Frequently Asked Questions
How do I start services for my child at MOST/DFW?
What information is needed for referral?
To start, we need the diagnosis of the child, applicable to Speech-Language Pathology and/or Occupational Therapy, parent contact information and insurance card/provider information.
What is the referral process like?
First, our Intake Coordinator electronically submit verification for insurance benefits, which may take up to 7-10 business days depending on the coverage provider. Then, parents complete our intake form. Once all of this is completed, evaluation(s) will be scheduled.
How long does it take to start therapy?
Typically, the referral process takes a minimum of two weeks to start any service(s). This greatly depends on how quickly insurance and intake information is provided. All services and evaluations must be approved by your health insurance provider prior to starting therapy services.
Is my child old enough/too old for therapy?
MOST/DFW accepts patients of all ages!
What happens after the Evaluation?
After the therapist scores and completes the evaluation, we will reach out for a post-evaluation consultation, where the evaluating therapist will explain the results and make recommendations for therapy. Then, we get a doctor’s orders to complete the recommended therapy and obtain any necessary authorizations from your insurance company. Once these steps are complete, our Clinical Director will call to schedule treatment.
Do you accept my child’s insurance?
MOST/DFW is in network with BlueCross BlueShield, Humana, Medicaid, UHC, UMR, Optum, Childrens, and Aetna Better Health. Depending on your plan, out of network services may be available.
