Autism & Medicaid: Accessing ABA Therapy
August 12, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm CDTFree
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. Last year, we helped over 50 families obtain insurance and begin ABA therapy at one of our centers or with a provider of their choosing.
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 provide resources to help leverage the costs.
Important Note: These workshop series only occur one time per year. Open enrollment HAS RE-OPENED from Feb 15th – August 15th so it is urgent to start the process NOW.
