Most commercial medical insurance will cover ABA for children with an autism diagnosis in PA under Act 64.

  1. Seek diagnosis early… often there is a very long wait time for diagnostic evaluation. Early intervention is the most effective!
  2. Call your insurance carrier and ask specifically about ABA services for your child, are they covered? This is typically under Behavioral Health.
  3. When you call GBS about providing services, you will need:
    1. Insurance information
    2. Child’s Date of Birth and name
    3. Current Psychological Evaluation with Diagnosis

GBS will work with parents on private pay, daily co-pays and high deductibles (payment plans, discounts, etc)

Funding assistance may be available (not guaranteed) through various sources, such as your local IU or as related service via IEP for different available services as determined by the team and demonstrated by data over an extended period of time.  Discuss with your educational/therapeutic team and case manager.    This is not a quick process, if your child is making progress in their current setting, please maintain them where they are.  Collect data, be involved, and open discussions with your team.
