24:14:04:04.06. Use of private insurance -- Parental refusal to consent. Early intervention services, as specified in the child's individualized family service plan and to which the parent has consented, may not be denied due to a parent's refusal to allow the parent's or child's private insurance to be billed for such services. Parents may refuse to allow providers to bill their or their child's private insurance if they are concerned about the potential impact on their private health insurance, such as an increase in premiums or the lifetime cap.
If a parent refuses access to the parent's or the child's private insurance, the Part C program shall still provide early intervention services to the child as specified on the individualized family service plan.
