OPEN ENROLLMENT 11/1/2018 to 12/15/2018

Illinois has passed a law for individual and group health insurance policies and HMO contracts to cover ABA therapy for children with autism--we have found most if not all INDIVIDUAL POLICIES cover ABA therapy however the Autism Law does have a few exceptions for GROUP PLANS such as a self-insured and union plans which may opt out.  For a summary of this law go to the Illinois Department of Insurance's website at:  http://insurance.illinois.gov/HealthInsurance/autism.asp

Public Health Care Programs

Unfortunately, the Autism Law specifically states that it does not allow us to accept autism coverage provided by public health care programs such as FamilyCare and All Kids. Please see the above link  for more information. However, it may make a difference if you are in a managed care network; therefore, we encourage you to find out exactly what coverage your child's specific plan has for autism treatment by calling the company that administers your plan and asking them if they recognize a BCBA provider and if they cover ABA therapy for your child.  Be prepared to give them a diagnosis code for autism and CPT codes for ABA therapy.  If you need help finding the proper CPT code for your insurance please contact us and we will try and help you.. 

If you card does not recognize a BCBA and ABA Therapy we encourage you to contact our state representatives and ask them to amend the law so it does not exclude these benefits for children on public health care programs!

ATTENTION!  SENATOR JERRY LONG IS WORKING ON CREATING LEGISLATION TO REQUIRE STATE CARDS TO COVER ABA THERAPY!  PLEASE CONTACT HIS OFFICE TO GIVE HIM YOUR SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT IN HIS EFFORT!
