self funded; ABA; insurance

Hello everyone my 2y5m son is newly diagnosed and just found out my husbands insurance is self funded and does not cover ABA services. He works for Bergen county in NJ. I do not qualify for Medicaid and am looking at spending close to 6,000 dollars a month. It’s too late to apply for health insurance in the marketplace because according to them this is not a life changing event. Anyone have some advice or insight they could share. I feel hopeless and frustrated.

Look into RDI and DIR/Floortime instead, these are cognitive-developmental interventions and far superior to simplistic ABA.
