The Floortime Center is not in-network with any insurance companies, however occupational therapy, speech therapy, and mental health appointments can receive varying amounts of out-of-network insurance coverage dependent on the insurance provider and your insurance plan’s out-of-network coverage. It is the responsibility of parents/caretakers to contact your insurance provider for information in regards to benefits and coverage prior to submitting claims. It is of caretakers’ best interest to find out this information prior to beginning therapy to be aware of costs and possible reimbursement rates.
Prior to Sessions
Many insurance companies will request a referral from your child’s pediatrician before reimbursing any claims. It is important to visit your pediatrician and request that they provide a referral with the following
information listed:
● Speech or Occupational Therapy Referral for Services
● Medical Diagnosis Code: this is an ICD-10 code that the doctor provides. Therapists cannot provide this code.
● Requested start date for therapy: (it can be a tentative date)
● Duration: for example 90 days, 1x per week
You will need to provide this referral to your insurance company. We will also keep a copy on file for our records. Without this, we cannot add the diagnosis code(s) to your invoices.
Evaluations
● In order for most insurance companies to reimburse for OT or ST sessions, we will need to complete an evaluation (OT or ST) if one has not been done within the previous year. This evaluation is proof of ‘medical necessity’ for insurance providers. Many insurance providers require documentation from a licensed therapist before providing reimbursement that proves treatment is necessary. Your insurance provider may cover this cost, again depending on your benefit plan.
Treatment Sessions
● While we are not in-network with any primary insurers, we will provide invoices with the appropriate coding necessary for you to submit a claim for reimbursement at your discretion. Invoices will be provided at the time of the appointment.
Common CPT Codes used by OT include:
○ 97110 Therapeutic exercise ( strength, endurance, ROM, flexibility)

We do not work with Medicare, Medicaid, or any secondary insurance providers.
Therapist Involvement:
If insurance companies request reauthorization they can contact the treating therapist directly or the caretakers can request this. Therapists can provide reauthorization documentation when necessary. This is a form or documentation stating that treatment sessions continue to be necessary and why.
If your primary insurer needs session notes, please have them contact your therapist directly. Please see associated costs for requests for large amounts of documentation requests.
