When a child has developmental delays the first things that parents are told is to contact Early Intervention Program. What if a family had Private Insurance would the Doctor still recommend Early Intervention. I would think if someone had Private Insurance that the Doctor could refer you to any specialist that would accept said Insurance. I don't understand.

I have private insurance. My pediatrician still referred us to EI. EI accepted my son even though he did not test as far behind as was necessary for qualification. My insurance would not have covered any treatment since he was only a little behind, and I believe my insurance requires testing by EI. I do pay for the EI services since it is based on income. I would gladly pay for private services out of pocket if necessary, but my pediatrician said EI was just as good as anything else that was available where we live.
