  • Yes - and even then a lot of insurance companies will not cover therapy for autism. You will have to check with your individual insurance company and see if they will cover it.

  • My insurance doesn't cover therapy even with a DX . But yes they will want to know WHY the therapy is being asked for. Then they might approve only a certain number of sessions.

  • thats what i figured... i've been checking around to see if i could get him into some type of program while i go throu the process of getting the dx, but everything is so expensive so the only help he is getting is what he gets at school and thats not much
