How to Pay for Autism Therapy

At The Place, we believe that cost should never stand in the way of quality care for a child with autism. That’s why we employ dedicated support and billing staff whose mission is to make our ABA therapy program accessible for families regardless of financial circumstances.

While ABA therapy can be expensive, there are several resources available to help cover the cost, including private health insurance, financial assistance programs and grants. Navigating the available options can be overwhelming, but we can help.

Our Family Support Services team works proactively with every family who enters into our program to assess insurance coverage, calculate out-of-pocket costs, find financial assistance opportunities and set up a payment plan. If you are interested in center-based ABA therapy for your child with autism, but are worried about how to pay, contact us and a member of our outreach team will walk you through the process.

* While The Place and many other ABA therapy providers do not currently accept Medicaid, our mission is to help families with Medicaid access affordable ABA services in a timely manner. Given the difficulties in finding ABA providers who accept Medicaid, we help connect families with resources to obtain a private insurance plan that covers ABA therapy and identify grant opportunities to cover some of the costs. If you would like to learn more about the options available to you, please contact us for help using the form below.
