BlueShield of Northeastern New York complies with the New York State Autism Mandate, Affordable Care Act, and Federal Parity provisions requiring health plans to provide specific coverage for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), including Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Assistive Communication Devices (ACD).
Not all benefit plans cover these services
Verification of benefits is necessary. To determine if ASD services are covered, call the provider service phone number on the back of your patient’s ID card.
Applied behavior analysis and assistive communication devices require preauthorization and medical necessity review.
