Cost of Services
Families with private health insurance or Medicaid will have a co-pay for each speech-language therapy visit. Families should call their insurance providers to verify the number of speech therapy visits covered each year, and what their co-pay will be. We are required to collect your co-pay at each visit. Please note that for students who also receive reading instruction, the family will need to pay a small sliding scale fee to cover the reading portion of their child's treatment. Families are responsible for denied insurance claims, this can usually be avioded by calling your insurance company to request they pay for covered services.
For private pay families, the cost for an initial evaluation and follow up consultation with a written report is $150. The cost of therapy is done on a sliding scale basis for all families who pay out-of pocket. Families are encouraged to use our sliding scale, which takes into account a family's income, number of dependent children, out-of pocket medical expenses, and a few other factors. Please contact us for further details.
Rachel Betzen also provides free screenings for hearing, speech and language. Parents may e-mail or call to schedule a screening appointment. If your child is on insurance or Medicaid please bring their insurance information to your screening appointment. Rachel Betzen, CCC/SLP is also available to provide hearing or speech-language screenings in the community. Health clinics, private schools, and community centers are encouraged to contact us for further information on these services.
