In Ontario, families have a choice to receive public and/or private services, separately or at the same time. When you choose Bluewater Speech & Language Services, you do not wait on months-long waitlists for service. This enables you to get your child’s profile of strengths and areas of concern identified early to get the help they need right away. Check out the Resources section for information on the importance of early identification and treatment as they relate to children’s brain development.
All fees for service are paid directly to BSLS by the client. Payment can be made by debit card, credit card, cheque, or cash. A detailed invoice is provided for every session for insurance reimbursement and/or tax purposes. We can direct bill to Greenshield, BlueCross, and SSQ.
Speech-language assessment and treatment services are covered by most extended health benefits and most do not require a physician’s referral. Please refer to your policy for your family’s coverage amount and your insurer’s procedures for reimbursement. Speech-language assessment and treatment services paid out of pocket can be claimed as a medical expense for a given tax year.
