Welcome To Agape Therapy! If you are just getting started with Agape, we have created a Patient Forms Packet that you may download and complete before your first visit.
How do I initiate service
There are two ways to initiate service. First, you can ask your physician to send us a referral via fax to (210) 890-8988. We will contact you within 48 hours to set up an evaluation to determine if speech therapy is needed. Don't want to wait on your doctor? Call to request an appointment at (210) 890-8999.
What to expect during evaluation
Evaluations typically take between one and a half to two hours to obtain a reliable and accurate diagnosis. If therapy is recommended, we will develop an individualized treatment plan that will most benefit the client and family’s needs. Length of therapy differs depending on the type and severity of the diagnosis and will be discussed prior to beginning therapy. Each client receives a written initial evaluation and tentative treatment plan as well as a progress report that will outline the detailed progress on each goal every three months.
Do you bill insurance?
Yes, We File Health Insurance. Agape Therapy accepts numerous insurance providers as well as Medicaid at this time. All claims for speech, language or feeding therapy are filed directly. We will keep each client informed as to their specific claims. Insurance can be a tricky business, so please feel free to ask any questions at any time.
We are providers with Medicare, Texas Medicaid, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, Aetna, Amerigroup, Cigna, Humana, Multiplan, Molina Healthcare, United Healthcare, Superior Healthplan, Tricare, and Wellcare. Unfortunately at this time we do not accept Community First Health Plan.
Online speech therapy provided by Speech Pathologist offers the same benefits as traditional speech therapy. Taught by our licensed and certified Speech-Language Pathologist, (SLP) we use web-based video conferencing to provide real-time speech therapy. From the convenience of your own home and on a pre-scheduled day and time that fits your busy schedule (including night and weekend appointments), our speech therapists will engage you with a customized speech therapy plan.
