The state intends to seek an amendment to the Medicaid coverage offered to individuals with autism to include “Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) related services for EPSDT (Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment) eligible individuals. Individuals with Autism will have access to a multidisciplinary array of services that are individually planned and coordinated. Services are identified in a plan of care that is inclusive of parent/caregiver and youth choice, and best practice decisions between formal and informal supports/services and families that yield sustainable growth for the youth and family across life domains.”
Please refer to the full Notice here.
