SOOOO many opinions on ABA therapy. This post is NOT to influence whether or not to seek treatment, it’s simply to offer some quick resources I’ve stumbled upon:
1.) BACB website: this site will offer variety of information and literature regarding specifics on ABA therapy and certification process/criteria. BACB was established in 1998 as a nonprofit corporation and they are the first national organization to certify practitioners of applied behavior analysis (ABA)
2.) Employer Letter Samples: this site will direct you to a variety of sample letters available to customize and use for anyone who has a Self Funded Employer plan / or a plan that does NOT cover ABA Therapy. Send us an email for a customized letter. (email@example.com)
3.) Article from OPM : this PDF was generated for the year of 2017. Provides valid points on Q&A for ABA coverage
4.) ABA and Medicaid in Illinois: direct website regarding ABA and Medicaid for the state of Illinois. The Middle of the page will offer a search bar for locations
As always, please share any additional resources and thoughts for our local families!
