Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer diagnostic services?
What is the process to begin ABA therapy?
First we schedule a get-to-know-you meeting where information is exchanged, a tour of the facility is conducted, and we determine if services are appropriate. Then we determine eligibility thru insurance and discuss scheduling. When all parties are ready, an assessment is conducted to determine medical necessity. Staffing timetables are discussed, authorizations are obtained, and start date is set!
How is ABA therapy funded?
ABA is primarily funded through private insurance or Medicaid. There are also other State and private programs that offer assistance with deductibles and co-pays.
Engaging Minds is currently in-network with Anthem BCBS, United Healthcare/Optum, Tricare East/Humana, IU Health, Cigna, CareSource (private), CareSource (Medicaid), Anthem Medicaid, Traditional Medicaid, MHS/Cenpatico, and MDWise.
We are always looking to expand our network, so if you are enrolled with a different insurance provider than one listed above, please contact us!
Is there a waiting list?
Yes. The waiting list can vary widely depending upon many factors. We are continually in communication with families in order to keep them updated as to availability.
What documents do I need to get started?
The information required varies depending on the type of insurance. The most commonly needed documents in order to authorize services include: a diagnostic assessment (ex: ADOS) that results in an autism diagnosis, insurance information (ex: subscriber, member or group ID numbers), and IEP if available, and an assessment of medical necessity as completed by one of our behavior analysts.
What does a typical ABA program look like?
Every program is individualized based on the needs of the child, but there are some limitations based on the type of insurance and based on medical necessity. A minimum of 15 hours per week has been proven clinically effective, with a maximum of 40 hours per week for younger learners.
