Medicaid and Autism: Accessing ABA Therapy

July 23, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Medicaid and Autism

The Seminar Series is intended to provide professionals in the community educational information about all neurodevelopmental disorders as well as opportunities to meet and connect.

Each month we invite a different speaker to address a variety of issues specific to this population, including diagnosis and treatment, future planning, behavioral therapy, government benefits, and more topics of interest.

Many families in Illinois with children with autism spectrum disorder struggle to access services when the child has Medicaid. This month’s seminar will review Medicaid coverage and the Affordable Care Act with regards to service coverage for applied behavior analysis (ABA) as well as other funding options that may be available to families.

Presenter: Dr. Carly Lapin, Ph.D., BCBA-D

Learning Objectives:

  1. Educate providers and families how to obtain ABA therapy with Medicaid coverage
