Insurance Partners

Most insurance will cover the cost of ABA services. However most providers require a medical diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to qualify for ABA services to be covered by insurance. 

In order to start the process LINC will need an IOA signed by caregivers to share/receive information from medical providers. 

To start the prior authorization for an evaluation for ABA services a prescription is required from a doctor. 

 Goals covered by insurance: must be based on medical need and identified during the evaluation process. 

 The client’s BCBA will then recommend hours and confirm with caregivers after finishing the evaluation process. 

 After completing the evaluation process a prior authorization will then be sent to insurance to request to determined hours.
