If your child is covered by one of the above Medicaid/Turquoise Care plans, there will be no cost to you for evaluation services. 

Please note, we are not in network for the following Medicaid/Turquoise Care plan provider:

FirstSteps Autism Evaluations, LLC is out of network for all commercial insurance plans. If your child is not covered by a Medicaid/Turquoise Care plan, you will be considered "self-pay" and will be responsible for the full cost of evaluation services. 

Evaluation Fees for Self-Pay

Self-pay pricing at FirstSteps ranges from $2500 to $3000 for evaluation. Although self-pay is an option for families who do not have a Medicaid/Turquoise Care plan, we strongly encourage families to work with a provider that is in-network for their child. UNMH ECEP receives state funding and therefore is able to accept all insurances, with no cost to families for evaluation. To be redirected to their evaluation page, click here: UNMH ECEP.
