Adult Senior doing Speech Therapy online

Speech Therapy

For Home Health

The Problem

 

SLPs are in short supply nationwide - it's hard to find, hire and keep good SLPs

Because ST is not required for every patient it might not justify hiring full-time SLPs as they'll be underutilized.

In-house SLP costs you, in average, ~$200 per session (with benefits)  

SLPs are hard to find and expensive

The Solution

Access to a pool of qualified and licensed SLPs without needing to commit to hire them and pay salary + benefits?

Cost you 40% LESS than your current alternative? 

Service just for the ST hours you need to provide? 


No require minimum hours/long term commitment? 

You can save money and have a flexible ST solution

3. How much can I save by using Better Speech?


You are probably paying ~$125 per ST session you provide to your patients. Why? becuase adding the cost of in-house SLP plus the cost of benefits and ongoing training adds up to $125-$200/ session (depends how utilized your SLPs are).

Our service is significantly more affrodable and costs only $59 /session so for every 100 hours of ST you need to provide you will save $80,000 a year by switching to Better Speech.


Some of our clients have save $430,000 a year by contracting with Better Speech.

Why spend more on ST when you can deliver the same care for less?




5. Can I start referring patients to reduce my cost on ST?


Yes, you can start refering us patients immedietly and your patients can start getting ST from Better Speech as early as tomorrow! (no waiting weeks to find and recruit in-house SLP).

Once you send a referral using the intake form we'll immediately assign your patient a speech therapist that is an expert in thier needs. You or the patient could schedule a session, directly into the SLP calendar.




7. Do my patients need special technology?


No, they don't.

Many Seniors now have at home either a computer, laptop, tablet or a smartphone that they use to communicate with their family members.

Their device's already has a built-in browser and a webcam that can be used for a Zoom call with our Better Speech therapists.

They'll be sent a link that they just need to click on to start the Zoom speech therapy sesssion, it's easy.

We have clients that are 92 years old conducting regular speech sessions by themselves, if they can, most seniors can :-)




1. Can I charge Insurance for telehealth services?


Yes, you can.

The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) allows speech-language pathologists (SLPs) to provide telehealth services to Medicare Part B (outpatient) beneficiaries (see here)

Due to COVID-19 regulations, you can now use telehealth for start-of-care, evaluation and ongoing speech therpay and Medicare and Medicade are accepting these codes.
