Enrollment in InStride’s therapy program begins with a prescription for physical, occupational, or speech/language therapy from a physician. An enrollment packet must be completed and turned in, along with the prescription. If the client has health insurance coverage or is a Medicaid recipient, authorization must be received prior to receiving services. Our medical insurance billing specialist will assist with getting services authorized.
Once the enrollment process is complete, clients will be scheduled for an evaluation by one of our specially trained therapists to identify goals and ensure that hippotherapy is an appropriate and safe treatment strategy for the client. Once the evaluation is complete, clients will be assigned a day/time for therapy.
Financial assistance is available to eligible clients who are not covered by health insurance or Medicaid. For more information, please contact us.
