IMPORTANT - Doctor's Prescription Required

Please provide us with a doctor’s prescription for
 "speech-language evaluation and/or therapy services, if so warranted." If you are unable to obtain a doctor's prescription yourself, please let us know immediately. In many circumstances, we can request the prescription. Some physicians may require a visit with the patient prior to writing a prescription for services.

Once we have accepted your
REFERRAL and are able to provide speech-language services, we will ask you to please complete the PATIENT INTAKE form prior to the patient's first session.

Paying for Speech-Language Services

Fees for services are based on professional standards. While many insurance companies will pay, at least partially, for speech-language therapy, there are often specific restrictions and limitations under the patient's individual plan. 

Dietrich Speech & Language Services, LLC accepts many forms of insurance, HSA/FSA payments, and private out-of-pocket payments for speech-language services. We are happy to help you with this process as many people find it time-consuming, frustrating, and overwhelming to determine insurance benefits and payment options.

We are considered an "in-network" provider with several insurance companies so we accept payment as determined by our contract with each insurance carrier. We have professional billers who will file claims with your insurance company. If your insurance does not cover the fee for the service, you, or a third party (ex: BabyNet), may be responsible for paying the remaining amount. With the proper information, we can typically contact the insurance carrier to determine exactly what your plan will or will not cover. That way, you will be aware of any out-of-pocket expenses prior to delivery of the service.
