Can someone give me a few billing examples for ABA services?

What would be a typical process or steps to take to decide when to bill the secondary insurances ( commercial, medical, medicare, IEHP) ?

Thank you

I would bill secondary claims for ABA services as long as the secondary payer doesn't exclude ABA treatment. Know that majority of medicaid and medicare payers once you bill them secondary and receive a non covered denial you cannot bill the patient. There are notification forms you can have the patient sign prior to service that lets them know what they are responsible for and why.
