Unfortunately, not many Autism therapies are covered by insurance, if any at all. One of the things, you are going to get state funded programs. Sometimes, you have a private funded that you can get a percentage back out of your insurance, but a majority of these treatments are not funded at all. You end up privately paying. One of the things that we offer at Generation Rescue is a biomedical grant program, where we have families that want to treat their children through biomedical protocol, and can't afford to do so, can apply for this grant program. What it pays for is 90 days. We provide them with supplementation, dietary counseling, a mentor through the program, lab testing, and two doctors visits. What it does is it helps give them a start and a baseline to treating their child. Then they can look at what the big concerns are and then move forward into with the doctors guidance as to how to treat their child. It gives them an opportunity that they would not be able to afford otherwise.
