Do you accept Insurance?
We are currently an out-of-network provider with all insurance companies. However, this does not mean that your insurance company will not cover some/all services. Payment for services is provided directly by the family to Blue Stars Therapy via check or our secure online portal. Once payment is received, families are provided a Paid Invoice with treatment/evaluation service and diagnosis codes. Please call your insurance company to find out if you are eligible for out-of-network speech language therapy, occupational therapy, behavioral therapy (ABA), and/or evaluation reimbursement. Should insurance companies require additional documentation to authorize, justify, and/or extend services, we are happy to provide the necessary paperwork for a consultative fee.
