Birth to 3 programs are funded through a variety of funding sources. The federal government provides funding through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act Part C. The state of Wisconsin provides funding to the county you live in. Families that are in the Birth to 3 Program are asked to provide access to bill their insurance company. Some county Birth to 3 Programs have other funding sources such as grants, fundraisers, or agency funds.
In Wisconsin, we have a Parental Cost Share System where parents, who are determined able financially, share in the cost of early intervention services for their child. If your child might be eligible for BadgerCare Plus, Medicaid, or Katie Beckett programs, you will be asked to apply. For more information, see the the Parental Cost Share System brochure, P-23165a.
