Many insurance companies may cover part of the cost of the program; however we cannot guarantee that our services will be covered by any particular health insurance program. Please call and confirm your own coverage as well as any requirements for pre-authorization. Ask your child's health insurance carrier if they cover "outpatient mental health" services at UCLA. The outpatient finance department will verify your insurance coverage after you have submitted a completed enrollment packet.
