Speech Therapy Clinic Expands Medicaid Coverage
to Better Serve Low-Income Families in Dallas


(DALLAS, August 18, 2015) – Dallas Reading and Language Services is pleased to announce they are now accepting clients enrolled in Texas Bluebonnet Health Plans, and the Children’s Medical Center Health Plans for CHIP, STAR, STAR+PLUS, STAR Health, and Star Kids products.

The speech therapy clinic proudly adds these plans to all other Medicaid insurance carriers which they accept including Molina Healthcare, Parkland Medicaid/CHIP, Amerigroup, and TMHP.

“This addition follows our clinic’s continuing efforts to provide high-quality services to those in need in the Dallas community,” says Rachel Betzen, M.A., CCC/SLP, the clinic’s founding speech-language therapist. “We are very happy that we can now offer even more access to healthcare for the people in Dallas.”

Dallas Reading and Language Services has been a leading provider of speech-language therapy and reading programs in North Texas since their founding by Rachel Betzen in 2005. They are unique among North Texas speech therapy and language service providers for their focus on working with lower socio-economic families, as well as middle class and higher income families.

Today, Dallas Reading and Language Services offers services on a sliding scale basis for private pay families, as well as some insurance, in addition to the Medicaid plans they accept.

Dallas Reading and Language Services also provides free screenings for hearing, speech and language. Parents may e-mail or call to schedule a screening appointment.

Dallas Reading and Language Services is also available to provide hearing or speech-language screenings in the community.

Health clinics, private schools, and community centers are encouraged to contact the clinic at 214.646.1570 for further information on these services.
