It is with a heavy heart that we announce the discontinuation of bc-virtual.com.
In the height of the CoViD-19 pandemic, ABA service providers were forced to rapidly develop a means to deliver effective therapies remotely. Rising to the challenge, we, and our colleagues across the country, met that challenge head on. We had to make sure we could do everything possible to meet the needs of our clients.
But in meeting that challenge, it also forced us to consider a new question, "How many people were going without services before the pandemic?" We came to realize that many were limited by their geographies or other factors and tele-ABA could mean a world of difference to them.
Hence, we started bc-virtual.com and, for a time, it was promising. As the pandemic began to wind down, however, insurance companies and other regulatory bodies began pushing back on tele-ABA services despite the obvious benefits to the insurance providers' customers. As of current, it is simply not feasible to continue to deliver these services to residents outside of the state we provide on-site services.
But this isn't the end of the story. What happens next is up to you. We urge you to reach out to your representatives and ask for reform. Ask that everyone be entitled to these, and many other, services, regardless of physical location.
