Effective Date: June 23, 2020
Expressable, Inc. (“Expressable,” the Company”, “we”, “our” or “us”) provides this platform through our application, or through a third party application (the “Application”) for your personal use only. Use of the Application and our website at expressable.io (collectively, the “Services”) is governed by these terms and conditions of use (the “Agreement”). Although accessible by others, the Services (which include content) are intended for access and use only by U.S. customers. Please read this Agreement carefully before accessing or using the Services.
The Web is an evolving medium. If we need to change the terms of this Agreement in the future, we will post the updated Terms and Conditions through our Application or website and update the “Effective Date” to reflect the date of the changes. You agree to review these Terms and Conditions each time you use the Services so that you are aware of any modifications made to this Agreement. By continuing to access or use the Services after we post such changes, you agree to the terms of this Agreement, as modified
Expressable provides a platform for you to connect with speech-language pathologists and other health care professionals in your area. The platform is also designed to offer information and educational materials about speech disorders and the benefits of therapy.
In states where the corporate practice of speech-language pathology is prohibited, the “Services” as used in this Agreement refers only to our Application, website and related content and does not refer to the telehealth and/or in-person consultations and treatment that users receive from speech-language pathologists or any health care providers through affiliated professional corporations.
To use the Application, you first need to sign up for Expressable’s weekly subscription-based service. When signing up, you are obligated to provide us with certain information, such as your name, address, date of birth, credit card information and the name of your primary care provider (if you have one). You will also be asked to pay for the first session in advance, as discussed in further detail under the Payment section. Upon successful completion of the sign up process, we will provide you with a personal account, accessible for you with a password of your choice.
By using the Application and the Services, you affirm that you are of legal age to enter into this Agreement or, if you are not, that you have obtained parental or guardian consent to enter into this Agreement.
The Application connects you to healthcare professionals who have licensed the Application from us and that have engaged us to provide administrative, scheduling, and other operational services. In the event a health care professional agrees to provide you with healthcare services, the Application schedules those services and may bill you on behalf of your healthcare professional. We make no representation or warranty to you any health care professional will be available to perform health care services.
ALWAYS SEEK THE ADVICE OF YOUR PHYSICIAN OR OTHER QUALIFIED HEALTH PROVIDERS BEFORE DECIDING TO START, ALTER, OR DISCONTINUE ANY COURSE OF CLINICAL TREATMENT OR THERAPY, OR FOR ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING YOUR MEDICAL CONDITION, YOUR DIET, OR THE USE (OR FREQUENCY) OF ANY MEDICATION OR MEDICAL DEVICE. DO NOT USE THE SERVICES AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR CONSULTING WITH YOUR PHYSICIAN OR OTHER HEALTH CARE PROVIDER, AND DO NOT DISREGARD PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL ADVICE OR DELAY IN SEEKING IT BECAUSE OF ANY INFORMATION RECEIVED IN CONNECTION WITH OUR SERVICES.
You represent and warrant that the information you provide to us is accurate and complete. You acknowledge and agree that we are entitled at all times to verify the information provided and to deny your use of the Services at any time for any reason or no reason. You may only access the Services using authorized means. It is your responsibility to check to ensure you download the correct Application for your device. We are not liable if you do not have a compatible device or if you download the wrong version of the Application for your device.
By accessing or using the Services, you further agree that:
We reserve the right to immediately terminate your use of the Services should you fail to comply with any of the foregoing rules.
We reserve the right to require payment for the fees for the Services or certain features of the Services.
We offer different subscription options, each with a varying scope of services and fees. You must select your desired subscription option from the available list on the Expressable website at www.expressable.io/pricing. The terms of your selected subscription option can be found on Expressable’s website at www.expressable.io/pricing. Subscription options may change from time to time, and you will receive at least ninety (90) days’ advance notice of such changes. However, you are entitled to the full scope of your subscription option as it existed as of the effective date of a specific subscription term for the duration of such term. For any subsequent renewal term, you may accept the revised subscription option or reject such option and terminate your subscription. You acknowledge that these rates may be modified or updated at any time. It is your own responsibility to remain informed about the current rates for the Services made available through the Application.
Upon signing up with Expressable, you will be required to pay for the cost of the first session. During your first session, your therapist may suggest a subscription option based on their assessment of you or your child’s needs. However, you may decide what subscription option makes the most sense for you. Please let your therapist know what subscription option you choose and your subscription will be updated accordingly. You will be asked to schedule a mutually available time(s) for recurring weekly session(s) based on your selected subscription option. All subsequent sessions will be automatically billed weekly on a recurring basis.
You will be charged for any session that you do not attend without previously notifying your therapist within 24 hours of a session’s scheduled time. If you were unable to attend a session due to an extenuating circumstance, please email us at email@example.com or call 512-399-0064.
For any session that is cancelled more than 24 hours prior to its scheduled time, you will be provided a credit that can be applied toward a future session. The credit will be in the amount of the current rate for the scheduled services. You may redeem this credit for a period of 30 days starting at the time of the cancelled session. To redeem this credit, you may reach out to your therapist to find a mutually agreeable time for a speech therapy session. If for whatever reason you are unable to identify a mutually agreeable time to redeem your credit within 30 days of the cancelled session, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 512-399-0064
If a session is cancelled because your therapist is unable to attend on the scheduled time, we will attempt to reschedule that session at a time of your convenience. If we are unable to reschedule the session, you will be provided a refund in the amount of the current rate for the scheduled services.
If you are unable to attend your scheduled sessions due to a vacation or another circumstance, you may pause your subscription for a period of up to two weeks. If you choose to pause your subscription, you will not be eligible to pause your subscription again for a period of 6 months from the date of your first missed session. If your vacation or circumstance will prevent you from attending sessions for a period longer than two weeks, you may accrue credits per the policy outlined above. Alternatively, you may cancel your subscription but we cannot guarantee that your assigned therapist or timeslot will be available if you choose to restart your subscription.
At present, we do not process any insurance claims, nor will the health care professionals process claims on your behalf. Although the consultations/treatments you receive from health care professionals through the Application may or may not be covered by your insurance, it is solely up to you to contact your health plan, determine whether coverage applies and submit a claim. You are responsible for the full fee (and for paying the fee in advance) regardless of whether you later are able to receive reimbursement from your health plan for part or all of the cost.
