Funding Resources for Speech-Language Pathology Services
Unsure about who you can contact for information about speech-language pathology services and coverage? There are a variety of resources that may have answers to your questions about services for both adults and children.
First Look at Your Own Health Care Plan
Read your health plan. If you do not have a copy, ask your employer's benefits manager for one. You should look for:
- Terms like speech-language pathology, speech therapy, other rehabilitation services, or other medically necessary services
- Limitations and exclusions of coverage
- Coverage of both evaluation and treatment (or therapy) services
If you are still not sure, ask for clarification, in writing, from your health plan.
