Chatterboks Speech Therapy is not associated with Oregon Health Plan or Keizer Permanente. Oregon Health Plan and Keizer Permanente do not work with any out-of-network providers so we cannot bill them for any services we provide.
Chatterboks Speech Therapy handles submissions for insurance claims. We verify benefits prior to the first scheduled session and submit for referral or prescription documentation from doctors when needed.
Billing for deductibles and copays is handled on a monthly basis. Invoices are paper mailed through our billing service, Heritage Billing Service, by the 10th of the month following services. Payment is greatly appreciated within 2 weeks of receipt of your bill. Payment can be made by cash, check (made out to Chatterboks Speech Therapy) or credit card (VISA, Mastercard, Discover).
