How long is a hippotherapy session?
Typically half of the session is 30 minutes of occupational or physical therapy in the clinic. The other 30 minutes is typically hippotherapy and performed in the arena.
What should my child wear?
Your child should dress in layers in all seasons and wear closed toe footwear. We provide helmets though you are welcome to purchase one for your child to bring to each session.
What is the cost of my session?
The cost is dependent upon your insurance plan. We accept Aetna (though out of network), Anthem, BCBS Medicaid, Cigna, Humana, Humana CareSource, Passport, Kentucky Medicaid (EPSDT), Tricare, UHC (though out of network) and Wellcare. The self-pay rate is $80. Co-insurance and/or co-payment is due at the time services are performed. We offer a special program through Kosair Charities for children who do not have insurance or are out of coverage. Inquire at the front desk for an application.
Can I leave while my child is in therapy?
Parents, guardians and caregivers are required to remain on premises throughout the duration of the therapy session.
Does therapy get canceled if it is extremely hot or cold?
Hippotherapy can be temperature dependent; however, we will still have occupational or physical therapy in the clinic regardless of outside temperature. Closures for other weather will be listed on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/GreenHillTherapy by 7:30 am. We also post closings on WHAS11 (www.what11.com/closings).
Can I watch or participate in the session?
Parents/caregivers are invited to shadow the therapy sessions in the clinic and arena as a means of encouraging continuity of care and improved outcomes for the child though please consult with your therapist first. When siblings are brought to the center, parents/caregivers must remain with them in the waiting area. You may watch and/or participate as a side walker in the hippotherapy session in the arena though please coordinate this with your child’s therapist to ensure this is best for your child.
