Funding

communitycoaching_logoInclude Autism’s Community Coaching Program Team is committed to work with and
accommodate the individual needs of all families that need the service in every way we can by providing comprehensive services to address the individual needs for our Program Participants and their families. We strive to provide services based on each family’s unique needs, distinct circumstances, and individual resources in attempt to continue to reach as many kids and teens with ASD that need our services to access become included in their community, within the scope of services, current regulations, and relevant economic circumstances that affect our organization.


Getting Started

The Community Coaching program is funded by several different entities. Listed below
are the three main sources of funding we currently can accept for new program participants, but we are always willing to try to work with you if you have other ideas or ways of accessing our services. We will walk you through every step of the process, beginning with a site tour and an evaluation of your child by one of our Program Management Team and/or Board Certified Behavior Analysts. Call us at: 858-603-9835 or fill out our online request for a site visit.

Private Payment

The fastest and easiest way to get your child started with the Community Coaching Center program is private payment. We will walk you through every step of the process, beginning with a site tour and an evaluation of your child by our Program Director and/or Director of Behavioral Services and/or Clinical Director/BCBA. Call us at: 858-603-9835 to get started.

Insurance

As the incidence of Autism Spectrum Disorders grows, an increasing number of states are
mandating that insurance cover these disabilities with parity to other medical conditions. By the passing of the SB 946 legislation, California is among many states that now mandate Autism coverage for ABA services for insurance companies.

If your child or teen has been diagnosed with ASD, we can help you determine whether your health insurance plan will provide coverage for our services or other services. Start by contacting us at 858-603-4812 and we’ll walk you through the information we’ll need to check with your insurance company on eligibility.

*We are currently in-network providers for United Behavioral Health, Magellan/Blue Shield, Cigna, Aetna, and are in process with Aetna/Blue Cross.

Regional Centers

The first step to receiving state-funded services is to locate and contact your state’s
program or, in California, the Regional Center serving your County. A list can be found in the Directory of Regional Centers in California.

The Regional Center will perform a clinical evaluation to determine your child’s eligibility for service and to identify the type(s) of services he or she may need. These services can include ABA therapy and Socialization Training programs such as those provided by the Community Coaching program, as well as many other services to support individuals with developmental disabilities throughout their lifespan. A Regional Center case manager will be assigned to your child’s case to coordinate services, track progress of services they fund, and provide resource referrals.

Because Regional Centers receive state funding for their programs, they are mandated by state
legislation/legal interpretation of legislation as well as budgetary constraints and will dictate accessibility of funding for certain services a Regional Center may or may not offer. As such, a working understanding current legislation and your child’s individual rights is extremely important when it comes to accessing Regional Center funded services.
