Frequently Asked Questions
What ages do you see? We see all ages! We pride ourselves in being able to offer SW Nebraska Speech and Language Therapy and Swallowing Therapy to a variety of ages.
Do you accept my insurance? We accept Private Pay and are not in network with private insurance, other than Medicare at our Wauenta and McCook locations. All other locations are billed per their insurance policies.
How does scheduling work at RRS? We schedule recurring appointments at the frequency that fits your child’s needs. We try our best to find a day and time that works for your family, and then that spot is reserved for your child.
How is payment handled? Payment at the time of service is always encouraged but bi-monthly or monthly payment can be discussed if necessary.
How long are the therapy sessions? Sessions are typically 30-45 minutes in length.
How long will I or my child need therapy? The length of therapy depends on the nature of your child’s needs and the rate of progress made in therapy sessions. We consistently see that follow-through at home has a positive impact on progress and can reduce the amount of time spent in therapy. We love to support parents in taking an active role in their child’s progress.
Good Faith Estimate
The Good Faith Estimate shows the cost of items and services that are reasonably expected for your health care needs for an item or service. The estimate is based on information known at the time the estimate was created.
The Good Faith Estimate does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment. You could be charged more if complications or special circumstances occur. If this happens, federal law allows you to dispute (appeal) the bill.
If you are billed for more than the Good Faith Estimate, you have the right to dispute the bill. You can do this by contacting your healthcare provider to update the bill to match the Good Faith Estimate, ask to negotiate the bill, or ask if there is financial assistance available. Or, you can start a dispute resolution process with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. If you choose to use the dispute resolution process, you must start the dispute process within 120 calendar days of the date on the original bill.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
● You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
● Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
● If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
● Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 800-985-3059.
