Understanding your insurance coverage for autism and ABA therapy can be very confusing.

Insurance claims procedures vary significantly among insurance companies because treatments for Autism have only recently received standard Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes from the American Medical Association. We will assist you in understanding the information regarding your insurance plan’s coverage and benefits so you have a realistic assessment of the specific coverage. If a family’s insurance plan requires it, Foundations Therapy will work with the Primary Care Physician and insurance case manager to obtain referrals and authorizations. On our clients’ behalf, Foundations Therapy files claims weekly to insurance companies according to the particular procedure for each insurance company.

Foundations Therapy accepts the following major insurances: Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Beacon, Humana, Cigna, Golden Rule, Magellan, Meritain, Psychcare, Tricare, UMR and United Healthcare.
