What is ARICA?

 Who is eligible for services?

Any individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder who require “medically necessary” treatment for the disorder are eligible for services. ARICA is clear that there is no age limit for these services.

How do I know if my plan includes ABA services?

This law only affects certain types of health care coverage, so coverage for Autism will depend on your specific policy. Coastal ABA can help you navigate the process of determining whether your insurance plan covers ABA and social skills training. After a quick consultation, we can contact your insurance carrier and determine exactly what services are covered under your policy.
