At this time, we are private pay only. Private pay allows for flexibility in services, as insurance companies often dictate the number and duration of services. Sometimes, speech is not covered at all. Plus, private pay allows for clients and their families to seek out their own services without needing prior authorization from their insurance company.
Duncan Lake Speech Therapy, LLC does accept payment through HSA/FSA accounts, and can provide the needed documentation should the HSA/FSA company require it for coverage. Additionally, Duncan Lake Speech Therapy, LLC can provide a superbill should a client or their family decide to seek reimbursement of services through out-of-network benefits. The client or their family would need to check with their insurance to ensure this is an option.
In the future, we hope to partner with insurances commonly used in this area to best serve the community.
