Facts and Questions
Do you accept insurance?
Azzurri Speech Therapy is an out-of-network provider. My services are often covered by out-of-network benefits. I provide you with a receipt/suberbill to submit to your insurance for possible reimbursement. I also accept HSA/FSA cards.
Why don't you accept insurance?
Accepting insurance would require a full time employee to spend hours billing and communicating with insurance companies. Often, only a portion of the amount billed is reimbursed. Instead, Azzurri Speech Therapy has chosen to devote time and resources to completing trainings to increase knowledge/skills to benefit clients more directly. Azzurri Speech Therapy is better able to cater to each child's specific needs without worrying whether it will be covered by insurance.
How much do you charge?
Because I do not accept insurance, I strive to keep my prices affordable.
Therapy session rates are as follows:
30 minutes - $65
45 minutes - $80
60 minutes - $100
60+ minutes - $200 (comprehensive evaluation report and treatment plan included)
A formal evaluation is not required if you already have a recent evaluation from another practice
