But I just talked to our insurance company in advance of visiting DS's therapist for the first time, and our coverage gets WAY better if he gets a diagnosis.
We're 99% certain he's on the spectrum, but still waiting on that developmental pedi visit.
Yeah, that was one reason I pushed for a medical dx ASAP.
Of course, then we found out that insurance was like, "yeah, we don't cover autism!" so that sucked, but at least you won't have to deal with that part.
