Medicaid Insurance

In many cases, Medicaid will cover your child's treatment costs. Most states have coverage available if your child meets their necessity guidelines.

Eligibility requirements vary by state, but will likely include a psychiatric evaluation and testing.

Adoption Assistance Program Funding (AAP)

Zion Hills Academy works with many adopted children and their families. If your daughter was adopted through the state of California's adoption system, AAP may be a financial resource available to you, even if you live outside of California currently.

What does AAP Cover?

In most cases, AAP funding covers the monthly rate for the child's entire stay for up to 18 months. When behavioral and clinical needs require additional treatment, there are usually renewal terms available.

What Are My Costs?

Parents are responsible to cover the enrollment fee which is utilized to pay for non-covered expenses during their stay which may include:
  • Routine Medical Care
  • Routine Dental Care
  • Routine Orthodontic Care
  • Clothing
  • Hygiene Items
  • Medications
  • Medication Co-Pays

How Do I Access This Program?

Out of state placement funding is managed and approved at the county level through the child's caseworker. Contact your caseworker to start the approval process.
