I just got off of the phone with our insurance company and the speech pathologist at Children's Hospital and Will is going to be starting swallowing therapy on Thursday!!!
Our insurance company will pay 90 percent of each bill until our out of pocket equals $2000 (ouch!) then they will pay 100 percent of each bill. I am so relieved that they are going to pay for most of the bill. Even though $2000 is a nice chunk of change, I think that Will is going to benefit greatly from this therapy.
He will start by doing two therapy sessions a week. Each session will be about 90 minutes from start to finish. This is a major time commitment and I am going to have to work some things out with getting Caroline to school and then getting to our appointment on time but it will all work out.
I am looking forward to Will eating and swallowing food!!
