A majority of our clients pay for our services privately/out of pocket (cash or check). Some families have personally researched and applied for grants, scholarships, and other private funding sources that have covered some or all of the costs of music therapy. Wondering about insurance?
Core Medicaid does not cover music therapy services (this includes the Deeming Waiver).
Music therapy has been identified as a reimburseable service under benefits for Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP). Falling under the heading of Activity Therapy, the interventions cannot be purely recreational or diversionary in nature and must be individualized and based on goals specified in the patient’s treatment plan.
Music Therapy is reimburseable by some 3rd party medical insurance plans and must be considered an active treatment prescribed by a physician. *Please note that at this time, Metro Music Therapy does not bill insurance companies for our services. We are, however, happy to provide any information to our clients that will help them personally submit claims to their insurance providers. This information can include: a rate sheet, session notes/documentation, assessment documentation, monthly invoices, MT-BC NPI numbers, and any other information insurance companies may require for reimbursement.
