FAQs

 

Is speech therapy covered by my insurance?

  • If your insurance company typically covers speech-language therapy, then participation should be covered. We do not participate with insurance companies; therefore, you will need to request reimbursement just as is done with any other out of network provider. We suggest calling your insurance company to discuss your coverage.
  • If not, consider using your flexible spending account or obtaining an LISS grant.

 

Are speech services tax deductible?

Yes, if you qualify. The cost of necessary speech therapy is a medical deduction subject to a percentage of your “adjusted gross income” reduction for all medical expenses.  Please check with your tax professional or read IRS Publication 502, “Medical and Dental Expenses”.
