Financial Services Assistance
If you are a parent of a child with special needs, you may suffer from constantly worrying that you don’t have enough money to provide the best care for your child—or you fear that you will face bankruptcy from all the bills. Diagnoses such as cerebral palsy and Downs syndrome and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) may need equipment, services, and care that may not be covered by health plans or private extended health insurance. Plus, coverage varies, depending on the diagnosis. Many families go without or wait for years to get services that would have been beneficial if used earlier. For the parents of kids with special needs, the gap is wide: So many are forced to cobble together a plan to help their children, often at great financial and personal expense.
Financial benefits can be advantageous when it comes to paying for therapies and other treatments, or simply affording daily expenses that become difficult when families are unable to work. You may be eligible and qualify for financial benefits from health insurance, federal and state resources, and other resources. The most important thing to remember is there are many sources of funds available to help you get the care you need.
Yet even though children with disabilities and their families are entitled to certain rights, when you are trying to figure out what you are entitled to, it can be difficult and overwhelming. In addition to providing care for your child, you must constantly keep up with the never-ending trail of paperwork, as well as the agencies involved.
