How Trumpet Streamlines Insurance Approval For ABA Therapy

Written by: Joshua Sleeper

When your child is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), there are millions of thoughts and questions running through your mind. During this time, you have enough to worry about – and it’s Trumpet’s goal that getting insurance coverage for your child’s Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy isn’t one of them. Over the past year, the Trumpet team has been working hard to streamline the insurance process to make the approval process as quick, easy, and painless as possible so your child can access the therapy they need as soon as possible.

Improving The Approval Process

Trumpet is proud to announce we’ve been approved for delegated credentialing with several insurance carriers. Delegated credentialing is an agreement with an insurance company that allows Trumpet to conduct the provider credentialing process in-house. Insurance providers require the credentialing process to allow autism treatment providers to conduct and bill for ABA services. This process can be lengthy and requires verification of dozens of pieces of information, including:

  • Education
  • Certification
  • Licensure verification
  • Employment history
  • Background check verification
  • Specific attestations of competence and qualification to provide services

How Does Delegated Credentialing Better Serve Families Affected By Autism?

The transition from payer credentialing to delegated credentialing means that Trumpet can conduct the review in 1-2 weeks, while the traditional process takes 90 or more days to complete. This means our qualified therapists can get through the approval process and begin supporting children with autism much faster. We believe all individuals with autism should have access to high-quality autism treatment, and delegated credentialing allows us to provide our outstanding ABA clinical services to more patients and families. Additionally, our internal credentialing process has been verified and approved by payers as being accurate, thorough, and meeting all the requirements to ensure our therapists are qualified to provide services. This is a significant endorsement of our process, our ongoing monitoring of our providers, and the caliber of our ABA therapists.
