Insurance Carriers

Applied Behavior Analysis therapy is typically paid for through your insurance policy.  We are in-network and currently accept the following insurance companies: Blue Cross Blue Shield, Anthem, United Health Care, UMR, Golden Rule, Humana, Tricare, and Coventry.  Not all insurance policies have the ABA benefit.  Please call the customer service number listed on the back of your insurance card to determine if you currently have the ABA benefit on your policy.  At this time, Missouri and Kansas Medicaid do not cover ABA services.
