Insurance Billing Unit

Who we are:

The Early Intervention program provides free Insurance Billing Services for providers and children participating in the Early Intervention program. The unit was created in 2008 to assist Early Intervention providers in maximizing insurance payments.  The Insurance Billing Unit Service is specifically designed to bill commercial insurance companies on behalf of the provider free of charge.  The unit consists of coders and insurance professionals who generate claims on behalf of registered providers for submission to commercial insurance companies for payment determination.  The service is currently open to newly referred children ONLY and to small businesses who employ 7 or fewer providers.  If you would like more information or to sign up, please visit the Early Intervention website at or call the Help Desk at (800)634-8540 and ask to speak to a member of the Insurance Billing Unit.
