    How it works.

    How it works.

    Through your JetBlue Medical Option, behavioral health coverage is available to help manage the needs of a child with autism. Anthem BlueCross BlueShield (Anthem) and UnitedHealthcare (UHC)’s Behavioral Health teams can help you with:

    • Locating in-network, ABA Therapy services for your child.
    • Providing clinical expertise on managing autism.
    • Exploring available benefits and find other options, such as helping to locate community resources and other Work-Life Management services, for your child.

    A typical ABA treatment plan may include:

    • Skills training (e.g., activities of daily living)
    • Behavioral therapy (e.g., family, group, individual)

    Eligibility for ABA services is dependent on a comprehensive clinical assessment by a physician or licensed psychologist, which confirms the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. Your Anthem or UHC representative will assist you in finding the right ABA treatment options and support to ensure claims and billing requirements are correct for coverage.

    Coverage doesn’t pay all expenses, but it can provide some financial assistance and clinical expertise to help you step through the complexities of autism.
