24:14:04:04.05. Use of private insurance -- Parental consent required. The department may not use the private insurance of a parent of an infant or toddler with a disability to pay for Part C services unless the parent provides parental consent, consistent with this article, to use private insurance to pay for Part C services for the child. This includes the use of private insurance when such use is a prerequisite for the use of public benefits or insurance.
Parental consent must be obtained:
(1) If Birth to Three seeks to use the parent's private insurance or benefits to pay for the initial provision of an early intervention service in the individualized family service plan; and
(2) Each time consent for services is required due to an increase, in frequency, length, duration, or intensity, in the provision of services in the child's individualized family service plan.
