Financial Assistance Programs

Understanding that insurance may not cover all aspects of therapy, we offer financial assistance programs to eligible families.

We also utilize grants to help families cover out-of-pocket expenses.

Flexible Payment Options

We understand that every family's financial situation is unique. Rise Up for Autism offers flexible payment plans to ensure that financial constraints do not hinder your child's access to our therapy services. Our financial team is here to work with you to find a payment solution that fits your needs.

Grants Department

In order to make services more affordable for families, Rise Up assists families in applying for a variety of grants to bring in additional funding for families to use for medical expenses, including ABA therapy.

Does my child need a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) for insurance to cover treatment?

For most insurance plans to cover ABA therapy and other autism-related treatments, a formal diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is typically required. This diagnosis ensures that treatments are deemed medically necessary.

Does Rise Up For Autism accept Medicaid for ABA therapy?

Medicaid only recently began covering ABA therapy in Illinois, and given some restrictions imposed by accepting this plan, many providers, including Rise Up for Autism, have opted out of accepting Medicaid at this time.

Instead, Rise Up for Autism, along with trusted insurance specialists, will assist families in purchasing a private insurance plan through the Affordable Care Act, which will allow for easier access to ABA therapy and other services. Rise Up also offers grants and payment plans to help reduce the costs associated with private insurance plans.
