Telepractice and Online Coaching
Many speech-language pathology out-patients, perhaps even you, are unable to receive speech therapy treatment due to closures associated with the Coronavirus.
Medicare has now expanded Telehealth Services to Audiologists and SLPs During the COVID-19 Pandemic, and treatment visits are billed directly to insurance. United Healthcare and several other commercial insurance plans have also expanded telehealth coverage.
For this reason, you may want to investigate Telepractice and Online Coaching. I have been offering this for years and patients report great success with it. Using your home computer or tablet device you can connect with me for an assessment, treatment, or coaching, including help with use of any Voice Aerobics product.
