I want my aba

 

 

1) Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the most effective treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorders, AND the law requires some Private Insurance Plans AND Medical Assistance (MA) in Pennsylvania to cover it. If you are not sure if your provider (such as a BSC or TSS) is skilled at providing ABA please refer to our handout “How Would I Know My Child Was Getting ABA.” In March of 2015, the Department of Human Services (DHS) confirmed that ABA should be a service offered to children covered by Medical Assistance.   Yet we know dozens of families who cannot access ABA for multiple reasons and we suspect hundreds more are encountering the same obstacles.  Parents and Providers, this is why we need your help!

 

1) Contact your insurance and tell them you have not been able to find an ABA provider (BCBA) and that you need their help.  See what they recommend.  Ask if you can go out of network to get your child services faster. 

 

2) At the same time, contact the government by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

 BE HEARD

 The more we raise our voices the better our results will be in helping our children!
