AbleNet works with speech-language pathologists to help individuals who have difficulties speaking use their medical insurance to obtain a QuickTalker Freestyle speech device.
QuickTalker Freestyle Speech Device
QuickTalker Freestyle is an iPad-based speech device that allows your client or student with a speech impairment to communicate with others. Individuals with Autism, physical or cognitive impairments that prevent clear speech, and individuals who are non-verbal have all benefited from using a QuickTalker Freestyle speech device.
The speech-language pathologist can choose any speech app available for the iPad to ensure their clients or students of all ages and abilities find success with the QuickTalker Freestyle speech device. QuickTalker Freestyle includes a 5-year warranty and 5-years of ableCARE support to ensure your clients or students have the device protection and support they need to communicate with their QuickTalker Freestyle speech device successfully.

AbleNet’s Funding Process Allows ALL Speech-language Pathologists To Be Successful Regardless Of Their Experience With Speech Devices
AbleNet’s funding process allows us to get a QuickTalker Freestyle speech device to your client or student faster than any other speech device provider in the industry. AbleNet’s funding team removes stress and workload for the speech-language pathologist by managing all aspects of the insurance process, including obtaining the DME order from the doctor. After delivering a QuickTalker Freestyle speech device, the ableCARE Product Success team works with your client’s or student’s family to ensure long-term success with the speech device.
For speech-language pathologists who have never gone through the process of having a speech device funded with their client’s or student’s medical insurance, we’re inviting you to join us. With AbleNet’s process and support, we know you are going to be successful. We only ask the speech-language pathologist to write the speech evaluation report and provide you an easy-to-use template to use. We also have tools like a data collection app and worksheets. In the end, AbleNet’s funding team reviews everything to ensure completeness and submits it to the insurer.
We are also inviting speech-language pathologists who already have expertise in using medical insurance to fund a speech device. With your knowledge and AbleNet’s team and process, you’ll be amazed at how fast your student or client can receive their QuickTalker Freestyle speech device.
Bancroft & Joey’s Story
To determine if your client’s or student’s insurance will cover the cost of a QuickTalker Freestyle speech device, AbleNet conducts a benefit check with their medical insurer. Providing the information needed online to start a benefit check only takes a minute and within 1 to 2-days we’ll know if insurance will cover the cost of the QuickTalker Freestyle speech device, if there is any family contribution, and if the insurer requires a trial.
Our benefit check process saves the speech-language pathologist time and sets expectations for the family of the speech device user upfront.
Our Streamlined Process Alleviates Stress And Saves Time
Once a benefit check is completed, and a decision to move forward is made, we only ask that the speech-language pathologist write the speech evaluation report. AbleNet’s funding team will contact the doctor for the DME order, review your speech evaluation report to ensure it best meets the insurer’s criteria, organize all of the documentation, and submit it to the insurer.
Within 24-hours of approval by an insurer, the QuickTalker Freestyle speech device is sent via overnight shipping for delivery by 10:30 am the next day.
