Health Insurance

Many insurance plans cover services for people with disabilities.  

They also cover testing to see if your child has a developmental delay.

Did you know...?

  • Insurance plans may cover diagnostic testing and therapies to help with your child's development

  • If your child has a disability, they may be able to qualify for Healthy Louisiana (Medicaid) even if your family doesn't.

  • You can have Medicaid in addition to your other insurance.

If you don't have health insurance, you should try to get some. 


  • Health insurance is good for the whole family.  It's not just in case of serious injury.  It also pays for services like screenings and check-ups that can prevent you from getting sick.  If your child has developmental issues, you might need more of these visits.
