The BPS team supports consumers who qualify under:
For DDD services, a child must have an autism diagnosis or at risk for autism to qualify for the ECA program. This program is a time limited Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention that covers specialized habilitation until the age of 7 or until first grade. A child must be evaluated before the age of 5 to receive this service.
Our private insurance Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is dependent on individual insurance plan’s coverage for autism services. It requires a prescription from a doctor for ABA services and a recent diagnostic evaluation report for preapproval.
We are now contracted with both Mercy Care and United Health Care Community Plan for Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). This is excellent news for our families who wanted to receive support services for their loved one that was not previously covered.
