All Early Intervention services are provided at no cost to the family
As per the New York State Department of Health Bureau of Early Intervention:

“You cannot be asked to pay any out-of-pocket costs, such as deductibles or co-payments, for any services your child and family receive in the Early Intervention Program. Under Public Health Law, providers of early intervention services are required to bill public and private insurance for early intervention services first, before submitting bills for payment by your municipality. Private insurance will only be billed if your insurance policy is subject to New York State law. New York State’s system of payments for the Early Intervention Program includes the use of public insurance (such as Medicaid and Child Health Plus) and private insurance (such as CDPHP, UHC and others) for reimbursement.”
