Services rendered by Quality Telepractice, LLC are considered memory coaching and are provided by trained and independent memory coaches specializing in facilitating memory exercises that have proven to be beneficial in maintaining memory function. The services are not considered to be Speech-Language Pathologist services for cognitive care as outlined in Medicare and medical billing codes, and as such may not be billed to or reimbursed from, Medicare or private health insurance providers. The client understands the payment for the services is the sole responsibility of the client and that Quality Telepractice, LLC may not bill Medicare or private health insurance providers for the services on behalf of the client, and the client may not request reimbursement for the services from Medicare or private health insurance providers.
As a small, quality private practice we have opted out of taking private insurance at this time, for any covered SLP services (Exception: standard Medicare patients, who do not have a private insurance Advantage plan). Therefore, as an out of network provider our services are considered private pay by our clients, and so we have priced these services at a more affordable rate for our clients. However, if a client would like to seek reimbursement from their insurance company for any skilled services, they may request a superbill from Quality Telepractice to submit with their reimbursement request.
Telepractice is the application of telecommunications technology to the delivery of professional services remotely by linking facilitator to client for assessment, intervention, and/or consultation.
The term telepractice is used, rather than the frequently used terms telemedicine or telehealth, to avoid the misperception that these services are used only in health care settings.
Use of telepractice must be equivalent to the quality of services provided in person.
