Providing for your child and offering him the very best￼ therapies and support that he needs in order for his development are already a challenge for any special needs parent.
But, to add to the challenge is the absurd preparation it takes in seeking insurance that will cover his required therapy￼￼ and preparing an authorization for xx amount of hours for services.
This year we had two options for CR to cover his ABA therapy services￼. We chose to leave the ever so ridiculous insurance provider that I will not mention name but appealed ALL YEAR long due to reduction in hours because in their eyes after the magic age of 7 you no longer face new autism challenges OR development success gains and your hours should only dwindle away.
We went with a NEW carrier and today, at 12 pm central time, our BCBA will be requesting for a six-month authorization at 40 hours.
While preparing this morning we found a little humor in this Friends video…
￼￼Please send happy vibes or say a prayer today.
