How often to rediagnose?

Postby Twinboysmom » Thu Jul 09, 2015 6:56 pm

Does anybody know the standard for the time frame to obtain a new diagnosis for ASD, specifically with the ADOS-2 or similar? We are in a huge fight with UHC and they have cut off our insurance benefits related to ASD for my twins. We had our last official diagnosis 17 months ago with ADOS-2 but have followed up every 6 months with our pediatric neurologist.

That seems like a lot of follow-up to confirm (or re-confirm) a diagnosis! Were you able to resolve this with your insurance company?
