Speech Therapy

Our licensed Speech Therapists will administer a program designed to meet the needs of a new patient relative to his/her speech and language function. We will design an individualized, comprehensive program with goals and a plan of care to improve the patient’s speech and recognition function.

Each of our Med Plus HealthCare Speech Therapists has a Master’s Degree in Speech Pathology and is licensed in the State of Missouri by the State Board of Healing Arts to practice as a Speech Therapist. We also require that our Speech Therapists have a minimum of two years of previous speech therapy experience.

Our Speech Therapy Assessment Process:

When a patient is interested in home health care for themselves or a loved one, a Med Plus  Nurse is on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week to assist with urgent medical questions or situational issues.  We will initiate a complete phone assessment during normal business hours and evaluate the most appropriate home health services for the patient’s unique needs.

Once we have obtained all the necessary information, Med Plus HealthCare will conduct a Case Conference to determine and recommend a specialized treatment plan for the patient.  Our Intake Coordinator follows up by contacting the patient’s physicians and other health care providers to receive their medical orders and to coordinate our services directly with their Plan of Care. We also contact and verify the insurance provider/payer source (i.e. Medicare, private insurance, etc.) and obtain treatment authorization when required by the policy.

When the insurance has been confirmed and authorized, A Med Plus Registered Nurse is sent to the patient’s home to complete a full physical assessment. (The RN will phone the patient beforehand to arrange the visit day and time frame.)  If it is determined that additional medical services are needed, the Registered Nurse will then communicate with the patient’s doctors or other health care providers to coordinate the appropriate care.

Throughout our patient’s home health care service period, our team members are dedicated to providing professional and compassionate care that is tailored to meet individual needs and achieve home health success.
