Occupational therapist

An occupational therapist is a healthcare professional who helps individuals of all ages and abilities develop, regain, or maintain the skills they need for daily living and working, such as self-care, work, and leisure. They use a client-centered approach to identify a person's goals and needs, and then design and implement interventions to improve their physical, cognitive, or emotional abilities, and promote their engagement in daily activities.

Out of pocket expenses

Out-of-pocket expenses are the direct costs that an individual pays for healthcare services or products that are not covered by insurance, such as deductibles, copayments, coinsurance, and other fees. They are an important consideration for individuals to manage their healthcare costs and make informed decisions about their medical care.
