Speech Therapy

Treatment for speech therapy related to developmental delays, dyslexia, dyspraxia, or expressive language disorder are typically not covered by health insurance policies. Speech therapy is a form of treatment that aims to assess and address communication problems and speech disorders. It is typically carried out by speech-language pathologists (SLPs), also known as speech therapists.

Speech therapy techniques are used to improve communication skills and may include articulation therapy, language intervention activities, and other techniques that vary depending on the type of speech or language disorder.

Speech therapy may be necessary for children with speech disorders that develop during childhood or for adults with speech impairments caused by an injury or illness, such as stroke or brain injury. In some cases, coverage for speech therapy in the latter scenario may be provided by the insurance policy. It is important to check with the insurance policy for the coverage on the specific speech therapy treatment.
