In 2020, Pennsylvania changed its requirements and regulations for behavioral health providers to allow children up to 21 years old with a mental health diagnosis and a written order to receive ABA services, including 1:1 ABA therapy with a behavior technician, supervision and program development by a BCBA, and group therapy for social and emotional development.

It is important that the written order form contains as much detail and information as possible. If your provider needs assistance completing the written order, they may contact our office and speak with our Intake Coordinator or contact the CCBH office assigned to your county. Most insurances also require that we receive a copy of a recent diagnostic report from the last 2 years which identifies the assessment measures utilized to determine the diagnosis given to your child. These documents can be uploaded to our Client Portal, Central Reach at anytime after you have added your child to our waitlist.
