Payor of Last Resort (POLR) is used when no other funding source is available to pay for an identified Early Intervention service that is needed to meet an outcome on the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP). Other funding sources that should be reviewed with the family include Medicaid or private insurance and any local funds, such as county boards of developmental disabilities. With parent consent, public benefits and/or private insurance may be used in conjunction with POLR.
