Insurance

I just got off the phone with the Pacific Autism Center located here in Hawaii and they are in the process of starting to accept tricare (the military’s insurance that we have) to help cover the cost of tuition. This is huge!!!! As tuition is anywhere from 2,500 a month to over 10,000 a month there is no way we could afford this without help. We recently enrolled Lorenzo in ECHO, which I believe stands for Extended Health Care Option, under tricare and they sent us the info for applied behavioral analysis and the Pacific Autism Center was listed so I called and found out about them working with our insurance. I am going to try and get him in for an intake evaluation if it pans out that we can get the insurance to help pay for the tuition. This would be an answer to prayer!!!!!! They offer so many services and therapy that Lorenzo desperately needs, I am just hoping that this is not to good to be true. We will keep you posted!

Well that is very good news! Did you find out for sure if they will cover Lorenzo going there?

That would be awesome if it all works out for you! How far in school does the PAC go (Jr High, High School etc)? If it works out will you guys stay there longer?

I have not heard anything back from the school yet, we are just waiting right now. And no Holly we will not be staying here as of right now. We are here until summer 2010, but as this is considered overseas we can't really stay here because of Lorenzo's EFM status.
