Twice the Therapies

February 19, 2017

 

We have twins, who both have developmental disabilities! With them come two large smiles, two sweet giggles, and two sets of needed therapies. 

 

Martin is 3.5 years old and diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, Periventricular leukomalacia, and Global Developmental Delay (speech delays, fine and gross motor delays, and cognitive delay). He has aged out of First Steps and doesn't qualify for other medical assistance programs to cover therapies. Although our insurance currently covers some habilitative therapy, the number of visits are very limited, causing us to drastically reduce the necessary therapies that Martin was receiving during First Steps!

 

Ana, who is also 3.5 years old, is diagnosed with (non-verbal) Autism Spectrum Disorder and Global Developmental Delay. She has aged out of First Steps and doesn't qualify for other medical assistance programs to cover therapies. Although our insurance currently covers some habilitative therapy, the number of visits are very limited, causing us to reduce the necessary therapies that Ana was receiving in First Steps. Ana also has to have behavioral therapy, that is not covered by insurance at all, which makes affording habilitative therapies (without help of insurance) impossible!

 

It is important to get legislation passed requiring insurance to cover appropriate amounts of habilitative therapies, so my kids can get all the therapy they need!
