Cigna is a health insurance company that provides coverage for a wide range of medical treatments and services.
One of the treatments that many families with children on the autism spectrum are interested in is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy. ABA therapy is a type of therapy that uses positive reinforcement to teach new skills and behaviors to individuals with autism.
The good news is that Cigna does cover ABA therapy for its members.
However, the extent of coverage may vary depending on the specific plan that the member has. It is important to check with Cigna to determine the details of the coverage for ABA therapy.
In general, most Cigna plans will cover ABA therapy as a medically necessary treatment for autism.
This means that the therapy must be prescribed by a doctor or licensed therapist and must be deemed medically necessary for the individual.
It is also important to note that Cigna may have certain requirements for ABA therapy coverage, such as a limit on the number of therapy sessions per year or a requirement for pre-authorization before starting therapy.
These requirements may vary depending on the plan and state of residence.
If you are interested in ABA therapy for your child and have Cigna insurance, it is recommended that you contact Cigna directly to determine the details of your coverage. You may also want to speak with your child's doctor or therapist to determine if ABA therapy is an appropriate treatment option.
In summary, Cigna does cover ABA therapy for its members, but the extent of coverage may vary depending on the specific plan. It is important to check with Cigna to determine the details of your coverage and any requirements for ABA therapy.
