Do Families Pay for Services?

Many of our services are funded through federal, state, and local dollars, and are provided at no cost to you, this includes all initial evaluations, services from an Early Intervention Educator and Family Resources Coordinator services.

Family Cost Participation

In Washington State, there is a System of Payments and Fees Policy that applies to some Birth to Three Services, including Speech Therapy, Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy. For these services families are asked for permission to bill their child's health insurance.

You will not be asked to pay any fees for Birth-to-Three services if your child has Medicaid health insurance or your family's adjusted income is below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level.

You may be asked to pay fees, co-pays, co-insurance, or deductibles related to Birth-to-Three services if your family's adjusted income is above 200% of Federal Poverty Level. You may request to be placed on a sliding fee scale instead of sharing insurance.

Families will not be turned away for inability to pay for services.

Talk with your provider about options if you have any concerns.
