Birth-to-Three Funding Sources

Federal law guarantees the following Part C entitlements at no cost to families:

  • Child Find/Referral
  • Service coordination (Family Resource Coordination )
  • Comprehensive, multidisciplinary evaluation/assessment
  • Development and ongoing review of an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP)
  • Procedural safeguards for families (Parent Rights)

In King County, parents’ participation in payment for services is limited to assigning their insurance to the Birth-to-Three provider in order that the provider can bill for Birth-to-Three services. Most insurance companies require co-pays and/or deductibles. Co-pays and deductibles cannot be paid for with Washington State Part C funds and must be paid for by parents. However, no IFSP service can be denied because your family cannot afford it. View a letter from the Early Intervention Program Manager clarifying insurance, deductibles, and co-pays related to early intervention services: Payment Policy (pdf).

Depending on the individual child and situation, services are paid for by various public and private funding sources, which can include:

  • Family’s insurance or Medicaid
  • IDEA Part C funds
  • King County Developmental Disabilities funds
  • Charitable Contributions
  • School districts
