Easter Seals is a credentialed Early Intervention provider for the state of Illinois. We participate in the referral of children to the Early Intervention Child and Family Connections office. Children ages birth to three, who are determined to be eligible for the program, receive Early Intervention services through Easter Seals.
Families are required by the state to authorize Easter Seals to bill their personal health insurance company before billing the Early Intervention Program. Fees not reimbursed by insurance are then billed to the state. Fees for services provided to families without personal health insurance, or those with Medicaid coverage, are billed directly to the state.
The Early Intervention Program assesses a monthly family participation fee based on family income and size. An Early Intervention Service Coordinator assigned to participating families will determine the fee and provide guidance throughout the family’s participation in the Early Intervention Program.
