Do you have a child with Autism and Medicaid Insurance? Are you looking for ABA services but have been told Medicaid will not cover such services? The Place for Children with Autism can help.

Unfortunately, it is still the case that ABA (i.e., Applied Behavior Analysis) services are not covered by Medicaid in Illinois. This is alarming given that ABA is recognized as the most effective intervention by the US Surgeon General and by the American Psychological Association.

The Place for Children with Autism helps families with Medicaid access affordable insurance that covers ABA services. Currently, more than 60% of our families and clients have Medicaid and are receiving services in one of our 6 ABA clinic centers.

But how? This workshop is designed to educate and start the process of working together to obtain private insurance plans that will cover these critical ABA services. We will guide your family in choosing the right plans and then educate you in ways to cover the cost of those plans by leveraging available resources.

Important Note: These workshop series only occur one time per year. Open enrollment is from November 1st – December 15th so it is urgent to start the process NOW.

Autismo y Medicaid: acceso a servicios de ABA.

¿Tiene a un hijo/a con autismo y cobertura médica con Medicaid? Está buscando servicios de ABA pero le han dicho que Medicaid no cubrirá dichos servicios? El lugar para los niños con autismo puede ayudar.

Desafortunadamente, los servicios de ABA (es decir, terapia del comportamiento aplicado) no están cubiertos por Medicaid en el estado de Illinois. Esto es alarmante dado que ABA es reconocida como la intervención mas efectiva por el Cirujano General de US y por la Asociación Americana de Psicología.

El Lugar para los niños con autismo ayuda a familias con Medicaid a acceder un seguro asequible que cubre los servicios de ABA. Actualmente, más del 60% de nuestras familias y clientes tienen cobertura con Medicaid y están recibiendo servicios en uno de nuestros seis centros clínicos de ABA.

¿Pero cómo? Este taller está diseñado para educar y comenzar el proceso de trabajar juntos para así poder obtener planes de un seguro privados que cubran estos servicios tan críticos. Le guiaremos a elegir los planes correctos y así también ofrecerle recursos disponibles para cubrir el coste de estos planes.

Nota importante: Esta serie de talleres solo ocurren una vez al año. Inscripción abierta es del 1 de noviembre al 15 de diciembre, por lo que es urgente comenzar el proceso AHORA.
