- How do I determine if services are appropriate?
- Speaking to a therapist at Groton Integrated Therapies can help to decide if challenges may exist. After you have contacted the clinic, a phone appointment will be set up for you to speak to one of our therapists. This phone call is a time to talk about your concerns and questions, as well as a time for the therapist to ask specific guiding questions about sensory and motor skills related to daily functioning. Per this discussion, the therapist will help to decide if an evaluation is necessary and, if so, the evaluation most appropriate for the client. This phone appointment is free of charge.
- Will my medical insurance cover services?
- Groton Integrated Therapies is not a “provider” for insurance companies. We are considered an “out of network” provider.
To determine if your insurance company will reimburse for services at Groton Integrated Therapies, you should speak directly with your claim or member service representative. When doing an inquiry, the following information about Groton Integrated Therapies will be helpful:
- We are a non-participating facility.
- We are a private occupational and physical therapy facility.
- We are not affiliated with a medical/hospital facility.
At Groton Integrated Therapies clients pay for the services at the time the service is rendered. If your insurance provides benefits for an out-of-network provider, or you belong to a PPO plan that covers outside facilities, Groton Integrated Therapies will provide an appropriate receipt that you may use to seek reimbursement.
- How does treatment in a clinic differ from the service my child may get in school?
- In a private clinic like Groton Integrated Therapies, therapy programs are developed to address a client’s difficulty functioning in a variety of settings, including home, school, and community. In school, the goal of treatment is to address difficulties impacting the child’s ability to successfully function within the educational environment only.
- What is the age range appropriate for evaluation and treatment?
- Infants and children with suspected developmental and sensory issues should be referred for an evaluation as early as possible. An evaluation will provide accurate information related to the child’s areas of strengths and needs so effective therapy and home programs can be established. We are trained and experienced to provide evaluation and treatment to children of all ages, including infants, adolescents, and adults.
