Payment for Services

Patient cost shares, including Deductible, Co-Pay, and Co-Insurance, are due at the time of service and can be made by Credit Card (Visa/MasterCard), check or cash.

Attendance Policy

A child’s therapy program requires consistent attendance to be effective. Patients are required to maintain a 75% attendance rate for scheduled appointments. Clients who drop below 75% for two consecutive months, at the discretion of D. O. T. S. for Kids management, will be discharged from the therapist’s caseload.

Cancellations

Planned (school event, vacations, etc.): Parents are responsible for notifying our office when they need to make changes to their child’s therapy schedule. We request a 48-hour notice for any cancellation so that adjustments can be made or sessions re-scheduled.

Due To Illness: Children with diarrhea, vomiting, contagious diseases and/or temperature above 100 degrees shall not be seen to ensure the health of the therapist and other patients being treated. If your child wakes up sick, please leave a message at our office by 9:00 am on the day of the appointment.

No-Shows

If you fail to cancel your appointment you will be considered a “no-show” and billed a $70.00 fee for Occupational or Physical Therapy and $50.00 fee for Speech Therapy appointments. “No-show” fees are not reimbursable by insurance.  Additionally, D. O. T. S. for Kids reserves the right to charge a “no-show” fee for appointments that are not cancelled by 9:00 am on the day of the appointment.  

**Medicaid participants are exempt from this policy.  However, we are required to report your failure to make scheduled appointments to Texas Medicaid which could result in loss of benefits.**

HIPPA Notification

Our office has implemented policies to protect the use and disclosure of your child’s protected health information.  Please read it carefully.
