A common question from families interested in admission to The Founders Center is around matters of insurance coverage. Thanks to House Bill 2467 in 2011 and the extension of the law with House Bill 1940 in 2015, coverage for Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services is required by most Virginia-based health insurance packages utilized by families for children with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder up through age 10.
Please note that there are some exceptions to the coverage mandate. Certain plans may not be included. Additionally, The Founders Center is not currently able to accept Medicaid or Medicaid-affiliated managed care plans for coverage of program fees.
