Cancellations – non emergency:
Except for emergency situations, all appointments must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance by calling or emailing your therapist. We consider the following to be examples of NON EMERGENCY reasons to cancel an appointment: vacations, prescheduled doctor appointments, family events, parties, recreational events, after school activities, lack of babysitter, car trouble, traffic, holiday weekend, school holiday, day before or after a holiday, schedule conflict, and sibling illness.
All appointments that are not cancelled at least 24 hours in advance of the scheduled appointment will be charged a late cancellation fee of $55. This fee is not covered by insurance or other third party payer and must be paid in full no later than your next appointment. Patient will not be seen if late cancellation fee has not been paid.
Cancellations – emergency: In case of emergency (sudden illness, death in family, hospitalization, emergency doctor visit), appointment must be cancelled as early as possible prior to appointment time. There is no charge for an emergency related cancelled appointment.
No Show without Notification: All appointments that are missed without notification will be charged $75 for the missed appointment. This fee is not covered by insurance or other third party payer and must be paid in full no later than your next appointment. Patient will not be seen if late cancellation fee has not been paid.
Speech, language, and feeding therapy will not be effective unless it is consistent and regular. Therefore, regular attendance at all appointments is important. If two or more appointments within a four week period are missed and not rescheduled, we will not be able to hold the appointment time and it will be given to another person. In that case, we will place you on our waiting list for therapy. If the regular appointment time is difficult to maintain, please discuss the possibility of a different time or day with your therapist
