What type of therapy does my child need?

At PlayWorks Therapy, Inc., we offer free developmental screenings to families who are exploring what their child's developmental needs may be. Additionally, if you have concerns regarding your child’s development and your child is between zero and three years of age, they may be eligible for the Illinois Early Intervention Program.

What is your cancellation policy?

At PlayWorks Therapy, Inc., we are sensitive to the fact that emergencies, illnesses, and planned absences (i.e. vacations, appointments) may occur. We ask that all cancellations be communicated to the PlayWorks Therapy, Inc. office and/or your therapist at least four (4) hours prior to the appointment. We ask that you provide your therapist with advanced notice for planned absences so that appointments may be rescheduled when possible.

How much will therapy cost?

Illinois Early Intervention Families:
If your child is eligible for Illinois Early Intervention, payment will initially be submitted to private insurance or paid by the State of Illinois if the insurance does not cover services.

Non-Early Intervention Families:
We are an in-network provider for Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO and Blue Cross Blue Shield Blue Choice. We are registered out-of-network providers for all major PPO insurance plans, including, but not limited to, Aetna, Cigna, Humana, and United Healthcare. Families are responsible for all co-pays, co-insurances and applicable uncovered charges. For clients who are self-pay, payment is due at the time of service. Please contact one of our team members to discuss our various payment options.

PlayWorks Therapy, Inc. directly bills your PPO insurance plan for speech therapy, feeding therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and social work/counseling services. A significant portion of our therapeutic preschool program, PlayWorks Prep, is billable to insurance. Developmental therapy services are not covered by insurance.

Payment Options:
PlayWorks Therapy, Inc. accepts payment by credit card through Therabill or by personal check.
