Understanding Out-of-Network Billing at Dallas Reading and Language Services

What is Out-of-Network Billing?

Out-of-network billing refers to services provided by healthcare professionals who do not have a contract with your insurance company. Although we may not be in-network with your insurance provider, you can still access our exceptional speech therapy services through our out-of-network billing options.

How Does Out-of-Network Billing Work?

  1. Purchase Speech Therapy Package (After free screening): Choose and purchase the private pay package that suits your needs.
  2. Evaluation and Care: Your child will receive an evaluation by a Speech Language Pathologist and subsequent speech therapy sessions. The cost of each session will be deducted from your package credits.
  3. Electronic Billing: As a courtesy, we will attempt to send the bill for each session electronically to your insurance company. This method works for most insurance companies, making the process more convenient for you. Your insurance company will then reimburse you directly based on your out-of-network coverage.
  4. Paper Billing: If your insurance company does not accept electronic bills, we will provide you with a printed receipt of the care given. We suggest requesting a printed bill for each month of services and submitting all of them at once to your insurance company to reduce the hassle of frequent submissions.

Benefits of Our Private Pay Packages

  1. Faster Access to Care: Opting for our private pay packages ensures that your child can begin speech therapy without delays. Out-of-network billing often allows for quicker initiation of services compared to navigating insurance network wait-lists.
  2. Simplified Billing Process: Our private pay packages streamline the billing process. You will know exactly what to expect with transparent pricing and no hidden fees. We strive to make the financial aspect of therapy as straightforward as possible.
  3. Direct Reimbursement: By submitting the bills to your insurance company, you will receive reimbursement directly. This means you have control over managing your therapy expenses and interactions with your insurance provider.

The Power to Choose Your Provider

Transitioning to out-of-network services may seem overwhelming, but we are here to support you every step of the way. Here are the steps and tips to make the process smoother:

  1. Check Your Insurance Benefits: Contact your insurance provider to understand your out-of-network benefits. Inquire about your deductible, reimbursement rates, and any required documentation.
  2. Initial Consultation: Contact us to schedule a free speech and language screening. During this meeting, we will discuss your child’s needs and recommend the next step of an evaluation. Our front desk will provide detailed information about our services and fees and collect payment for the package you choose. We will then schedule your child’s evaluation with a Speech Language Pathologist.
  3. Monthly Submission: For those submitting paper bills, consider requesting a printed receipt for each month of services and submitting them together. This can help streamline the reimbursement process and reduce administrative tasks.
  4. Request Support When Needed: While we encourage you to manage your receipts and submissions, we are available to assist if you have specific needs or questions. Our team is here to ensure you feel confident and informed throughout the process.
