So now the reason for this fund raising campaign. Our insurance doesnt cover anything in the form of developmental health care. The evaluations and tests are 100% out of pocket for us. There are also some parenting classes we really would love to take to help jon outside of his therapy's. But they too are not covered. Our insurance will cover a basic evaluation by a general psychiatrist which is going to cause jon to only get put on medications which we arent ready to do at this time. So to approach this from a therapeutic way it has to be paid out of pocket all the way. Nothing is cheap with medical care as we all know. The initial evaluation is $1500. The parenting one on ones are $105 per 1 hour session and it was suggested to plan on 10 to 12 sessions as that is the average for most parents to learn and feel comfortable. He also has major eating issues and we have been referred to an eating clinic for him with is another several hundred to get started in. He is getting speech therapy and occupational therapy thru school which seems to be going well this year but maybe need more outside of school.
Mike works very hard to provide for our family and does an amazing job at it. We have decent insurance but are stuck in what seems like an impossible but very time sensitive situation and every way we turn just seems to either be a dead end or just more money out of pocket.
We do not take this lightly asking others for help and even the smallest donation is so much appreciated.
