Do you accept my insurance?

Autism Behavioral Solutions currently accepts United, BlueCross BlueShield, Medicaid (Anthem and United) as well as private pay. Most insurance covers ABA therapy however ABA services must be deemed medically necessary by your physician and insurance provider in order to be eligible for coverage.

What does it mean for services to be "medically necessary?"

Medical necessity for ABA services is determined through an assessment of communicative, behavioral, social and self-care deficits and the impact of these deficits on the quality of life for the individual and their families. Educational deficits do not qualify as a medical necessity under current insurance regulations.
