Approved Autism Evaluation Centers
The following is a list of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network approved
autism evaluation centers. For applied behavior analysis treatment to be covered, members are
required to go to a BCBSM- or BCN-approved autism evaluation center, or AAEC. These
providers are approved to evaluate and make or confirm a diagnosis of autism spectrum
disorder and develop a treatment plan. If the treatment plan recommends applied behavior
analysis treatment, and the treatment is pre authorized by the Blues then the treatment will
qualify for coverage. Members receiving services other than applied behavior analysis to treat
ASD do not need to receive the ASD diagnosis from an approved autism evaluation center or
The Blues will continue to build the network of qualified facilities to receive the approved autism
evaluation center designation. For the most current list of providers, please check this site often.
For more information about autism coverage, benefits, and providers please call the number on
the back of your Blues ID card.

Board Certified Behavior Analysts
If applied behavior analysis treatment is recommended by the AAEC, the member must obtain care from
a board-certified behavior analyst, or BCBA. If the BCBA obtains pre approval from the Blues the
treatment will be covered. In addition, under BCN coverage, the BCBA must be contracted with the
member’s health plan.
The Blues continue to build the network of board-certified behavior analysts for BCBSM. Please check
this site often for updated information.
