Have a list of what your insurance covers:
Insurance plans can vary significantly. You will need to call to ask about your individual plan. If you choose the route of not using insurance, the average cost of out-of-pocket autism evaluations in New Mexico can be costly.
If you have private insurance, there are several options (click the links for more information):
· The UNM Early Childhood Evaluation Program (for children under age 3)
· The UNM Autism Spectrum Evaluation Clinic (for children ages 3 and older)
Scheduling your evaluation with a provider may take time, it’s recommended you call for your appointment as soon as possible.
