We are coming up on our 3rd anniversary! It is time to upgrade our clinic with some new equipment in order to enhance the services provided to our clients. But we need help. Approximately 85% of our clientele have medical assistance coverage, which allows them to receive our services at no cost to them. In Pennsylvania, the current medical assistance reimbursement rate is $25.00 per hour of occupational therapy. Speech therapy reimbursement is just $21.70 per visit. We are honored to provide access to quality therapy services regardless of a client's financial means. But, at these reimbursement rates, equipment upgrades are simply not in the budget.
We know that times are tough for everyone right now, and we truly appreciate every dollar! Below we have listed our wishlist. These are the items that will be purchased as funds are raised. With each item is a description of just a few of the therapeutic benefits each item will provide to our clients. These items are designed for clinic use and as such are top quality in terms of safety and durability. We know these items will help our clients achieve their goals while having fun for many more years to come!
As always, THANK YOU so much for your support!
