Payments & Fees

We here at Developmental Occupational Therapy realize the that the decision to pursue therapy can be stressful. In addition to that, the commitment and financial obligation it takes to regularly attend sessions is high, even though the benefits are long lasting. Therefore, we strive to make payments and fees as manageable for our families as possible.

Invoices, payments, and fees are dictated by your payer source (private vs insurance vs district).

Our office is primarily a private pay facility but we also accept Kaiser Permanente members who have a prior-authorization.

If you are interested in seeing if your services could be covered by your insurance, please contact your insurance provider and inquire about “Network Gap Exceptions” and/or “Assignment of Benefits”. Be aware that not all insurance companies have these options available and they do not advertise them if they do. Therefore, you will want to be prepared to ask questions and provide specific reasons for why you are in need of their exceptions policy.

Things to prepare before talking to your insurance provider include:
– The CPT code describing the healthcare services
– ICD-10 code describing the diagnosis
– Your contact information
– Time frame for receiving the expected service (average time allowed is 3-7 months).
– Explanation as to why an in-network provider with the same specialty isn’t capable of performing the service requested

You can get any information you need (codes, dates) by calling our office.

Please call us prior to talking to your insurance to inquire about scheduling availability.
