There are different ways to help families receive the services they may need. Early intervention programs in states can help provide a patient services before the age of three. After that age, programs may be available to help patients make the transition to elementary school. Once in school, continued support can be obtained through the school system.
Funding may be available to help cover care in medical setting. Appropriate coding may help reimburse care in the office.
To receive additional support, Medicaid eligible families may qualify for money allowed to them through Medicaid funds.
