How to Access Our Services Warwick House
The Warwick House Intensive Residential Treatment
In Pennsylvania, services may be funded directly by the PA Medical Assistance fee for service program or through a Medical Assistance Managed Care Organization.
Coverage may also be available through certain commercial insurers on a case-by-case basis.
The Warwick House is a contracted provider with PA Medical Assistance, certain Medical Assistance Managed Care Organizations including Magellan Behavioral Health (MBH), Community Behavioral Health (CBH), Community Care Behavioral Health (CCBH) and some private/commercial insurance carriers.
Services typically require prior authorization based on coverage guidelines for treatment established by PA Medical Assistance and/or those guidelines established by the managed care organization / commercial insurance carrier.
It is important to note that children and families who are authorized for treatment by either Medical Assistance or a Medical Assistance Managed Care Organization are not required to pay out of pocket for most treatment expenses.
However, in those circumstances when private (commercial) insurance is accessed for coverage, services may be subject to policy specific deductible and co-payment requirements.
For more information and for assistance in navigating through the complexities of obtaining coverage, please contact our Admissions Coordinator at 215-491-7404.

Applied Behavior Analysis
What Is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)?
ABA is a set of principles based in learning and behavior. It stems from the idea that a person’s behavior is the result of past learning and the current environment.
ABA is evidence-based, which means it has met standards of scientific testing, including its effectiveness and usefulness.
ABA is considered a “best practice” treatment by the U.S. Surgeon General and is endorsed by many other organizations including The Autism Society of America, The National Institute of Mental Health, and The American Academy of Pediatrics.
Some common strategies used in ABA include positive reinforcement, prompting, modeling, generalization, and breaking tasks into small steps.
What Can ABA Do?
- Reduce Challenging Behaviors
Tantrum, aggression, self-injury, repetitive behaviors, noncompliance, and more.
- Teach Important Skills
Communication, social skills, tolerance, daily living tasks, community safety and involvement, and more.
MCC offers ABA services for individuals through age 21 with Autism Spectrum Disorder and related disorders. Types of services include:
- In-home services
- Center-based programming
- Social skills groups
- Caregiver training
ABA is covered by Pennsylvania Medical Assistance as managed through Community Behavioral Health (CBH), Magellan, and Community Care Behavioral Health as well as many private insurance plans for children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
In New Jersey, we are contracted with Burlington, Camden and Mercer Counties through the division of Child and Family Services and Perform Care to provide ABA services under their intensive In-Home behavioral services program.
