority of the time is not covered by insurance. Private pay Speech-Language therapy treatment sessions are discounted to $90.00 per hour, and Half Hour Discount Price is $45.00 per session. Orton-Gillingham/Structured Literacy-only therapy is discounted to $85 per session. Two-three sessions/week, plus home assignments, are required for dyslexia-based services. Additional services provided include attending an IEP meeting ($125.00) and performing school observations, consultation or home observations for up to 1½ hours ($150.00). All payments are due at time of billing.
Please note we may not be able to work with some policies (in-network or out-of-network) that use substantially lower than market standards as 'payment' for services. Please be aware of deductible and co-pays, and of need to make payments for any amounts not paid by your insurance.
