First Steps is a state-wide early intervention program that provides services for children birth to three years of age who are identified as having a developmental delay. First Steps offers comprehensive services through a variety of community agencies and service disciplines and is administered by the Department for Public Health in the Cabinet for Health and Family Services. New Beginnings is proud to partner with the First Steps program in enabling and empowering therapists to provide early intervention services to this specific age range throughout the state of Kentucky. Our role as a company working with First Steps is to provide test materials, comprehensive billing and human resource services to our therapists. We also remove the burden of billing paperwork, private insurance credentialing, coding, and stressful cutoffs. An added benefit is that our therapists will not have to spend countless hours at home inputting billing data- services which First Steps does not reimburse therapist’s for since you are only paid by First Steps for time spent in direct therapy. In essence, we are a useful conduit from First Steps to the therapists. It should be noted that those working for New Beginnings will sign a contract both with our company and with First Steps. This unique employment relationship has the benefit of each therapist being their “own boss” while benefiting from both New Beginnings and First Steps. Essentially, this means each therapist has the freedom to set their own hours, days of the week they want to work, areas/counties served, caseload size and severity. What other company can offer you these incentives?
We also have several other home health contracts in the central KY area in which we provide pediatric speech therapy, occupational therapy, and physical therapy. These contracts work very similarly to our First Steps contract in that therapy is provided in the patients home, each therapist makes their own schedule and decides which counties they will serve, each therapist also decides their caseload size and does not have to worry about billing. Therapists will still benefit from our billing and human resource expertise as well as our library of test materials when providing pediatric home health. Essentially, the only differences are how documentation is entered, payment, and length of visits (visits are typically shorter in duration, more frequent, and payment per visit is typically higher).
